Espresso, home

Well, I've kind of lost count of how many espressi have gone down the gullet today. But I'm experimenting: the temperature surfing stuff I was getting into earlier in the week, combined with some tips from Jesse Dancing Goat yesterday, and I can feel that I'm getting closer to espresso nirvana here. Mainly, my tamping is getting better. This results in a more even puck, and so less chance of the water finding a path of less resistance. As a result, the pulls are getting slower. So today I'm grinding progressively coarser, and watching the results. Like I said: getting closer. Might move back to the single basket soon too.
