    Need some help!! Coffee to strong

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I need some help my coffee is to strong but to get the crema i have to fill the basket to the top!!!

    People have suggested 3 things

    (1) Stop the shot before it is completed

    (2) Use a lighter roast( WHich i am about to attempt)

    (3) DIlute with hot water and milk

    Is there anything else i can do? Thank again

    What do you drink? Short black? latte? Cappa? Flat white?

    if its short black, then diluted with hot water(i wouldnt)

    if its espresso based milk drinks, pull a short shot or restricted shot(ristretto)and add milk, or pull a normal shot and add more milk.....

    and.......
