Hello everyone how are you!?
I just wanted to share my latest experience with Espresso! Does anyone here suffer depression or some kind of psychological illness? If so I strongly advise hitting up Espresso in the morning sun! It is an amazing thing, I had a rain injury and I will admit I get very lonely and down. An espresso has never one failed to turn my emotions to a positive path. It just makes you happy and so very content! Learning to forget sugar and milk was hard but worth it!

Onto another note I started adding a small amount of oil, say around 5 to 10 mil. I am Australian for you Americans that would be

0.33814022558900003 Oz.

So probably 1 part oil 20 part Espresso.

Anyway I added organic cold pressed hemp oil. I plan to add organic cold pressed coconut oil soon.

It really does add a very mild woody taste.

It is very nice and super healthy! :)

So I thought I would Share that :)

A single espresso is about 25-30 ml, a doppio around 50-60 ml. Adding 5-10 ml of oil would be 1 part oil in 2.5-12 part espresso, depending of the size of the espresso and the amount of oil. Doesn't sound yummy to me, sorry.

ah yeah I thought that later 1 in 12 is closer not 1 in 20. Not to worry and yeah mate it is very nice. If you enjoy oils and you enjoy espresso then mixing the two is a win win :)
I never did follow 25 30 mil guidelines. I always folowed colour and smell. Yes hemp oil in espresso is with out a doubt a treasure. I doubt anyone does it so I just put the idea out there.

While the Biochemists in the audience can discuss this further, but my initial thought is that the oil is masking areas of the tongue and palate and insulating your taste from the espresso. based on that being true, if you find that adding oil improves the flavor of the espresso then I would suggest working on the flavor of the espresso which should be too delicious to "enhance." On the other hand, if you like to add flavorings to straight espresso, I'm done.

Aren't you the same guy who also posted that espresso taste better pulled cold, like 120 degree's or something like that? no offense meant (really) but something is out of wack with your palate. I remember you saying you liked espresso pulled like that and wanting to know how to lower the temperature of your machine further vs normal extraction temp of 200/201.

I don't know how it was missed in the first thread, if I had seen that thread as it was happening, I would have struck and deleted at least one of the posts there. I will be watching extra carefully here, lets keep it friendly.

Ok just for the heck of it I just tried with organic coconut oil I use for cooking.  I knew I wouldn't like it, and I was right, sorry but that was disgusting lol. Oil and coffee do not compliment each other lol. Any others want to try lol?

It does not mask the pallet, mo more than sugar and milk! No it adds to the flavour it does not change it. It is nice, I used hemp oil.

I am really glad you opened your mind to it! I am also stunned to hear you use organic coconut oil. Everyone I know hates it with a passion. I would not imagine coconut oil would be nice, it is solid when cold. I use cold pressed hemp oil, it has a nice nutty mellow flavour. Well people add cream, sugar, milk, Liquor so why not try oil lol
Do not write it off as bad, try a dif oil, hemps the only one I tried, I am not keen on any other oils. Just do not add to much.
