In the sixth installment of the series, Phillip and Dan discuss the key contributor to making exceptional espresso as home: Consistency. In Part I, Dan recommends steps the barista should master to assure consistent performance from the espresso machine and grinder. He also demonstrates an easy, fast technique for dosing. In Part II, Dan and Phillip look closely at how a bottomless portafilter can help diagnose problems and thereby increase consistency.
