First post here, I just bought a Presso and it came with some Presso beans (off the website). I am just wondering if anyone has any experience with these beans and what they should taste like.
The first few Presso shots I made were poor, (rough grind, poor tamping) and resulted in something between a "gusher" and a proper shot, however when I mixed it with milk it tasted like something Id happily buy from a cafe.
However, after I fixed my technique a little and getting some crema with my shots, I have found that the shots arent strong enough to be taken with milk. Mixing the shot with half a cup of skim milk, I find it just overpowers the coffee flavour completely and there isnt enough bitterness.
Sorry in advance if this is a novice question. Im new to all this and my palette is used to second grade cafe coffee.
