What you'll need:
- For a double shot, 15-16g coffee in, 50-55ml of coffee out, extraction time 24-28 seconds.
- For single origin coffees you may wish to increase the dose slightly to 18g, then also cut short the extraction time at 25 seconds.
- For a more zingy acidic taste, try a ristretto. This is the same as step 1. but you need to stop the extraction after 18 seconds giving you approx. 35-40ml of coffee.
- If you fancy an extra special drink, try this with a ‘short’ or you could even add some cream or ice cream…
