Subject: Solo (Single) shot pulling
 

When pulling a single shot of espresso from my machine, I find that it will burn if not quickly mixed with milk or another product. Possibly to cool it down and keep it from cooking. My problem is that if a customer asks for a shot of espresso and only a shot of espresso, how do I keep that shot from burning?

i've honestly never heard of shots burning. my guess is your grind is too fine, you're tamping too hard, or you are overfilling your portafilter resulting in an over-extracted burnt taste that you don't notice when mixed with milk or water.

Mod note. Moved to espresso general from coffee general.
