I just got a slightly used Rancilio Silvia machine. I can't figure out all the components to get the perfect shot. It seems as if the grind is to fine and when tamped there is very little water that gets through. The shot dribbles out and is not complete within the 20-30 desired time. I've tried a slightly courser grind and it was a bit better but almost to watery. I have had a few successful shots but haven't figured out the common denominator.
