Swaslu thinks, with its Permian mind, that espresso ain't all that complicated.
First off, let the roasters roast an build relationships with the growers. The art of roasting and the effort to interact is on the qualitative end of the spectrum.
Second, dig into what espresso is as opposed to brewing. That is on the science end of the spectrum, an end with which Swaslu is entirely familiar.
Swaslu's favorite brewing mechanism, if Swalsu can't get an Americano, is the good old siphon Brewing.
But whether you use a siphon, a percolator of some pour over variation, lets get one thing perfectly clear.
How are brews different than espresso ...
|Percolators , siphons and pour overs are like||Espresso is like|
|Picking someone's pocket. Get some cash and a credit card or two.|| Getting someone's Date of Birth, SSN#, Mother's maiden name, phone number. You now own them. |
|A dance with the granules of coffee.||A centrifuge forcing the essence of the bean into a cup|
|a bunt||a triple|
