Why is the espresso flowing through the pour spouts of my espresso machine so quickly?
Confirm that you’re timing the flow rate from the moment you turn the brew function on, until the time you turn the brew function off. If the coffee is pouring too quickly, and if your coffee is not to your liking, check the following:
Is there enough coffee in the filter basket?
Is the coffee too coarsely ground?
Is the coffee stale or otherwise unsuitable?
