Grinding setting is one simple operation but requires bit patience:

  1. Turn on your grinder and continue setting to fine while burrs are spinning, you stop when you hear metal to metal touch sound(burrs maximally closed finest grinding)
  2. From that point go back quarter of revolution and mark the spot where you stopped with marker to body of grinder and setting plate with one line
  3. Grind little amount of coffee only to fill one sector of dosser than test it at your machine (if it leaks too fast and with yellow color of cream you should go to more fine>><< if it does not leak from the filter holder or it leaks very slow you go to in opposite way.
  4. You test grinding few times bit after each reset of plate grind little amount and take that in one other pot (that will provide to have pure new granulation)
  5. After setting measure the grounded coffee that comes out from dosser it should be about 7 grams, better measurement you can get if you measure 10 doses in one place because you don't get never same amount from 6 sectors of dosser.

PS: the pump pressure of coffee machine should be from 8 to 10 bar and steam pressure should be from 1.1 to 1.5 bar> depends on type of coffees you use.

Set grinding and extraction on ambiente


Grinder setting will not just affect extraction time, it will also affect taste. A fine grind will be slower but have a creamier look, a coarse grind will speed up delivery. From whatever setting you are on look at the result, you are after the good creamy top of a good expresso. only adjust one step at a time, and check a few cups before any more adjustment. You do not want it so slow that you have to wait ages, So go for coarsest grind with a creamy head. Overtime you might have to readjust due to wear, Select only one hopper at a time to adjust, Do not try and adjust when blending, one side at a time until both give same result and speed for same coffee, Then you can go onto blending.

Hi
Don't really like the rinse cycle because it waste water. If you want to rinse the brew unit just push the "scoop button" and not put any coffee in, then push the large coffee. Does the same thing but doesn't use as much water.
Dry grounds is one of my tips.

When I just have water in the portafilter it runs through fine. When I put the expresso in it clogs and expresso will not flow through.


No solution here. Utopia directions say to only use MEDIUM (drip) grind. Ain't it awful? I prefer ultra fine grind, frankly muddy coffee.Deb

Vev Vigano Carioca Nero Espresso Maker..what kind of grind to use


Use fine grind for espresso, darker roasted bean blend on Italian roast style are better, they are stronger and oily, perfect for expresso machines like this.

One of the best available here is this: Lavazza Qualita Rossa Ground Coffee, great brew on Moka style espresso machines.

My understanding is that this is normal with units like the ESP8XL which use a pressurized portafilter. Non-pressurized units will leave a dry puck of used grounds.
