Even if this isnt the right place to post this info, Im glad you did as I was having trouble with getting a dry puck. Its been a bit hit and miss so far!
The extraction time Im getting is ok (coffee starts ccoming out after 4-8 seconds) but Im left with a wet puck. I have a Gaggia Baby.
If anyone has any other suggestions, it would be most appreciated! Will definately try Gussys suggestion at next coffee break.
