Pro Tip: Espresso is difficult. Start with the know 18.5 g and overall shot volume of 37g and fine tune your grind to achieve desired results. Each coffee most likely needs some adjustment to start.

Pro Tip 2: Espresso properties diminish quickly. If making an americano, fill your cup with the hot water first and pull shot directly into your cup. This helps preserve the crema and will give your americano a nice creamy texture.
