Some roaster’s pods are not tamped in the same way, in order to make a reference test, try to make a coffee with a pod with the E.S.E. logo.
If after having used the right pod, your coffee is still brewed too quickly, we recommend to use an « Intense portafilter », which slows down the extraction of the coffee.
