Espresso coffee - Nazareth - El Salvador
Central American coffee as espresso have always been a favorite of mine. This one is round, sweet and very well structured with transparent and tasty flavour notes of ripe red fruits and chocolate.
Use a 1:2,2 brew ratio. With all espresso you first need to identify the size of the filter basket - preferably of the brand VST ridgles - that you are using. We always recommend to dose the same amount of grams as the size of the basket. For this coffee that would be the filter basket size * 2,2, aiming for a target TDS of 8-8,5. Depending on which grinder and set-up your working with the result will be a bit different but the recommended brew time is still between 27 - 32 seconds for this coffee.
