:o Aqua! What you need to do is soup it up so you can get 50 bar. Or make it twice as good and get 100bar or a whole pub of bars! ;)Originally Posted by 75656175340 link=1252597956/0#0 date=1252597956
These machines use a pressurised filter basket- many holes one side and just one or two on the lower side. They create foamy brown stuff (which I wouldnt call espresso) by running ridiculous pressures in the basket. This allows them to work with stale supermarket coffee.
Given a choice, what you really want is about 1/2 the pressure you have an a real basket. A search on this site will provide you with more information and a pathway to better coffee.
