Brew Steps

  1. Step 01

    Rinse your grouphead with hot water!

  2. Step 02

    Weigh your portafilter

  3. Step 03

    Finely grind 18g of coffee for a double shot and add to portafilter.

  4. Step 04

    Distribute the coffee with your fingers so it is evenly spaced in the portafilter.

  5. Step 05

    Tamp your coffee using about 30lbs of pressure, and polish the top of it by spinning your tamper.

  6. Step 06

    Insert your portafilter and begin your shot immediately. Your ideal shot should be around 27 seconds long. Target a wet weight of 36g.

Pro Tip:

Every machine is different. You may have to play with grind size and weight to find the shot that works the best for you. Pouring fast? Try a finer grind. Pouring slow? Make it slightly coarser. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it once you get that perfect, smooth shot of espresso topped with silky crema!
