Nurk2, sorry if this has become a hijack beyond what you asked, but somewhat related :)

Hijack?!? I started a thread about - essentially - nothing, and it turned into a great, useful discussion.

Go for it. Hijack away!

And for what it's worth, I tried again this morning to pull a quick "running-out-the-door" shot, and it came out great!

BTW - I went back to my former temp surf method. It just works for me. I was pulling shots that were way hot - just dribbling hot black yuck.

It's like, I can't find my glasses without my glasses.

Cold Saturday morning. Hurrying to get out the door to an early soccer game. Do I have time to make an espresso? Sure.

Warm up the machine while I'm running around getting stuff together. Grab the pf. Dose. Lock it. Hit the switch, hit the timer.

Pump's running...

Pressure's building...

  ~~BAM!!!!~~

Espresso grounds EVERYWHERE!

What the....  Oh. I guess next time I should use the filter basket.

I find that I need to make a small pot of pour over while I wait for my machine to come up to temp.  This morning I made 4 cups (2 cup for the wife 2 for me) of med roast Kona using the V60 to drink while we waited (impatiently I might add) for the espresso machine to come up to stable temp.  

you know you "got it bad" when you have to make a pot of coffee to consume while you wait for your espresso machine to come up to temperature so you can start making coffee.

I went to my ENT doc last week because of an ongoing irritation in my upper throat. Remarkably, she suggested that maybe - just maybe - I'd get some relief if I wasn't choking down 50 oz of press-pot coffee every morning.

She's crazy.
