Warm up the machine, portafilter, and glassware.

Set, grind, and dose. 28 grams. Triple basket in a “naked” portafilter. Free trade, organic, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe from Supreme Bean. Tastes like blueberries!

“Tamp” the coffee down. 30-40 pounds of pressure. Polish. Use a bathroom scale for practice.

Lock and load, baby. PID set to 202.5 degrees.

WE HAVE IGNITION! (5mb QT Movie) Note how the glass fills with crema. Yes, it’s a long pour… what can I say, it tastes good. 🙂

What are you waiting for? Enjoy it already!
