I was at the local book store/espresso shop. Remember, the one with the 5
second pulls and top ups with frothy water? Well, I watched as someone
ordered a single and a double espresso. They ground, filled, leveled and
tamped (Thor tamper I might add), set the PF and pulled the shot for the
double. 5 seconds black goo, white watery foam next, wait for the dribble
to stop, dump it into the serving cup. Repeat for the other group for
the single. Back to the double, dripping about a minute, dump that into
the serving cup.
Ready.....WITHOUT emptying the PF or redosing, pulled another shot through
the grounds to make the double. And I wondered why I hated their "coffee".
Sigh, I really wanted to say something, and I would like to "help" them,
but I think it is just wasted effort. Maybe some anonymous literature
