So i'm having an issue with my oscar, and I came across this thread.... It doesn't solve my issue but this particular post brings up a question. It looks like you pulled a 2 oz shot in 17-18 seconds... I've seen that the goal is closer to 30 seconds. Have I been doing it wrong all this time? Or are there benefits to pulling shots in a shorter time-frame to get "longer cones" with naked portafilters??
I just pulled the largest naked filter cone that I have ever done. It looked like the cones I have seen on lever espresso porn shots. I don't know if it was a fluke but it was really pretty and the coffee tastes great.
