30 seconds extraction? I always worked to a max of 25 seconds...

I do have a pod (Nespresso) machine. It's great for quick fix because there's not a lot to do - the coffee is not bad either.
I do have a pressure pump espresso machine, five years old, which does a good brew. I extract a demi tasse in about 25 seconds. That's the time to do it right. That's what I was talking about.

Back on this topic... I think there's some misconception about "extraction".
When I read about coffee I learned about 25 to 30 secondsfor extraction time, and about two minutes to drink it.
I've never heard of "30 seconds after grinding rule".
Also, I do have a Nespresso machine, but I can control the extraction time. With a demitasse I can get a good espresso in 25 seconds for a single shot. It works really well.
