Sorry to start a new thread, but after reading here about cup size/thickness I didn't come across the topic I have in mind.
I like to pull doubles 2-3 times a day. At the moment I weigh the dose then time the shots, though I'm planning on upgrading my grinder and scale *very* soon to convert to a 18g dose/36g in the cup method. My issue is simply this: my cups aren't wide enough!
When I'm dialing in, I use two graduated shot glasses and there's no problem. But thereafter I've attempted to use these attractive but thin (too thin, apparently) mugs for a double shot that a friend gifted me. They measure about 2.5'' in diameter and the first spurt out of my E61 brewhead/portafilter is always too wide for the cup. It's messy and I also end up losing precious drops of crema
I'm likely going to buy these cups, which appear to be wider: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007381GB4/?coliid=IE6KM7AGMO1JJ&colid=3ACXORQQZ2AOQ&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
I've also looked at the notNeutral LINO cups among others. Anyone have a similar issue with cups for doubles not being wide enough?
