    Brew Pressure Dilemma

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all, Iím fairly new to all this so I am seeking advice please. I decided to do my own full descale which tock a heck of a long time flushing and flushing as I let the solution sit in the tank for at least an hour as I wasnít sure how long it had been since my new to me second hand machine had been de scaled.
    After I was finished I noticed the brew pressure was down by using a blind as I was flushing the exit tube into a second container to dump as I was introducing fresh water and dumping what came out. This mad sense as I removed quite a bit of nasty stuff and thought the internals must have more volume?

    So I reset the brew pressure on the gauge at 10 bar to expect around 9 at the group head.
    i now find extraction is indicating high around 13 with a 2oz extraction taking about 25sec. The creme looks good and the coffee tastes good. Should I be concerned about the high brew pressure indication?

    Might taste better if you back it off again!

    I’m just confused on how it can change. I adjusted the brew pressure live with a blind in the portafilter and ran it at that pressure for 10sec to ensure it was stable. Do you think I have used the wrong technique. Love to here everyone’s thoughts

    Do you have another blind filter could try?
