Subject: How can it get better?
Used the naked portafilter. PID set to 229.5F
With Malabar Gold roasted 6 days prior,
my double shot came out in 24 seconds with
5/16" of crema and flavor that should last for hours!

What else do I have to look forward to? ;-)

Hope you have better luck than me :-(. But if it's bad I have no one to
blame but myself!

If your kids need some inspiration and encouragement, have them watch
this clip of an eight year old barrista. (she is already much better
than me) :-(

Wow! She's much better than I, especially since I don't do latte's and
rarely do cappuccino. I did save the link to show my not-so-interested
kids.

Thanks,
Gary

Only 5/16" ?? I routinely get 5/8" of crema! Really it's not the height of
the crema that matters, (to a point) it's about the taste. {;-)

Agreed, with the high % of Monsooned in that blend, you should be getting
more crema. The temperature seems a bit high - unless you've roasted it very
light. Ditto taste tho'.

Just out of curiosity, are you using Malabar Gold or a different mix?
Every blend has its own proponents and characteristics.
