Soggy espresso grounds

I have a brand new Russell Hobbs Elipta espresso and filter coffee maker. The coffe it makes is great, but the espresso grinds are always soggy and have water on top when I have finished making a cuppa. I have tried tamping the coffee as hard as possible, but it made no difference. I am using the correct coffee ... Lovely Illy espresso not filter coffee. The coffee is still delicious and the machine makes a fabulous crema on top, it's just annoying to remove the spent grounds ... Can't just bang it on the bin and have a handy puck of coffee pop out. I have to wash it away. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: knocked out spent coffe grounds come out mushy not like a puck

Adjust the grind on the machine, or the amount of coffee the grinder puts into the chamber.

Can I adjust the water flow for finely ground coffee?


You probably have coffee ground for a drip coffee pot, not an automatic drip coffee maker. With a drip coffee pot, you put the coffee in and add the hot water on top of that. You might want to try a coffee press. They are fantastic for the finer grinds of coffee. Some Mexican coffees are ground almost as fine as flour and a press works great. You can get a press for about $12 & up.

Water on top of the filter after brewing


my experience with this machine is that this varies greatly with the type of beans you use. I would experiment with a few types of beans, roasts, and you might get lucky.
