1.) Remove the portafilter from the machine, wipe clean of any previous coffee grounds. Add 19-21g of Espresso ground coffee to the portafilter. Gently tap the portafilter to level out the coffee.
2.) Use the tamper, firmly press down evenly onto the espresso ground coffee in the portafilter, this creates a solid espresso puck.
3.) Prep the espresso machine by purging hot water through the group head, once completed turn and lock the portafilter.
4.) Engage the group head and pull the espresso shot, the entire extraction process should last 20-30 seconds. This yields roughly 1-1.5oz of espresso. If it takes too much longer or is pulling too slow, try a coarser grind. If it brews too quick, try a finer grind.
