    Gaggia Titanium making weak coffee

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,
    Im new here, and I just got myself a Gaggia Titanium from HN for a great price in the New Year sales. So far I have only played with it a little bit, but so far the coffee it is making is pretty weak. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this machine, and has any suggestions to make a stronger coffee.
    Thanks for any help.

    Let me guess... *The sales pitch was Fully Auto and maybe even some beans tossed in... OH no a post x-mas sale...

    Lots of user reviews on teh shopping web pages by users... Not that good... But I must admit!! If they are looked after and the right beans and care taken.. Maybe...... However most do not know how complicated coffee can be and assume Auto will fix every thing...

    Unless the beans are fresh (from a respected roaster - NOT supermarket or GJ etc) then you will get what ya get... *With stale beans ya have to grind finer... OH and then the machine may need some extra servicing as well.. *Also beans stored in teh grinder... Stale after a few hrs...

    Use the CS search feature *http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1257241858 and also read about coffee here;

    Ah ha. I think Ive solved the problem. I reckon i was turning the dosage dial the wrong way, so it was making the weakest coffee possible rather than strongest. I looked at the fine print and it says that it takes a couple of coffees for it to change. O well all sorted now.

    Thanks for the above links. Very interesting reading. I have a lot to learn about coffee. For now though Ill stick to pushing a button. Much easier when Im in a semi-comatose state in the mornings.
