Grinding and compacting
The grinding and compacting of the beans is a vital stage of the process to ensure you get a high quality barista tasting coffee. Why is that? If the beans are not ground enough or not compacted tight enough then when the boiled water goes through them to make the coffee shot the water will run through the coffee grind too fast resulting in a very weak watery tasting coffee. On the other hand, if the beans are ground too fine or compacted too tight then the water will be unable to pass through the grinds properly thus leaving you with a burnt coffee.
That is why after extensive research and testing the Porta Presso comes pre-set on the optimal settings. Alternatively, for you coffee experts out there, you can adjust the functions of the Porta Presso at your will.
