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

Hello to everyone, This is my first time posting on this website. I would like to think of my self as something above a beginner when it comes to espresso. However i have a question which might just be stupid but i cant seem to find an answer anywhere. I have a very basic and cheap coffee setup which includes

ECM Synchronika vs Lucca M58

I am now (and for the foreseeable future) using a sette 270. I single dose and I enjoy the workflow. I have considered adding a df64 so I can experiment with flat burrs but that's not a pressing requirement for now

Profitec Pro 600 Review from a Pro 500 Vet.

I would think the biggest benefit of the pro 600 would be the dedicated PID brew boiler, so you can dial in a specific brew temp. I've owned my pro 500 for 4.5 years, and that's the one feature I want, as otherwise the flush technique for HX machines is a bit of a guessing game to get the

Profitec Pro 600 Review from a Pro 500 Vet.

To Fix a Breville Dual Boiler or Replace Completely

Definitely appreciate the 2 cents. The only reason I'm trying really hard to not be done with it is the $ it's just a lot to swallow but on the flip side throwing it into this unit I lost all faith in the made in China nonsense. Believe it or not I went through probably 3 or 4
