    Assuming you're talking about after the shot is pulled, it could also be the fact that your machine has no 3-way solenoid to pull the excess brew pressure off the puck after extraction. Therefore you will have a somewhat soupy puck. Later!

    Your grind is too fine

    The paper filters may clog up if the grind is too fine. Also, some beans may have cocao or spices on the beans, when you grind them up the cocoa will gum up the filter.
