    I'm not the boss of you or anything, but... here's a fun little experiment to see if what I tasted matched up with what's actually happening.
    All of this in the name of enjoying your coffee just a little more.

If you have no spoon, don‘t swirl but use your finger 👇☕️

I don't like drinking my espresso directly without stirring. I always stir it & it's one of the reasons why I like espresso.

What if you swirled it for longer than usual? Maybe the spoon is just more effective at mixing the espresso in a shorter amount of time.

Nice bottle of Mr. Black in the background! That is by far my favourite coffee liqueur.

When you said percentages, my first thought was “Christ, his tastebuds are good, or he’s full of crap”...then you mentioned the refractometer😂

That obsession for spoons makes me wonder if James is the "Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon" ?

Well, I wonder what an espresso smells/ tastes like in a nosing glass.

It's not a new idea apparently, but also pretty controversial: https://medium.com/@CoffeeGeek/espresso-in-glass-bad-trend-8ec2e5216368 . When you get beyond the outrage, the substantive objections seem to be that a) glass cools too quickly and b) espresso doesn't look very nice through a glass, especially when clinging to the sides after being swirled. On the other hand, there still seem to be real advantages to having something which a) would probably mix the coffee more effectively if you do swirl it, and with less risk of spillage and b) would trap the vapours coming from the espresso, so I'm not convinced that it's simply a terrible idea which should be forgotten about. Maybe a vessel which is snifter-shaped but made of porcelain or ceramic rather than glass? Or of double-walled glass? Or maybe just use a glass vessel but warm it before putting in the coffee?

Contrast us an educator and a provider of variety. I personally have tried many times to appreciate more from a stirred shot...and I don't. That being said, I'm a scotch drinker, not a sherry drinker, so I don't mind exploring the extremes a bit...

You can never have enough expertise on how to improve an espresso. For me personally the difference between 8 to 10 percent concentration would probably go unnoticed, but I like the fact that you did. Great video

That weird moment when Kruve uses massive fragments of that video in their Kickstarter campaign to prove swirling glasses are the best :D

We use those Fellow espressos cups, which supposedly enhance the aroma. I’ll try stirring now.

That gives me an incredibly brilliant, bad idea. Erlenmeyer Espresso Cups!!! The conical shape of an Erl Flask allows for almost complete homogeneity by swirling for mere seconds... No spills, and they look cool! (the idea exists, but as a novelty coffee mug, they have no real neck, so it would not work in those)

You are 100% my favorite coffee-specialist YouTuber. You just utilized the scientific method to determine whether or not stirring and swirling were comparable mixing methods for an espresso shot. 10/10 will watch again.

James, what do you think about those wooden stirrers? I think it changes the flavor of coffee in a bad way. Is this in my head? I know the stirrer is not in there that long but your video on different V60 filters changing taste made me think.

you didn't need to be pushed to yield to your temptation...may as well revel in it....subjective question : is there a spirit you deem worthy of mixing with a coffee/espresso (or perhaps enjoying off to the side) or do you hold that a fine dram and a fine espresso are each diminished when combined? perhaps a middle ground.

Chug the whole thing at once and then mix it in your mouth by swishing it around and between your teeth like a strong mouthwash... 😉

I would like to say... you're right. I can explain why you're right via reply; but my suspicion is being as clever as you are... you know exactly why. (centrifugal force)
