    Bezzera BZ35 fast dosing.

    Hi all. My very first post so go easy!
    I have two BZ 35's. One plumbed-in and one tank fed. I have had both for a few years but never been happy with the crema from either machine. The dose is very fast....maybe 5 to 8 seconds for a double. I know it should all be down to grind and tamping but I have tried everything! I have ground my own from course to as fine as the grinder will go. I have tried various brand/grinds of shop-ground coffee. I have tamped light, hard, bloody hard and everything in between. I even turned up my own aluminium tamper on the lathe! If I use a really fine grind and tamp firm the puck is wet on top.The crema itself is watery and, well, not creamy. Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Are you using freshly roasted beans, say no more than three weeks old?
