So what exactly is a ristretto? In this video Luke explains what a ristretto is and how we use them here at Artisti Coffee Roastery.
Put simply it's the first half of a 'Normale' extraction and packs far more flavour, sweetness and complex flavours than the last half of an extraction. Each part of the extraction serves its own purpose depending on the type and size of drink a barista is preparing.
If you've been having trouble understanding what a ristretto or double ristretto is then hopefully you find some answers in this video.
