HOW TO ENJOY: ESPRESSO
Set your grinder to ensure the following;
Use 18 - 19 grams per shot
There is a 3 - 5 second delay before the shot starts to pour from the porter filter
The shot should pour as if defying gravity. It will look like thin dark shoelace. When it starts to lighten in colour, the extraction is complete.
Look at the shot of espresso, it should have two or three shades of brown within the crema (Often referred to as Tiger stripes)
The shot should take between 20- 25 seconds
