The journey of tuning espresso to get the best from coffee beans into the cup.

👇 Skip to log entries

This is a record of the various beans and brews that I’ve tried in an experiment to find my favorite brew and my process for tweaking the variables that go into making a stellar cup of espresso.

Scores are between one to four stars ⭐ and reflect my own personal preference, not necessarily the quality of the coffee. The coffee beans I’ll be using will largely be from my local area (📍Orlando, FL) and as small batch and traceable as possible.
