Breville Barista - Double shot volume?
So, if the established shot size for a 'standard' (i.e. 58mm) basket is 30ml (or, 60ml for a double), what shot size should I looking to be pulling from a the Baristas 53mm basket? Obviously will not hold as much coffee (max 18gm, maybe...?)
Apologies if I'm getting any of the above info incorrect.
Thanks in advance
from an 18g dose? whatever volume 36g-54g ends up being.
Use a set of scales to determine your dose in the basket and then use a ratio to determine the yield you should be getting in the cup. Woodhouse is suggesting a ratio of 1:2 - 1:3, I would suggest somewhere around that, even slightly less than 1:2 might be ok but go by taste.
