Espresso Roast Brewing Advice:

Use a 1:2.4 brew ratio. With all espresso you must first identify the size of your filter basket - preferably of the brand and variety 'VST 'Ridgeless' - that you are using. For this particular coffee, the optimal dose would be -2g from the basket size, using a 1:2.4 ratio, and aiming for a target TDS of 8.4. Depending on which grinder and set-up you're working with, the result will be varied however our recommended total brew time is still between 27 - 29 seconds brewing this coffee.
