  • Can you match this single shot extraction?...

    ...because, I really dont think I can!.

    Check out the wonderful single shot extraction, by this Italian Barista in this short tutorial video.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Hb-tGj2VPE

    The relevant section is approximately from 1:20 to 1:50

    I have a Mazzer Super Jolly, Rancilio Silvia, custom fit tamper, and a Behmor home roaster, and around 10 years experience.
    And, although I generally make what I regard as very good to excellent espressos, I simply can not get anything like this full crema extraction from a single shot basket. (7.5g, apparently)

    Im sure the fault is not my grind, freshness of beans, or tamping.

    My question is simple, Can you make shots from a single shot basket like this with an automatic domestic machine?, such as the Rancilio Silvia in my case.

    Any wisdom shared, or frustrations vented would be welcomed

        My morning shot will be a single from LM basket with small tamper that fits into the smaller basket.
        but never got that thick red brown crema since temperature stability during the shot is a big issue for gaggia....
        PIDd silvia would not have 3[ch8451] drop !

          I am guessing it is an italian vid/italian coffee.

          Therefore my assumption would be the use of robusta in the coffee.

          It can produce amazing crema.

            Yikes! Too fast, too long and amazing well produced crema from high Robusta content.
