‘A Pretty Good Shot’
Home Espresso Tips to Beginners
Home espresso machines offer inexpensive drinks without leaving the house or office. Once your have got your espresso machine up and running you will undoubtedly want to start pulling shots, but for someone who has not prepared espresso in the past this can be a daunting task. Professional baristas at high-end cafes undergo hours of professional training to perfect their craft and pull perfect espresso shots.This is not a guide to pulling the perfect espresso shot but is instead a guide for the beginner to pull a pretty good shot, which they can then perfect over time. I will be providing you with tips about both automatic and super-automatic machines, since these are most common. So, what is the difference between the two? Super-automatic machines have a built in grinder that doses and tamps the espresso shot mechanically while semi-automatic machines require the user to grind the coffee on a separate grinder and use a tamper to compact the coffee into the portafilter basket before inserting it into the grouphead to brew.
