Puddle left on top of portafilter was created by newbie
I have a new Gaggia Classic and a Rancilio Rocky grinder.

I used locally roasted beans = fresh.

I have the grinder and my tamping pressure pretty consistent to yield 2 oz in 22 secs. It turns out wonderful with nice crema.

However, when I remove the portafilter, on top of the grinds is a puddle of water.

Am I removing it too soon (that is, should it just drip for several minutes) or is this expected? I'm thinking it is not because in my local espresso shops their pucks look much drier with a short turn around.

The gaggia classic has the 3-way solenoid.

Tell me this: When you pull off the PF, does any air pressure escape? I should think not.

A little bit of slop is OK -
try waiting a minute and seeing what it looks like then.
