Posted Sun Nov 3, 2013, 4:21pm Subject: Do i need to change my grind for a single from usual double shot grind?
Hi guys, So i've been playing with my gaggia xd trying to program the buttons on the front for when im feeling lazy i can just press go and forget. I've got my grind right for a nice double shot espresso of 2oz in about 25 seconds. However when i used the single basket for the first time today i put 8g of coffee in the same grind as my double shot and i got a one ounce extraction in around 15 seconds... Is this normal? Should i have to grind finer for my singles? Thanks
