    Timing my espresso - Gaggia Pure

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Gday all,

    I just took delivery of my first espresso machine this morning - a 2nd hand Gaggia Pure.

    Im using it with my Breville Smart Grinder, and already getting results that Im very happy with.

    One question though - the more expensive machines Ive used had timed shots for singles & doubles.* This just has a pump on / off switch.

    In terms of timing how long a shots taking, what am I looking for?* The water to be coming out clear?* Something else?

    Im trying to dial in the right tamp pressure / coffee volume / grind, and its tricky without knowing what length of time its taking to pull a shot right now.

    Anyway, TIA, and thanks to CS generally for all the advice that has lead me to this point!* Ive learned a lot lurking here already, you guys are an amazing resource :-)

    Cheers!
    John

    30ml/60ml (single/double) in 30 seconds with the extraction being stopped when the stream starts to blond.
