Prepare & Use
Use around 7-12g per espresso shot - depending on personal taste preference. Watch the extraction - it should take a moment or two after pressing the button for the flow to start. Flow should be slow and steady - not a drip-drip, and a full shot should take between 18 and 25 seconds to pour adjust one fluid ounce (about 28ml).
The flow should look like honey from a spoon. Stop the extraction when you get the required volume or just as you start to see a blonding in the crema.
If the flow was too fast (espresso tastes thin and sharp) grind finer, or coarser. If the time was too long or the shot tasted bitter or harsh.
You can also experiment with the fill and tamp pressure - all of these aspects will affect the flavour of the coffee significantly.
Make sure your coffee maker is clean as coffee oil build-up will taste stale.
