What you’ll need
- Espresso machine
- Espresso grinder
- Freshly ground coffee
- Filtered water
1g of coffee : 2ml of espresso
Weigh 19 grams of coffee (this can vary depending on your machine). The grind size for espressos should be fine.
Using a tamper, apply even pressure directly on top of the coffee grounds to create a compact and flat surface.
Purge water through your espresso machine’s grouphead then gently load the portafilter.
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.
