  • Shot Size - 290ml Mug

    Howdy,

    I would like to make flat whites using 290ml mugs. Can anyone advise roughly what shot size would be needed for this size mug?

    Cheers.

    Depends on how strong you like your coffee

    For me at 290ml I would probably go for a double (60ml of espresso)

      yeah, id be looking at close to a double myself. A single shot is Ok for about 200ml, maybe a double ristretto would suit it well?

          Since I put a double ristretto in a 90-100 ml latté, I suggest 6 shots for a 290 ml drink.

                How about you try it this way?:

                Pull your shot(s) into your mug.

                Add whatever sugar (or not) you feel you might want.

                Stretch the milk.

                Add the milk 50 ml or so at a time and taste as you go.

                One of the things that surprised me was how LITTLE milk I wanted when I got the ristretto shots working well. Whenever I have guests I urge them to try their latté/flat white "short" to start. Very few take extra milk beyond the 100 ml.

                And remember--Its all about what tastes good to you.

                  I gave a 290ml sized beverage a double ristretto shot with a 21 gram basket (more like a triple ristretto haha).

                      My family enjoy a 60ml double shot in a 300ml latte...

                      seems to be a typical brew...if I feel like a weaker coffee I will share the shot with another cup.

                        Definitely at least a good 60ML double for me.

                          Looking at this from the other direction, what would be the maximum cup size to use with a double synesso basket to make 2 lattes/flat whites at the same time.

                          I currently use a large 340ml cup with a double shot but there are times when I need 2 in a hurry.

                            This really depends upon the person. For me - I dont like a single in anything larger than 160mL cup and Ill use a a double rist. in a 210mL glass.
