First naked triple:

Posted April 7, 2005 link

Looks like a good start!  You got what looks like good dose and distribution, so now try the triple ristretto.  (Grind a tad finer and don't be afraid to tamp a little harder too).  

Also, with the naked triple you can feel free to run shots over 25 seconds because it starts very slowly.  Sometimes on my ristretto i don't see flow for up to 10 seconds.  

THEN we want to see your work on the "Look out JonR" thread!!

And please, post some individual shots so we can see your work in all of it's glory! (I oftentimes have some difficulty making out what's going on with the composite pictures)

Thanks. You are quite right, the grind was too coarse. I am impressed! How did you know?

How did you know?

Posted April 7, 2005 link

well, I have seen a few naked shots before {:^)  

You can tell alot by the color, texture, and depth of the cone.  I can almost tell what pressure I'm running on my machine by looking.  My pic above was at just over 9.5 bar (at the start of a ristretto) and you can see how dark and goopy it is.
