Ok, pulled 3 x 14g doubles today:
32-34 sec brew time
202-200 brew temp
Like yesterday, I took a sip of each shot prior to putting it in my mug for latte (one double goes in my wife's latte, 2 go in mine). As a shot, these were pretty good. Smooth, noticeable sweetness, with just a hint of sour. I'd consider this drinkable as a shot. In the milk, however, the espresso got lost. It tasted like I was drinking warm milk with a subtle hint of espresso (my milk volume remained constant throughout this process). So apparently my palette prefers bolder shots in lattes, and less bold shots stand-alone.
