Topic: Source for a double shot espresso glass (8 msgs / 133 lines)
1) From: Mark Neuhausen
I currently use two stainless steel single shot "cups" and leave a lot of
the best crema on the sides of the cups.  Can someone please point me to a
good source for a double shot glass that I can use?
I have an old bartenders double shot glass, but somehow I don't think the
reading of "no survivors" is appropriate when serving someone my coffee.

Why would you not want to serve it in espresso cups?
I usually drink americanos and what I do is to brew right into the full 
sized cup. I first measured how high along the sides 2 oz, went and bent a 
piece of wire over the edge down to that point. When I pour, I stop when 
the espresso reaches that point. I then fill the cup up with the hot 
water...No crema wasted..

LOL!  It would depend on which installment of Survivor the shot glass is.
I'm trying to complete the entire set.  ;)    Survivor: The Amazon starts in
3 weeks.  It is set in the rainforest of Brazil, but not where they grow
coffee.  (now I'm on topic!)  Dan

I do the same thing, Angelo, except I stop the pour when the stream matches
the color of my maple topped counter.
Oh,  I got my 1.5oz. shot glasses at GFS - Gordon Food Service.  Cheap, and
had a mark for 1 oz.

I started out using the sl90's automatic measuring to pull my shots and 
americanos, but now, I have it on program 0, meaning continuous, and can 
tell when it is properly extracted by the sound of the liquid pouring into 
the mug.  There is a distinctly frothy sound when you are getting the right 
crema, and the moment the extraction becomes wrong, the sound changes markedly.
I had wondered about this, because my next espresso machine may be a Giotto 
and it does not have the automatic measuring of the Solis.  Now, I know 
that I can pull a good shot strictly by sound.
Not to say the sl90 is a flabby machine, I get good espresso from it, but 
being as into coffee as I am into good music, one can never be satisfied 
with any but the best one can afford...and then a bit.
Besides, my CSA status might diminish if I did not aspire to a commercial 
grade machine.

Actually I can pull a good shot from my Krups Gusto by sound also! Maybe 
I should PID it. ;-)
