    question about Saeco Incanto Sirius

    Hi,

    I just got a Saeco Incanto Sirius and have a question about making a double espresso. If I want a double espresso or a double latte, is it best to press 1 small coffee twice? I've tried using the medium setting and it doesn't seem to come out right (too weak).

    Thanks

    Yes...

    The small, medium, large setting is deceptive

    Some will tell you that you use the small for a shot of espresso, the medium for a longer shot (a lungo) and the large for yet a longer shot.

    In truth, if you do so all you'll get is a bunch of hot water forced through already extracted beans.

    I've had several super autos over the years and they ALL have this confusing feature.

    I set mine up as follows:

    small - 3/4 - 1 oz - for a ristretto
    medium 1.25 - 1.5 oz - regular shot
    large - I don't use

    For 1 ristretto hit the small button
    for a larger ristretto (half a demi-tasse or so) hit the small twice
    for each espresso shot hit the medium button (I use two for a 10 oz americano)- you can hit it up to twice

    Hope this helps. Some people set it up with like 8 oz of water going through a single shot of coffee - you can well imagine what this tastes like - blech! - yet it's advocated by a lot of 'experts'
