Pulling the perfect shot of espresso is an art. There are many factors that go into preparing the shot, including grinding whole bean coffee at the correct setting.
When brewing with your Capresso EC PRO, follow these tips for a bold and delicious espresso:
- Use a Capresso Infinity Burr Grinder to obtain the correct grind size.
- If using the Double Spout Filter with 2-cup sieve, use the “Fine” setting. Set indicator dot to the 1st or 2nd Fine positions. Using the 2-cup sieve allows the user flexibility in the grind size.
- If using the Bottomless Filter with bottomless sieve, use the “Extra Fine” setting. Set the indicator dot to the 2nd or 3rd Extra Fine position. The bottomless sieve requires a precise grind size and may need to be adjusted a few times to achieve the perfect brew.
Grind size is critically important, especially when using the Bottomless Filter. Different types of coffee may require a slight adjustment to the grind size. Coffee that is fresh compared to coffee that has been left out will also require adjustments. A conical burr grinder, such as the Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinder, can make these fine adjustments.
