My quest to bring consistant Tiger Stripes continues. I find the 'aussie' dosing method to be more effective in this case...at least so far. I'm open to other suggestions but right now it seems to work the best. For those who aren't familiar with 'aussie' dosing, it is a method that requires you to tap the porta-filter as you dose. This allows 'over-dosing' of grinds into the filter to get more of the sweeter notes in the espresso. I suppose the name refers to it's origin but there could be some hidden meaning that I'm unaware of. Someone enlighten me.
