Start with the right beans. Espresso beans have very specific traits that will create the right taste and richness for this unique brew.
Using an espresso grinder, grind the beans down to the size of a grain of salt, and fill the filter cup loosely.
Use the tamper to press the coffee down into the filter cup. This is where the grind is important – if it’s too fine and you tamp it too hard, the water won’t properly penetrate and extract the coffee.
Use a proper “demitasse” cup to serve your espresso - a conically shaped, thick porcelain, heated cup is best. The conical shape helps to ease the espresso into the cup forming a better “crema.”
Brew the espresso. The proper espresso is poured “short” – at about 1 ½ ounces. This is ideal for texture, taste, and mouth feel.
If brewed properly, the crema will be thick enough to support a teaspoon of sugar for 5 seconds – and the thick, heated cup will keep the temperature of the shot just right. Enjoy the perfect espresso!
