Need a decent grinder or a deft hand with a blade frinder, fresh espresso coffee beans and not too much water. Espresso grind is closer to turkish than drip. Much like Melitta grind. If needed a good coffee shop will grind it for you. A week suppply is preferable. If quantity of water can be adjusted, one shot is about 1&3/4 oz. a double shot, well x2=3.5 oz. You cannot get a six ounces espresso and still call it that; its dilluted or "allonge". A latte w/o milk. Let me know

Are there different types of espresso coffee?


The classic form of espresso is a small shot (2-3oz) of pressure brewed coffee made using about 1tblspn of finely ground coffee. There are several ways in which this original format has been altered to come up with various types of espresso coffee drinks. Here is a short list of some of the more popular varieties:

Americano - espresso with hot water added to dilute the strength

Macchiato - espresso shot with a small amount of frothed milk on top

Corretto - espresso mixed with a bit of alcohol

Cappuccino - a shot of espresso topped with 1/3 steamed milk and 1/3 frothed milk

Mocha - a latte with chocolate powder/chocolate sauce added

Weak coffee is the result of brew


Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

My Keurig B60 is Suddenly Brewing WEAK Coffee


I don't have a solution but have just experienced the same problem and am baffled. I am using the same beans same grind. In fact using the exact same grind it went from great one day to weak the next day.  I always run it for 15 - 16 secs to get the shot and that hasn't changed. Pressure and temperature appear fine. I cleaned the top of the top filter which was a little dirty but not seriously bad - no change. The coffee flow which is normally chocolate coloured to start with is just mid brown.

Machine does not stop after dispensing two shots of espresso


That kind of machine is pretty well engineered!Very solid and work on a basic deal.The problem could be just the simple on/off button.
The pump is controlled by the button and if the button don`t stop the machine still understanding you need more until you close the circuit.Sometimes coukld be also a loose wire.

In some way you are lucky because that machine have not electronic board so...less part.....less problem
