coffee/espresso brewing tips
Mr. Coffee® Espresso Makers make it easy to brew perfect espresso every time. Follow these simple tips and get ready to savor the flavor.
- Daily grind. Fresh coffee tastes better, so use your Mr. Coffee® grinder just before brewing to preserve the integrity of the coffee beans.
- The Ground Rules. It's important to use the correct grind. If you end up with more than one ounce of espresso after 25 seconds of brewing, the grind is too coarse; If less than an ounce, it's too fine.
- Does it measure up? Use the precise amount of coffee by piling it slightly higher in the middle of the filter than the rim.
- Pack a punch. Water has to flow correctly over the entire surface area of the coffee to get the right taste. Pack it too loosely and it will be bitter; too densly and it won't pass through at all.
