  • Had my first ristretto today

    My goodness! I was not prepared for it and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I almost choked, it was that powerful. The guy at Stassi, made me one on the house, and I had to try it a second time, however now I was prepared.

    I never tasted coffee with such raw power, and it was amazing. From now on I will have ristretto shots in all my coffee.

    Funny fact, the barista at BBB did not know what a ristretto was, neither did I this morning.

      I would have thought that maybe the barista was pulling one on me, but the barista did get another staff member and neither knew.

      I was more surprised as I then had to explain what a ristretto was, and then made myself look like an idiot when I mentioned it was like a flat white. :-[

        You should try a triple shot!!

        Once i was in a rush and while i was sniffing the coffee (in an acf cup) before the gulp, i accidentally snorted the crema through my nose.

        Dangerous but fun way to get caffeinated ;D

          What do you mean a triple???? Do they pull a double rez then dump one side of another shot in your cup?

              i think yes.
              once, its a double + single.

              on another, less busy occasion, triple groupheads, 3 portafilters, single rez each, all into one cup :3

                Given many of the normal shots ive seen them pull would struggle to reach the 20ml mark, id love to see just how restricted a BBB ristretto was.

                  True. Its not the norm in Brisbane to pull short shots.
                  It is however in the places I frequent just surprised they didnt know
