Pulling an Espresso Shot
- Grinder with espresso setting
- Portafilter (standard or bottomless)
- Portafilter Basket
- Espresso Machine
- Scale and Timer
YIELD: 30g (+/-)
EXTRACTION: 0:30 (+/-)
Dose coffee into portafilter.
Double check dose by weighing.
Distribute until bed of coffee is as even as possible to promote even extraction and prevent channeling.
Tamp as evenly as possible to ensure a flat, even bed; 30lbs of pressure is ideal for consistency and to prevent channeling.
Insert portafilter into espresso machine, place mug on scale, and start pulling shot.
Weigh shot during extraction, stop shot at 30g of weight, within the window of 0:30 seconds of extraction. Enjoy.
