  1. The total brewing time is directly linked to the grind size so we recommend to grind your coffee fine first with your usual espresso grind setting while aiming for the target time we recommended as a benchmark and then fine-tune later on how coarse or how fine you need to adjust your grind size to achieve the recommended target extraction time and the taste that works for you.
  2. Distribute ground coffee evenly and then give it a good medium force tamp.
  3. Tare your scale and start the extraction. Be mindful in observing the time and volume altogether.
  4. Once the desired parameters have been reached, you can remove your cup and gently stir your espresso with a teaspoon for 5 times. If it is extracting below the recommended time, grind finer. If it is extracting more than the recommended time, grind coarser until you hit the recommended parameters of recipe and most importantly your preferred taste profile for your espresso.
  5. If the result of your espresso is intense, you can extend your ratio to 1g: 3ml. If the result is too bright for your liking, you can grind finer to extract longer. If the result is bitter and the extraction rate is fast, grind coarser to achieve a faster extraction time.
  6. Enjoy your coffee and enjoy the process of brewing.

Always remember, the best coffee is the coffee that suits you. Cheers and keep brewing!
