Crema is not Being Produced - Espresso Machine

Possible Solutions

  • Coffee is ground too coarsely. Use slightly finer grind.
  • Coffee tamped too softly. Use a slightly firmer tamp between 30-40 lb or 15-20 kg of force.
  • A single wall filter basket might have been used with pre-ground coffee.
