After this post I fully expect to try and log on only to find my password has mysteriously stopped working..... I've got to say it - I just dont like Espressos ! I find them overpowering, just too strong ! I do love coffee but its got to be a flat white, Americano or Cappuccino, am I a heathen ? Anyone else the same ?
Since upgrading my grinder (and finally getting it seasoned in) I'm getting pretty consistent results. When I dialled in my grinder I was weighing the grind, weighing the output and timing precisely to get the best shot i could. Same as I have been doing for years. Recently I've been getting a bit lazy. I'm not weighing the grind and I'm just doing it by look. If it looks to much I reduce the grind time, too little, increase it. I also get a good feel from the tamp as to whether it's half a gram under or over. Same with the output, not weighing it. Just tasting and adjusting the grind or shot time depending on taste. I've long been a believer of no fuss distribution. A couple of whacks and tamp, I believe is enough. The odd thing is since just ignoring all the things I've previously thought as necessary for consistency I've been getting some of my best coffee, consistently. Maybe it's just I'm finally getting a bit better at this, but do we sometime get so caught up on these weights and times we actually forget the most important thing, how it tastes?
