18 gms ground coffee in a triple-basket bottomless portafilter, and 35 gms coffee pulled in 30 - 40 seconds.
If I want to prepare for guests I want to swap the bottomless portafilter for a double spouted one, and pour two cups at a time.
My question is what parameters need I change? Increase the ground coffee dose in the portafilter? Decrease the quantity of coffee/cup? Change the grind? The pull time?
Thanks for your help.
My double cappuccino workflow is:
Fill pitcher with cold milk for 2 cappuccinos
Prepare portafilter for shot of double espresso
Cooling flush into cup 1 (I have a HX machine) will also pre-heat cup 1
Put portafilter in and pour hot water from cup 1 into cup 2
Brew espresso and steam milk at the same time
Clean the steam wand, put cup 1 on top of the machine and prepare the portafilter for the next shot.
Brew the second espresso into cup 2 and at the same time pour the milk into cup1
Pour the milk into cup 2
clean the portafilter
