I drink straight when dialling in, and then most of them are used to make a small flat white. I much prefer black coffee to be filtered, and for me part of the joy of home espresso is getting to have those "cafe quality" (heh) drinks with properly textured milk.

My split is 75% v60, 25% espresso based.

I do mostly Americanos for me and flat whites for her.

I currently prefer the richness of a short Americano over a brewed coffee.

I don't know if i like Espresso or not!

Stir, let it cool down and drink. I sometimes will pull a flat white (150ml cup with 45-54g of espresso) in the mornings, but I probably drink 60-80% straight espresso. Depends on the bean, preference and rustiness of my latte art skills.

Stir and drink, about half the time.

In the afternoon I tend to either make an Americano or attempt a latte, unless it's hot, then it's over ice and topped with milk.

Between two of us, we’re currently getting  through about 5x15g doubles a day, three of which go into cappuccinos or lattes with the balance being straight espresso. On top of this, I’ll usually get through another 3x16g V60s.

Double shot INDIAN MALABAR straight into hot water; no milk, no sugar, just pure coffee nirvana.
