Is there a youtube video out there that people think defines a perfect espresso shot from a bottomless PF?  


This one looks pretty good to me

I don't know if it defines a good shot but it looked good, like most of mine do. What matters is how it tastes, not how long it takes or how pretty it is leaving the machine.

Great clip.  I'm looking forward to eventually purchasing a bottomless PF.  Does anybody know where I can purchase those shot glasses that have both 1 and 2 ounce lines??

Thanks,

EPNW has these

Click Here (www.espressoparts.com)

I have the square one myself.

Edit- Just noticed mines an older version that has a 2 oz line, also marked for single ristretto, single, double ristretto, then the 2 oz double. Wonder why they changed it up?

A good espresso shot should be tasted good, one can never know a good shot from its look.
So, don't try to find out the good shot from its look, but know the good shot by tasting.
