Here is a guide on how to brew our amazing espresso at home – just like you get it in our stores.
Clean the portafilter with a dry cloth making sure no old coffee grounds are left.
Grind 18 grams of coffee on the espresso setting (1 on the 1-5 scale). Or the dose that you prefer for your own recipe.
Make an even bed by gently knocking the side of the portafilter with your hand. Do not use your tamper to do this as it will dent both your portafilter and tamper. Firmly tamp the coffee so it forms in to a puck.
Insert portafilter and ensure it is seated tightly in the grouphead. Start the brew and let it run with an extraction time between 25-30 seconds. Target weight of the espresso is 36 grams. Our recipe is 18g of coffee grounds = 36g of espresso.
