Topic: Making espresso into a clear glass (2 msgs / 36 lines)
1) From: Mark Neuhausen
Based on the excellent suggestions from this group, I now make my espresso
directly into my drinking cup.  But, I did find a 4 oz. marked measuring
glass for $1.99 at the grocery store and for the first time for me,
extracted directly into a glass.  I got so excited seeing the crema foam in
the cup and the liquid coffee gradually form at the bottom.  28 seconds, 2.5
oz.  I recommend for anyone with an espresso maker who has not extracted
directly into a glass to try it.  I had read about it numerous times on this
site, but seeing is really a whole additional sensory experience.

Clear demitasses are great for introducing folks to homeroast coffee. If I'm 
pulling a shot for a guest, they're usually asking questions about the 
machine and process. When I'm about ready to push the button, I list a few 
attributes one should look for in a shot; time, volume, consistency, and 
just as the pour begins, the minimum 1/8" of crema guideline that I've heard 
non-homeroasters use.
Behold, the Guinness Effect!
It's a real shock to some that coffee grounds could produce such a thing, 
and a memorable intro to homeroasted coffee.
