What’s the recommended dose for espresso?

How much coffee do I use?

The recommended dose varies depending on which Flair you are brewing with, and your own particular tastes! 

Essentially, the maximum dose is whatever you can pack in the portafilter while allowing space to set the dispersion screen. The minimum dose will be dependent on how low you can go while still generating sufficient resistance to build back-pressure in the system (6-9 BAR).

In general:

Flair 58: 16-20g (but because of the third-parry compatibility of the 58 millimeter portafilter, users can purchase alternate baskets that accept anything from seven to 28 grams dose)

PRO2: 16-24g

Standard (NEO, Classic, Signature): 12-18g
