    Question Controlling yield on a lever

    i know I'm missing something obvious, but how do I control yield on a lever espresso machine?
    Let's say I want a 1:3 ratio, how do I pump more or less water with a lever?

    You pull the cup away.

    You adjust the grind and dose (and pre-infusion time) so that blonding occurs at the brew ratio you are aiming for, and pull the cup away and let the rest go into the drip tray.

    Oh, I am used to a semi-automatic, so I thought there was a way to fix the amount of water sucked in by the lever.

    You wouldn't actually want to do that, because you'd then deny yourself the opportunity of letting the shot continue to pour if it was well short of blonding when the water supply runs out.
