    OK - now that we know you are using auto... I would say that it is not programmed to dispense enough water for a full 2 ounce shot. I would assume its calibrated to dispense 2 ounces of water - period - without considering how much water is absorbed by the coffee puck. Ignore the auto for now and focus on manual extraction...

    Thanks all for the guidance. I made several attempts today with unsatisfactory results. I've given up and have packed up the machine to return.

    I'm off to find a quality grinder and return to my French Press...certainly not a latte like I had hoped...but at least I will have something to drink in the morning.

    Thank you for taking the time to help. Please keep sharing your talents with other because they are very much appreciated.

    Do they taste bad? As Shadow mentioned... you can't look at coffee as input X and getting out Y. Each coffee can vary so much ... go by your taste buds.

    Thing is espresso takes a lot of time/effort/patience to really achieve something good consistently. Seems many think once they buy decent equipment, get decent coffee, etc. they will hit the espresso peak fairly quickly. I will be the first to say espresso is never mastered as so many variables change on a regular basis it leaves you chasing after it.
    I'm a legend among my own kind... you my friend are just a legend in your own mind. Later!
