Brew Ratio

1g of coffee : 2ml of espresso



Step 1:

Weigh 19 grams of coffee (this can vary depending on your machine). The grind size for espressos should be fine.


Step 2:

Using a tamper, apply even pressure directly on top of the coffee grounds to create a compact and flat surface.

Step 3:

Purge water through your espresso machine’s grouphead then gently load the portafilter.


Step 4:

Once the portafilter is in position, start your espresso machine and the timer simultaneously. Time your shot to brew for about 24-26 seconds. The final weight of your espresso should be about 2 times the weight of your coffee. 

We love espressos that are sweet with a lingering aftertaste. 

Note: If your shot flows too quickly, reduce your grind size. If it flows too slowly, use a coarser grind.
