Step 1Use a scale to measure your dose of coffee and brewed liquid.
Step 2Distribute the coffee evenly to ensure the bed of coffee is flat.
Step 3Tamp down the bed of coffee with 10-15 kg of pressure. Be sure to tamp level. This is more important than the pressure.
Step 4Adjust your grind size to have the full beverage weight in approximately 27 seconds. Extraction time is controlled by the grind setting, so it is worth experimenting with this. As you grind finer, you increase extraction time.
Step 5For a more balanced cup, we like to give the espresso a quick stir to mix the layers before drinking. Enjoy!
