Curious about your thoughts on Decents (John’s) perspective that one can have substantial body and flavour clarity at the same time; just use his Waisted Basket and the Espresso in the 80s profile.
He further finds that: Higher Pre-Infusion Flow Rates (6 to 8 ml/sec) produces more body; Less Headspace produces more body; Narrow Diameter Baskets (typical to lever machines) produce more body, because the baskets are deeper and the pucks thicker; and higher temps cause problems in lower dose shots.
As per my post of a moment ago, I tried his 14g Slightly Waisted basket and Espresso in the 80s profile and got full body but terribly sour shots.
What are your thoughts on John’s approach to increasing shot body? What are my shots with this basket and coffee so darned sour!
