Your presence here shows you like to drink a double shot of Espresso just like me. I am a coffee addict, and I can’t take a single shot of Espresso, as it contains 40 ml coffee and seems insufficient for me. So, I always pour a double shot of Espresso at a time, and even when I go to a cafe, I order double Espresso shots (Doppio).
Have you ever noticed, some people get confused between a Lungo and a double shot of Espresso, thinking both are the same. For some peeps, a double shot means pressing the Espresso button twice while using the same capsule. A ‘double shot of Espresso’ is when you use two different pods and take two different shots for the same cup.
