    Good idea.

    Picture is kind of abstract but coffee tasted good, anyhow.

    21g!! I do 25 in my french press. You must have a lot space in your portafilter...do you still pass the nickel test?

    Disclaimer: This is the one & only non-m43 image that I'll post on this site.
    It was made sometime about when M43 was but a twinkle in an engineer's eye.
    I used Fuji 200 colour print film and an MC Rokkor PG 50/1.4 (wide open) on a Minolta XE-1 body.

    Yes, I use a big 21g ECM filter in a bottomless portafilter. Don't know if it would fit into my standard portafilter. I only use bottomless now: it is a good exercise to make the espresso deligently, if you don't make it right you will spoil half the kitchen with espresso :eek:

    I find 7 or 14g is not enough, Arabica beens only have 30% coffeine compared to Robusta, so 21g is a good equivalent to 7g robusta beans :wink:

    I'm using this thread as the basis of a "project".
    The inspiration for this came from a photo I saw in a cafe yesterday. The original used a coffee mug & I thought, why not a glass?
    Because of the ugly grease marks left by the beans on the glass, thats why!
    Its a work in progress.
    Critique is very welcome.

    made with an PG Rokkor 50/1.4 set at about f/4 (wide open results were 'orrible). ISO800 because I was too lazy to get the tripod out. Must do better.
    Oh, and all this was on the E-M5 using ambient light.

    Very nice image, stratokaster. I love the colors and square composition in this one.

    I like the composition.

    Though you should know that the beans only leave oils on glass like that for two reasons: either they're too old or roasted way too dark. Fresh coffee at good roast level is actually quite dry.
