Ninjas have long been known for their stealthy skills, but did you know they can also make a mean cup of espresso? It’s true! With the right set of tools and a few simple instructions, ninjas can become master baristas and whip up the perfect cup of espresso in no time.
The first step to making great espresso is to choose the right coffee beans. Ninjas usually prefer dark roasts that have a bold flavor and a deep aroma. After selecting the beans, they will grind them to the desired size, usually a fine grind, which will produce a strong, intense shot of espresso.
Once the beans have been ground, the ninja will then load the ground coffee into the portafilter. This is a metal basket that holds the grounds and is placed into the espresso machine. The ninja will then lock the portafilter into the machine and press the start button.
As the espresso is brewed, the ninja will monitor the process to ensure that the shot is extracted correctly. They will use a timer to make sure the shot is extracted for the required amount of time, usually around 25 seconds.
Once the shot has been extracted, the ninja will remove the portafilter and discard the grounds. They will then use a tamper to press down on the remaining grounds to make sure they are evenly distributed. This is an important step that helps to ensure that the espresso is extracted correctly.
Finally, the ninja will pour the espresso into a cup and then add the desired ingredients, such as milk and sugar. If the ninja is feeling creative, they can also add flavored syrups or spices to the espresso to make a unique, custom drink.
So the next time you need a cup of espresso, why not let a ninja handle it? With their knowledge and expertise, they can make a delicious cup of espresso in no time.
