 What are you using for a grinder? As Mike said it is much more important 
then your machine. With a good espresso grinder you shouldn't have to beat 
yourself up over distribution. I use a Major & a K10WBC for espresso & all I 
do is dose a fairly centered pile into the basket, do a light nutating tamp 
& pull the shot. No stirring or excess leveling required.
