    B. 18-23 Seconds
    Explanation
    The ideal time range for an espresso shot to be brewed in is 18-23 seconds. This range allows for the extraction of the optimal flavors and aromas from the coffee grounds, resulting in a well-balanced and flavorful espresso shot. If the brewing time is too short, the shot may be under-extracted and taste weak or sour. On the other hand, if the brewing time is too long, the shot may be over-extracted and taste bitter or burnt. Therefore, the 18-23 second range is considered the ideal time for brewing an espresso shot.
