I cant find an answer: Espresso pulls fast, is it because of brew pressure?

I think you might find it more important to get a decent grinder rather than make any changes to the machine that only has to heat water and pump it. Getting a pressurized portafilter may make the machine a bit more forgiving of preground coffee, it certainly makes it look better and probably taste better, but that's just changing

3 Burr Sets, 1 Grinder. Worth It?

Cheap ones are marginal for espresso and close to useless for brew where the brew ratio is nearly an order of magnitude greater.

I cant find an answer: Espresso pulls fast, is it because of brew pressure?

Sorry to ask but: Are you sure that it's non pressurized? So did you buy the portafilter afterwards? Because all cheap espresso machines that I know always have pressurized ones.

Weber Key Grinder

Hey friends. Thanks for sharing my video. I can confirm this was a fingerprint. My grinder doesn't have any shaft issues or concerns as mentioned a few pages back. At least - that I've noticed. Excited to share more in time

Breville Barista Express requiring coarser grind

It goes a notch past center with the filter, but with the cleaning disk it goes all the way to the right. *just realized I used the pressurized filter with no disk in my last comment
