Why is my coffee coming out too slowly?
Here is a list of causes of slow coffee extractions:
Firstly, make sure that you are following every step of my Espresso Workflow
You may have too much coffee in your PF so check that the coffee dose is correct. Read my FAQ on Coffee Dosing
The coffee grind may be too fine so try a coarser grind.
Check the grind distribution. I recommend using a Coffee Distribution Tool
Make sure that your tamp is even and firm.
It is always best to use fresh coffee beans, not supermarket beans.. Read my Blog about coffee bean freshness and storage by clicking Here
