Usually I do latte if doing espresso so the fineness of the shot is a
bit hidden/diluted. I have no comparison to what a great shot should be.
I did a 10 second pull (oops) but it wasn't bad (or was it). Lots of
flavor. I grinded finer, as fine as my whirley would go (rocky arrives
Monday) and tamped with my makeshift tamper as hard as I could and got a
25 second pull. First taste, wow, lots of flavors but, I suspect it is

2 days rest, full city
I am guessing this is not the best bean for espresso, not the best
grind, it could rest another day and should be roasted a bit darker.? I
roasted it for drip though and it is what I had. My KRUPS 964 (any input
on this machine anyone? Link below) gives me 196deg when measuring the
water coming out of the basket with no grounds.
