As a newcomer to bean to cup coffee, I would appreciate advice on a small point relating to brewing. I have a Gaggia Classic Pro and, in order to get my coffee mug in under the filter basket, I have to remove the drip tray. I then read that the drop to the bottom of the mug is not ideal for the crema, so I put a small glass container on top of the weighing scales and place the combination on top of the drip tray. That works pretty good but I was just wondering about the "lost" crema when I pour the espresso from the glass container into the 350ml mug (I drink exclusively lattes). Any comments?
