    LeLit PL042TEMD OPV question

    Hi everybody first post here...last week we took the plunge into the coffee world coming from a Jura Micro 1 to a LeLit combi PID.After a week of use getting some great shots .However i cant seem to get the brew pressure to 9 bar when extracting its always around 11 to start maybe down to 10.5 at best but getting shots around 25 to 30 seconds for a double which taste and look good.
    I have tried coarser grinds,tamping lighter , using less coffee to get a lower pressure shot but it always comes out too fast,under extracted.
    Should the OPV be limiting the pressure to lower than 10.5 -11 as it says factory set at 9?
    Or i realise being a newbie i could be missing things in technique and inexperience ?
    Cheers Jamie

    Hi Jamie,

    The pressure shown on the gauge is higher than the pressure at the coffee puck. 10.5-11 on the gauge is about right.
