    Tiger striping

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ive noticed that with all my shots Im getting tiger striping as it comes out of the spouts. But when I look at the puck I cant see any obvious channeling. Is this normal?

    I do the usual finger level of the coffee and solid tamp with a decent tamper.

    I guess its a bit hard to tell whats happening without a naked portafilter.
