Triple easier than Double?
seedlings
I've found that it's significantly easier to get consistent, repeatable good espresso shots with the triple basket (3oz in 45~55s). I almost always sink a shot or two with the double basket, first one chokes, second one gushes, sometimes I can fix it by the third try, but I just tend to stay with the triple. Is it mind games, or does anyone else have this trouble? Or... I think the triple basket is more forgiving.

Now that I've typed this, I could return to weighing the grounds for each double...

I've not tried a triple, since I don't have a basket, and it would make more espresso than I'd want anyway. However, I do know from experience that a double is easier than a single, for me.

I'm with Dan. A single is easier for me as well. I don't pull singles; it's not enough coffee for me.

Interesting. I wonder why a larger shot is easier to pull?

50sec shots! You gotta be kidding me.
Nope, I'm the one kidding. I like long shots more, too.

OK guys,

not sure what you are saying...

like a single, double or triple or can't do any of the above!!

baskets don't matter.

this goes back to my old, old post of a double double.

single, double good to great but a double double, a bit more then a double in a basket makes for a great cup!! not quite a triple but on the verge!!

it's in the roast, the grind and it lives:

the double double!!

There are many in between sizes of all standard basket types

Choose the one best suited to your style & machine

For me its the tamp depth that is the most crucial factor no matter what basket one uses
The best depth is a hairs whisker clearance from the water screen when the group handle is locked in

I can pull shots equally well with any basket even if I haven't done one for several months with a particular basket size

I home roast and I like it
