Yeah, the idea was to have a set of ingredients and mix them on a shot-by-shot basis, experimenting with different blends to figure it out.
I have some Guat I can add to the mix too.

And 7 grams?! Who pulls 7 gram shots? I'm doing around 18g ristrettos with a triple basket.

Hey, thanks! One nice thing about having this commercial espresso machine in my office is that I'm pulling tons of shots, so I'm going through lots of coffee....which means I'm ordering more; I can see I'll have to expand the varietals I have on hand, but that shouldn't be a problem :D
