    Can someone explain why it drips out 2 sides? Why not just have a single drip? I see videos of people just barely getting each side of their cup within the drips. Why do this? I can't think of any advantage. And if there is some advantage, why not have 3 or 4 of them?

    Thanks for a great video. I have the same machine and one frustration I have is that coffee comes out already during the pre-infusion. (Before hitting the “Espresso Range”) Because pre-infusion has low pressure, so the coffee tastes sour no matter what.
    How to fix it? I use 1 as grand size and +1 for temperature. Or is it beans?

    Nooooooo, I just tried your link to purchase my coffee match, and it turned out that they only provide USA. What about the rest of the world ? What about us ??? So sad, I was so glad to finally try a coffee that seems to be made for me.

    Gosh I hate this machine, the grinder sucks, the OPV sucks, but if you sort all of that out, it is kinda convenient..
    If you really want to learn how to make great coffee - get something without a pump, where you just have to focus on the essentials, learn to feel the coffe.. A lever like a La Pavoni or something like that.

    Those looking for a less expensive option that still makes a great cup of espresso should consider one of the manual pull machines. These are typically lever action. I picked up a Flair for ~$200 with the pressure gauge, and the machine should last me a decade. Also... it's light and portable. There are other similar models out there, so definitely shop around.

    Wayyyyyyyy under extracted. Use a finer setting on the grinder and/or tamp harder.

    A stove top espresso maker can make delicious cafe cubano (cafecito). You do not need an expensive machine to make quality espresso.

    I have the same machine and follow the same methodology around weighing 18g and not storing beans. Grind 4/5 is where I settled, tried pretty much all the settings. Agree the grinder isn't the greatest and can be inconsistent. But 2 years in now and I'm still loving the machine. Probably preaching to the converted here, but I upgraded the tamp to a 53mm calibrated one I found on Amazon. I found the one that came with it ok, but didn't fit snugly enough. Great video BTW

    I have a DeLongi, and I have a 200 yr/old hand cranked crush grinder. I like my coffee to have a perfect consistency that I cannot get with electric grinders. I use a mix of an organic Dark French roast and a medium Espresso Roast for my espresso. My brew time is 27 seconds for 2 shots, let them sit for a full second to settle, before transfering to my drinking cup.
