My classic move is to have the switch on from puffing the previous shot, adding beans, and closing the cover with the basket and funnel nowhere near the chute.

Ages ago I went to fill the reservoir of Silvia and nearly poured water into Rocky. - 2000-2023 - a good run, its time is done

So basically the biggest possible area for extraction, so should be good :P

Oh yass. I prep the basket outside the portafilter, and periodically forget to insert it. Shot tends to be kinda weak. :roll:

Then there's the time I poured orange juice into my "cappuccino". Latte art definitely suffers.
