PREPARATION

Water
An espresso tastes only as good as the water you start with. Soft water works great with coffee and really brings out its aroma. If you live in a hard water area a simple carbon filter will help no end.

Grind
The grind is just as important as the coffee. Ensure that the grind is fine enough to allow the water to pour through the coffee in 19 seconds. Too coarse a grind and you are missing out on the essential aromatics, too fine a grind and you get a sharp over extracted taste.

Dose
For a double shot use around 14-18 grams of coffee. As you add more coffee your espresso will increase in both body and intensity.

Tamp
Compacting the ground coffee restricts the flow of water, forcing the solids in the coffee to be extracted into the water. Apply a fairly firm, even tamp – don’t be tempted to screw the tamp like you see in some coffee shops.

Temperature
90-95 degrees C is ideal for preparing coffee. Lower temperatures draw out more brightness in the coffee whilst higher temperatures give you a more roasty note.
