What Exactly is the Ristretto? How do we brew it?

There are many variations to the espresso. One of the most commonly ordered variation is the Double Ristretto. Traditionally defined as a very strong or concentrated espresso, the ristretto is typically an espresso with a 1:1 Brew Ratio, while double just means a double shot.In our experience however, we have come across 2 different methods or brewing ristrettos; the Three Part Extraction theory and the fixed 1:1 Brew Ratio method.

We won't dictate which is better or correct as we prefer to encourage people to test it out for themselves and decide which they think is the method they prefer or believe in. At Compound Coffee Co. though, we stick to a fixed 1:1 Brew Ratio method.
