  • Triple Shot? Whats the point?

    Ok so this is out of a movie (swordfish) but he asks for a triple shot coffee!
    Is there any point and what difference does it make?
    If you had to make a triple shot would you make 3 separate grinds?

    I would say that is a double shot (double basket) followed by a single shot, extra strong coffee.

      You can get 21g triples that will fit under some commercial machines, plus if you live in the US and drink 16-24 oz buckets of muck from $tirbucks you need triples :P

        A triple basket came with my bottomless group handle; it wont fit in an uncut handle.

        Triple shot? Easy!

                All within the 25-30 second time frame too. Thatd be a pretty awesome stream of espresso exiting the PF Spout(s)...

                  TG the reason I ask is that I use pretty close to a triple basket and am not getting a (quality) 90mls in 30 sec from the puck. If you are I would love to know what I can do to achieve your results.

                    moto, we used to have a ECM Michealangelo that had triple baskets which we had 28gms in, and 90ml in 30 sec was beautiful. Are you sure the basket is triple and not just a deep double? how many grams of coffee are you getting into it?

                      Depends on your version of triple I would consider 28g to be a quadruple (mine is a little 21g) so I would expect you would be right to push 90ml out of that much coffee. Where can you get 28 g baskets?

                        I only use my triple for making iced coffees and dont mind if its not a "perfect" pour so havent measured precisely.
                        My answer was as it was because I believe that if you stick to the the principles and adjust grind and dose there should be no reason why its not possible.

                        Pioneer Roasters reply appears to back me up.

                          If you do the maths, 28gm is only 9gm per 30ml which to me is a good single dose.

                          I got the baskets from ECA when they were doing the ECM machines. I would hope they still have some.

                            TG just talking from my experience which is not being able to get any more than 60mls from my basket (21g), I have played with many variables including dose, tamp, grind, pressure, and temperature. I was interested because if I could get a good shot out of a bigger basket I would be able to speed up service for my 16 oz strong coffee drinkers (as well as lowering costs a little 28g instead of 42g).
