Balancing your extraction

Share with friends

Join professional barista Leo Schmidt as she explains how to extract the best shot of espresso so you can enjoy third wave specialty coffee at home. To create a balanced espresso shot using The Oracle® Touch, you need to find the optimal extraction, which baristas call "dialing in." This is where choosing the right grind size is essential. For example, if your espresso is flowing too fast, it's under-extracted and you need to decrease the grind size. If your espresso is flowing too slowly, it's over-extracted and you need to increase the grind size. Breville espresso machines take care of everything, so all you need to be aware of is dialing in the grind.
