Breville BES250 + Hario Mini Mill = No Crema
Need some of your sage advice. I recently got back into coffee and broke out my old Breville BES250 (hopefully someone has had some experience with it) and was hoping to make some decent coffee with it again, failed though; consider me a beginner. Have some fairly fresh beans (roasted on the 1st of September), ground fine with my Hario Mini Mill (5 clicks) then packed into the Breville's pressurised basket, slight tamp. However getting no crema, what am I doing wrong?
I've done limited further experiments such as finer grind and more tamp pressure, but that resulted in longer extraction. Suggestions?
