mark inman's taylormaid espresso 0 specs

as promised, i'm posting these for you as soon as i got 'em from mark inman. you may want to read the general description of mark's new taylormaid espresso here.

espresso 0 specs:

  • portafilter: using a 14 gram (double shot) basket, fill with 16 grams of fresh ground espresso
  • tamp: using about 40 pounds of pressure, compact a level surface of espresso
  • machine temp: sweet spot for this coffee is 198 degrees
  • run-time/volume: 1 ½ oz of thick buttery espresso should pour out in 25 - 28 seconds

personally, as long-time readers know, i pull all my shots these days as triples, ever since our long-time bccy pals at espressoparts made me a custom triple portafilter. so i wonder what mark's specs would be for a triple ristretto of this puppy?
