- 1/4 oz (7 g) ground espresso coffee, pod or capsule
It is the smallest of them all, but it commands respect. Dedicated to those who don't like half measures, espresso ristretto has a strong character where everything is focused on a single goal: pure, decisive pleasure. Served without sugar, it is the passion of those who prefer coffee without distractions.
1. To prepare the "smallest" coffee of them all, follow the classic method, using your espresso machine as usual with a capsule, pod or ground coffee. Only one thing changes: extraction time is shorter.
2. Start the machine and stop it when you have 20 ml (1 tbsp plus 1 tsp) of espresso and in any case not before 25 seconds have passed: this is the minimum time necessary for obtaining a cup rich in aroma.
