Both shots came out fast. Both had good crema. But both were bitter and slightly sour. Right after i made these videos, i cranked the built in grinder up to setting 16 (max fine). By doing this, i was able to pull a nice 26 second shot. I never actually tasted this shot plain because i made it into a cappuccino. This was with the Mexican chiapas beans. This cappuccino was great. Best one that i have made with this machine. I don't know if it was because i changed the grind or if it was the beans. I will keep experimenting with the hario although it did take me about 5 minutes of grinding to get 15 grams. Did i do anything wrong in these videos? Any suggestions? I will try to post another video tomorrow and pull a shot like i just did.
+1 sorry if i misled. Everyone needs to find their own techniques. I lean to harder by habit. Espresso can be hard to get down but its also very simple. If your still having trouble I suggest stepping back taking a breath n brew by taste, have fun doing it.
