This is one of the best ristrettos I have ever pulled. This is my first week using Epic Espresso from 49th Parallel, and I have been having issues with the coffee seeming too fresh even after a few days. The beans are now 6 days old, and I was able to produce an amazing shot. I wish I had pulled this into a glass cup, but you can still see it okay. It took me about 20 seconds to get my camera and take a picture.
