How do you make the best espresso?

Single Origin Espresso

Espresso is a brewing method that requires time and experience to make a consistently good drink. A traditional Espresso is a coffee made with an espresso machine that is 30ml in volume and extracted around 30 seconds. Always make sure you invest in a decent espresso grinder, your coffee is only as good as your espresso grinder. This is the recommended espresso recipe 20grams of ground coffee try to use an 18 or 20 grams VST basket Brew time 25 seconds +- 5 seconds Water temperature 02C water pressure 7.5-9 bar Everything seems so easy, but the actual hardest part is adjusting the grind and adjusting this formula to extract the best espresso you can.   Remember to always freshly grind your coffee, distribute evenly the coffee within the coffee basket and Tamp down with around 10-15 kg of pressure. Tamp as evenly as possible, a tilted tamp would result in uneven extraction.   Also make sure you purchase coffee beans that you know when they are roasted.  Purchase from local coffee roasters and make sure they are consumed as quick as possible after the packet is opened. When you know how to properly make the espresso, the next step is making lattes or cappuccinos.

  The finca, also called Finca Nuguo, is situated between 1.750 and 1.950 mts in the area of Jurutungo, Renacimiento, in the province of Chiriqui of Panama. Nestled between a natural rainforest reserve on the one side and the border of Costa Rica on the other side.
The location and environment of the finca is a very challenging one, with cold temperatures at night, lots of wind and rainfall. And even so, this very visionary, passionate and engaged person, Jose, managed to produce some incredible cups of coffee. Or, if we quote Jose, it is because of those rough conditions that the coffee production results in low productivity but an intense flavour. He says that the cold wind and rain that come from the Atlantic through the mountains dividing Panama play an important role in the taste of the coffee from Nuguo.
  巴拿馬 Finca Nuguo 藝伎的生在地Finca Nuguo上已經有各種各樣的鳥類,但在未來幾年裡,Jose 和 Aileene 想要投入更多的時間和精力來保護這種生物多樣性,甚至投資於生態旅遊發展。 Finca,也稱為 Finca Nuguo,位於奇里基省雷納西米恩托 Jurutungo 地區 1.750 至 1.950 米之間,坐落在一側的天然雨林保護區和另一側的哥斯達黎加邊界之間。 finca 的位置和環境非常具有挑戰性,夜間溫度低,風大,雨量大。即便如此,這位非常有遠見、熱情和敬業的人 Jose 還是設法製作了一些令人難以置信的咖啡。或者,如果我們引用何塞的話,正是由於這些惡劣的條件,咖啡的生產效率低下,但風味濃郁。他說,來自大西洋穿過巴拿馬山脈的寒冷風雨對努果咖啡的味道起著重要作用。   杯測風味:茉莉花、橙花、覆盆子、荔枝、多汁茶像
