Jumping the gun, pulling a fresh shot of espresso

Jumping the gun, pulling a fresh shot of espresso




I’m pretty predictable. I couldn’t wait 2-3 days to try the new batch of coffee I roasted yesterday. These are some photos of me making a shot of espresso. It was a bit overroasted, yet grassy at the same time! This points to my temperature being a bit high and my guess is the grassy taste will mellow out in a few days. It’s still quite good, and very satisfying to have made from scratch. If only I could grow a few coffee trees in our back yard…

    Surely you now need the new gizmo that de-gasses freshly-roasted beans for more immediate gratification. A bell jar and vacuum rig should do nicely.

    I have a couple 2-3 month old seedlings, germinated a la http://www.coffeeresearch.org/coffee/homegrowing.htm

    Eric, that’s a really interesting idea. I think you’ve just given me an excuse to get a bell jar to test the theory, thanks!
