Step by Step
Switch on your espresso machine & allow to heat up. This may take a few minutes. We recommend setting your machine to around 93 degrees.
Finely grind your wholebean coffee, we recommend 18g of coffee. Avoid grinding too finely as this will give you a more bitter taste profile. We are aiming for the coffee to flow through your machine at around 25-30 seconds, adjust & test your grind size accordingly. The finer the grind the slower the coffee will flow & the courser the grind the faster the coffee flow.
Twist and remove the portafilter from your Espresso Machine.
Pour your ground coffee into the portafilter and tamp. Ensure you tamp tightly to ensure an even brew. Brush off any excess coffee.
Place the portafilter back into the group head & start your espresso machine. Allow enough time for coffee extraction. You are aiming for 25-30 seconds for full extraction.
You’re now ready to serve or add your milk. Milk is best heated to 55-65 degrees & listen out for the slight ‘tearing’ sound whilst heating for the best pouring texture.
