the middle zone during extraction,
indicates the espresso will be extracted at
the ideal pressure.

The gauge needle, when positioned in the
lower zone during extraction, indicates
the espresso has been extracted with
insufficient pressure. This occurs when
the water flow through the ground coffee is
too fast and results in an under extracted
espresso that is watery and lacks crema
and flavour.
Causes for under extraction include the grind
being too coarse and/or insufficient coffee in
filter basket and/or under tamping.
oVEr ExtraCtEd zonE
The gauge needle, when positioned in the
upper zone during extraction, indicates the
espresso has been extracted with too much
pressure. This occurs when the water flow
through the ground coffee is too slow and
results in an over extracted espresso that
is very dark and bitter with a mottled and
uneven crema.
Causes for over extraction include the
grind being too fine and/or too much
ground coffee in filter basket.
