STEP 1 Use a scale to measure your dose of coffee and brewed liquid.
STEP Distribute the coffee evenly to ensure the bed of coffee is flat.
STEP 3 Tamp down the bed of coffee with tamper. Be sure to tamp evenly. This is more important than the pressure.
STEP Adjust 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 5 For a more balanced cup, we like to give the espresso a quick stir to mix the layers before drinking. Enjoy!
