    Thanks - will be buying some of those. Also today found some fresher beans in the cupboard - 3 weeks from roasting date - and sure enough the shots are much better. Who knew? Everyone bar me, it seems.

    Another stupid question if i may: I don't really get what the "double" function is on the espresso pour. I guess the larger basket (20g) is a 2-shot espresso and the smaller a single shot, but what does pressing "double" on the brew do for the coffee? More liquid (hence less strong)? More pressure? Good for 2 cups (one on each size of the portafilter)?

    Milk volume question: Hi all, loving this machine. A question please: I feel the flat whites are too milky if using all the milk in the jug (when filled to just below the spout as recommended by Breville). What do y'all do please? Fill the jug wih less milk (but then potentially compromise the microfoam)? Fill the jug as recommended but not use all the milk? Or just go with all the milk?

    I would try putting less milk in the jug to start with and see what happens, might be alright. If not just don't use it all, or try getting a slightly smaller jug.
