Day 14: Espresso and sour punch dont mix

This is my coffee bar. It’s not a La Pavoni, but it will brew a decent drip and a pretty good espresso. Maybe if i put in one of those temp regulators it’l brew better.

Temperature is very important in making expresso. Too cold and its sour, too hot and its bitter. Just right in between, when youve got it just right -its sweet. Not a sugar sweet, but an innate sweetness in the quality of the shot. Coffee *is* supposed to be bitter, but if you have ever waited too long for an espresso… Sour punch straws and war heads come to mind.

Have you ever had a cold espresso? Or a sour punch baby?
