I agree... And if you ever look back you will see I have always pulled my shots short.Originally Posted by 47424D4D5A4B230 link=1258860379/0#0 date=1258860379
In a nut shell... Education and ease of training ( Opps TBM and through put..) is what I believe..
As you stated... Finer or up dosing or pulling short.. Remember is ya chasing $$$ any extra grinds has to be recovered.. Opps - Better product = more clients or return/repeat clients is not always factored in..
I have seen some 3 group systems set up for 2 groups for double shots and one for single.. But same grind and same tamp.. For me it would be the same PF basket and a shorter time... yes more beans, but a much better outcome and easy to manage the 3 min training the staff get... After all they all come with a certificate :D
Thus the issue between understanding good/great coffee Vs the general understanding that Mr and Mrs public have and expect....
