I have been really enjoying brewing espresso in my new espresso pot. I bought these beans at Murray's Cheese Shop downtown, where I had them grind the beans for me. The beans were ground super fine, and I am tasting the difference in my espresso. The result is a much stronger and better cup. Initially I was worried that if I ground the beans too fine I would have very grainy espresso, but that hasn't been the case. Black Cat Classic has been one of my favorite espresso beans I have brewed on my pot so far.
