    Extraction time for double shot?

    Do you just double the single shot time OR is it nearly the same? The latter seems to be what I observe in local coffee houses. I did a search on extraction times and got every msg that had the word extraction or time even tho I used quotes. So here I am.

    thanks

    Between 15 to 25 seconds. I really tend to think your times will always run around the board a little bit. Coffee changes and so do espresso blends. Also people tend play with the grinder a lot too.

    Personally I don't care about shot times, I am going for overall quality and if that means my shot time for a double is 28 seconds then its 28 seconds. I care about the taste of the espresso. If it doesn’t taste good then I am going to tweak it until I get it right!
    Have you ever walked through the aisle of your local grocer and smelled the death of a dying bean?

    Thanks CCafe and Topher. I was at a drive up espresso stand in Silver City NM and the guy was using taller shot glasses instead of the regular shot glass [like in a bar] and he said his `shots' were 1.75 oz. Is this pretty standard, making a double shot 3.5 oz of liquid?

    It takes me about 28 seconds to pull a 1 oz single or a 2 oz double.
    You want cream and sugar?

    I was reading my last post and realized I had an error. 15 seconds is for a super auto. 20 to 25, but like Topher said you can go as high as 30 seconds.

    Boy oh boy, everytime I see this shot timing discussion, it brings chills down the back of my spine...I sure some of you know what I'm talking about However I must agree with CCafe, do it until you get it right, and once you get it right, keep it a secret, that way you don't have to tell anybody else... But just for the record I say 16-25.
