How to Make An Espresso


  • Espresso Machine
  • Coffee Grinder
  • Glass or Cup
  • 1 Espresso Shot



Firstly, you will need to ‘Purge’ the machine by running hot water through the head into the portafilter, once this is done, wipe clean.

Grind & Tamp

Turn on the hopper and grind between 18 - 22g of freshly roaster beans and tap the portafilter to settle the grounded coffee before tamping. Ensure you tamp on a level surface with a consistent amount of pressure.

Espresso Extraction

Firmly place the portafilter into the group head and warm your cup or glass before starting. Hit the start button and press the 2 cup button and you will see an espresso flow that imitates warm honey.

Refining the Taste

You may need to adjust the recipe depending on the type of beans/roast you are using but always aim for 1 fl. Oz or 20-30mls of liquid per cup in about 25-30 seconds.
