It's very dependent on basket shape. I always preferred the deeper single Izzo used to supply with their machines about 17 years ago, dosed with 9g they worked well.

i did a piece on it about 16 years ago now.

Maybe try with freshly roasted dark roast beans? Will the gas slow down the extraction a bit?

Found a guy to make them for me in my country (Indonesia) and it's perfect.

I suspected the same. For myself, I will entirely skip pre-infusion from now on, when pulling singles.

I do have the 41mm LM single basket. If you have any other tips/advice, that would be great.
Do you think I should flow control, or just set a lowish pressure at the pump (7,8 bars) and keep it there for the sake of consistency, with my singles?
Hey I sent you a PM
