I''m pretty new in business here.
For my work I spend a lot of time in Italy so drink also a lot of really great coffee. (that''s how the Italians call an espresso)
That''s why I bought a Vibiemme Domobar Super Elettronica.

My question is; how much or how fast should the water come out of the shower. When I look without a portafilter it seems the water comes out pretty slowly.
My machine doesn''t give more than 12 bar. When the coffee is to fine the pressure is to much and there''s no coffee coming out of the portafilter.
Is this only because the grid is to fine?


You won't have a lot of water flow out of the screen. It might look a little inconsistant, don't worry that's fine

Make sure the screen is clean

Do a pinch test on your coffee grinds. Put some in the palm of your hand and pinch it. do the grinds fall over or do they stay packed?

If your grind is not tight enough the water will flow right through.

If you have to fine of a grind, you will get a lot of bar pressure. Or, if you are tamping to hard this will also build pressure.

Find your grind. not to powdery and not to course.
Avoid over tamping

Dont forget about the creme' gotta have creme' too.

Good Luck
