Work Your Groups Equally

Product consistency is at the forefront of a successful espresso business. To help maintain uniformity in the taste of your beverages remember to brew from all the groups on your espresso machine equally. As your machine ages, your components  wear with use. You will eventually need to shim your machine's group gaskets to maintain the correct alignment/spacing of your porta'filters.  Shimming effects your brewing and therefore the taste of your coffee. If you are shimming only one group, the taste of your coffee on that group will be different than on the other group or groups.  Have questions or need additional assistance?
