The Espresso Shot Extraction basic guidelines we use at Koffee Kult are as follows. 


Standard espresso machines:

Single Shot - 7 grams of coffee, 20 second extraction time, finish with 1 ounce or espresso

Double Shot - 14 grams of coffee, 20 seconds extraction time, finish with 2 ounces of espresso

Triple Shot - 21 grams of coffee, 30 seconds extraction time, finish with 2 ounces of espresso


Machines with pre-infusion:

Single Shot - 7 grams of coffee, 3 s pre-infusion, 22/24 seconds total shot (ramp down at 95%) extraction time, finish with 1 ounce of espresso

Double Shot - 14 grams of coffee, 4 s pre-infusion, 24/26 seconds total shot (ramp down at 95%) extraction time, finish with 2 ounces of espresso

Triple Shot -21 grams of coffee,  4s pre-infusion 32/34 seconds total shot (ramp down at 95%) extraction time, finish with 2 ounces of espresso


Please keep in mind If the dosage and shot time are consistent your espresso shots will be the same every time even with changing humidity and coffee age. 


Check your water temp, it should be 202/203 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Below 200 will be under extracted 

Above 205 degrees your coffee will bitter
