    Question about Pressure gauge on Breville 870

    Iíve seen many post about how the breville 870 gauge is not accurate and should be ignored.

    But if thatís the case, hoe to go about to judge a good shot being pulled?

    A pressure gauge can give you a decent baseline, but you should always rely on taste, texture, color, etc. to really dial things in. Some machines have very precise brew pressure gauges, but I personally wouldn't rely on one as I'm more about dialing things in with what works for me, not just numbers.
    I'm a legend among my own kind... you my friend are just a legend in your own mind. Later!

    Thank you. Iíve noticed that lately as well. In fact of the pressure is super high like around 1-1:30 range.. the espresso taste good and not bitter or sour.
