A simple procedure to make oneself a single dosed cup of coffee, using the G-IOTA grinder and the LONDINIUM R24 espresso machine.
This G-IOTA needs to be set very fine, a little below the "zero" point even and the grinding takes relatively long (37s) but then, at 18g in the 18g basket, a nice flow delivered a delicious sweet early morning espresso.
This procedure would fit well with home baristas who enjoy all the extended rituals of weighing the beans, watching the grinder munch away with a spray of grinds at the start and a long breath of grind dust at the end to finish off the last few beans, weighing again, shaking, stirring, tamping...
I mostly just push a button on one of the other grinders, get 18g in a few seconds, stir, tamp, lock in and extract, but the LR24 espresso from the G-IOTA grinds was impeccable so I'm sure people who choose the G-IOTA for its low price will be happy.
For this medium light (Tonino #97) roast of Cuba Serrano Superior, fully washed, roasted 20 days ago, I selected a mild pre-infusion pressure of just 2.4 bar on the LONDINIUM app.
