Espresso is the only method that makes coffee with a pressure pump.
When making coffee with an espresso machine, the water temperature is kept below the boiling level, which prevents coffee from burning.
Lungo or ristretto, espresso is the king of coffee.
Burr Coffee Grinder
Demitasse Cup (~70 ml)
17-19 grams (for 2 single espressos)
Grind 17-19 grams of coffee in the filter basket (or dose according to your filter basket size).
Distribute the coffee equally in the filter basket and then tamp, just enough to seal the coffee in. The goal is a compact, smooth, level surface.
Position the portafilter in the grouphead and start the extraction immediately.
Extraction completion ~ 25-30’’. If not, adjust the grind size.
Serve the coffee.
