I've been having some uneventful days, just trying to get a solid amount of rest after working a lot with a project at work. Nothing much has happened coffeewise either, except from trying some espresso blends with the popper coffee and playing around with the single filter that came with the Euro2000 junior. It turns out that I can produce a nice single using the same grind as the double if I use about 12 grams of coffee in the single filter. The extraction is very nice and steady. I really like both the double and single filter that came with the machine. Earlier I've just ignored them, believing that the only path to espresso heaven has been through the use of LM and Rancilio double filters. Turns out that the E2K filters are just as good and the puck falls out in one piece each and every time.
The popper espresso I did turned out quite nice. It didn't seem very promising when I tried some the day after, but after leaving it for 3-4 days it was nice. All the gases and carbonic acid from too fresh coffee can be almost offensive.
