How long does your shot prep take you

Recommended Posts

 

Takes me nearly that long to prepare the grinds weighing beans in. About 15sec grinding but set to 20sec as the extra 5 secs gets rid of the last bits of bean, 3 uses of the brush and a spin up to get the last bit out. Levelling tool, tamp polish, tamp and polish in a slightly different way. :) Done while the DB is heating up. Flush DB, pull shot. flush again and run water in while I swill the portafilter. It wont run water in and pull the shot at the same time so that probably adds close to a min.

 

Other grinder has the hopper on. With the beans that are in it 7.4sec gives a bit over 15g so adjust on the scales and tamp etc the same way. Other types of beans could double the grind time.

 

;) Why work this way - Holy Grail - all shots out the same when timed but I also mess around sometimes to see how much that can change before I notice a different taste.

It ain't all about speed. For me, part of the enjoyment is taking time out of my day to slow down and take my time to prepare a nice coffee. The process is as important as the drink for me.

The point is, you work within the confines of both your equipment, and your outlook. I was not rushing by any means. I could have easily trimmed seconds off here of there. I do not have to add water, stir the grind or fanny on in any way. Clunk click, and away you go.....and I bet, allowing for your own tastebuds, is as good as anything anyone else can produce

You may need to try grinding a bit coarser Dave! Unless you're running some insane low pressure profile on that Vesuvius! Or you've been sorting coffee particles with a magnifying glass and a pair of tweezers instead of a Kruve sieve.
