i bought a ALL-CLAD presso espresso maker after i read some of reviews on this site.
i need to ask what the proper grind for this maker, where i used French press grind like mentioned in the manual with the maker, but water come out very quickly, and coffee is diluted. i used then drip maker grind, it is better than french grind and coffee more authentic, but still, coffee has bitter taste and some how diluted, and no crema at all, where coffee comes out filter basket very fast, like about less than ten seconds.( i dont have a tamper and i used fresh illy ground coffee).
also, i saw the modifications that some of reviewer did to their maker using teflon, is there a specific teflon i should use (extra virgin teflon for example). And if i am going to attach teflon to the ring piston, what glue should i use without affecting taste of espresso.
need your advice baristas.
and thank uuuuuuuuuuu a lot home baristassssssss.
