Hi there Cortic.
What do you mean by this?* Do you mean youre using an unrpressurised basket?* Does your portafilter basket have lots of holes on the inside but only one hole at the bottom?*
In that case youre still using a pressurised basket.* Adjusting your tamp pressure or grind wont make much difference.
If youre not using a pressurised basket, then you might need to take the grind finer on your Sunbeam.* Try it and see - it may not be bitter.* Theres another thread being commented on fairly regularly suggesting that tamp pressure isnt going to make a huge difference to extraction speed, but adjusting the grind will.
