How To Make World Class Espresso in 42 Words

There can be a lot of hype in espresso because it’s rich in history, flavor and accessories you can buy.  So we wanted to condense the best advice down to just 42 words.  Here goes:

“Fifteen to 18 grams of craft espresso roasted within the past 7 days, ground fine, tamped with 20 pounds pressure with an even twist, pulled under 9 bars of pressure for 23-26 seconds, yielding 1.0-1.5 ounces, consumed before it cools.”

Follow these steps and you’ll reach coffee nirvana.

Everything else is commentary.

Or an unnecessary accessory.
