I usually buy beans from Spinelli (out of convenience) and noticed that only the first 2 days, I can get a good extraction timing of 25s. Once it moves into day 3 or 4 territory, with the same grind setting, the flow starts to be too fast.

Is this normal for you guys as well? I always wondered if it's our humidity or something that causes it to change to fast.

My grinder is a Sette, with 2 shims installed. Grinding at 3-B settings.
Only use beans neccesary for your drink. Do not leave the beans in the hopper and store it in an air tight container or bag after.

Is bottomless portafilter worthwhile? How will it affect the taste?

Normal, whether you get from local roasters or not, is the same.
It got to do with oxidation. Even worse if it's light roast.

Visually unacceptable but still taste good.

Bottomless helps to correct prep work, ie, distribution, tamping, etc

Seeing how the pour starts and end can give clues on equipment and prep work.

Taste wise i am pretty sure there is not much difference compared to single or double portafilter.

can be frustrating as well. U maybe making alot of coffee.
ppl who can taste the difference sure it affects but if U cannot discern the taste in a blind taste test its not worth while.

Totally worth it if you are a beginner and want to improve prepping the basket.

getting consistently even pours will help you nail the taste profile you want as you fine tune other brewing variables (time, grind size, temp, preinfusion, brew ratio)

Need recommendation to upgrade my espresso machine.

Iím using DeLonghi ec680 and Breville smart grinder pro now.

Any espresso machine to recommend? My budget maybe around $1200. Grinder still can use my current one. Think itís still good enough. My main concern is startup time as I make my coffee every morning before I go to work so I canít afford 15mins before start pulling.

How is the Gaggia classic at $729?
What about Lelit Victoria but itís at $1399. https://cowpressocoffee.sg/collections/equipment

between the 2, I go for the Victoria. U can go for the Nuova Simonelli Oscar 2. on carousell listed for $1350.

if U cannot wait 15mins, I guess U buy a smart plug to turn on your machine b4 u get up from bed. or U can change your routine much like I did. I wake up and 1st thing go turn on my machine before performing other task. U don't have to stand there and wait for 15-30mins.

Both are single boiler, not recommended if you drink mainly with milk.

Yea I drink milk drinks now. Whatís the difference between thermalblock and single boiler? I find my ec680 now is quite ok. Donít have to wait too long.
