How to adjust shot volume, duration and temperature
The perfect espresso extraction is essential for enjoying third wave specialty coffee. It is the foundation of the delicious, café-style coffees you love like the Americano, latte, cappuccino, café mocha, and much more. The Bambino® Plus allows you to customize its settings so you can make your favorite coffee drinks exactly as you like them. Follow along with the video to learn how to adjust the espresso shot volume and save for future brewing. Start by grinding the coffee beans, tamping, and trimming the dose. Next, press and hold both the '1-Cup' and the '2-Cup' buttons simultaneously. In a couple of seconds, the buttons begin to flash, then light steady. Next, insert the portafilter into the group head and lock it into place. Now, press the '1-Cup' button to begin a single cup extraction. Instead of waiting for the machine to finish the extraction, you can stop it by pressing the '1-Cup' button again at your ideal serving size. This ends the extraction and saves this custom volume for future use. You can adjust the 2-cup shot volume in the same way. Just press the '2-Cup' button instead of the '1-Cup' button.
