Topic: "long" shot tip (23 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
If you have a PID'd espresso machine likely stop reading! But for those of
us with machines like a stock Miss Silvia this may apply. For a "cup of
coffee" my standard has been a 5+5 Americano: 5oz double shot pulled in
25sec plus 5oz hot water. The pull pushes/exceeds the limit for Miss Silvia
to maintain temp through the shot. Lately I've started the shot and 5sec
into the pull flipped on the steam switch to "manually" turn on the heater
leaving the steam switch on for 10sec (to the 15sec point) then turning it
off. The heater usually then comes on, meaning temp going low, right at the
very end of the 5oz pull. Seems to have improved the cup slightly.
Similar method might be tried for the even smaller boiler machines out
there. Just a thought!
