Subject: Extraction Time
 

I recently purchased the LM GS3 ..... What a great machine! Having said that I have loads to learn before I will have the skills to extract consistently high quality shots. I am currently trying to learn working with the triple filter ... Does anyone have experience with this and what extraction time to use for a triple?

Thanks for any input .... Sepp

Congrats on the machine!  Extraction time is the same as any other.  I still aim for 25-30 sec for a 2 oz triple shot.  Use the pressure profiling to get the most out of your shot.  Slow pre-infuse then at about 15 sec up to full pressure and at maybe 25 sec slow the shot down before it starts blonding.  Here is a video Slayers coffee posted on Youtube explaining this technique. Click

If you are looking to brew a 3 oz triple then 30-45 sec would be a good time.

is this your first espresso setup, or you've used other gear?  I think the answer will have a lot of influence on what kind of advice you need.

Burner .... Thanks for the tips and ref to Slayers video ... Right on the point and, as I have the LM Paddle version I can play with pre-infusion time. Too bad the LM does not have pre-infusion pressure control but the triple shots came really well
