+1, except "C ± 0.1 grams of coffee giving L ± 1 grams of liquid in T ± 1 seconds" where C, L and T are not explicit numbers. Some poor n00b will try to squeeze 20g in a standard Faema basket. Some multi bean, multi roast coffees aren't capable of ±.0 precision. The explicit number are for a triple basket and a shot style not all coffees are capable of and not all appreciate.

Yes, you're right! I was simply giving an example but I can see how that would get misunderstood, thanks.

You know how when you were a little kid and you thought you knew a bunch about the world, then one day you heard a conversation that blew your mind and made you realize how little you actually know about anything? That definitely just happened after reading this thread.

Little kid? This happens to me at least once a week!
