The Magical Art of Espresso

We got an espresso machine. We figured that given our propensity for drinking double-espressos every day without fail, it will pay for itself in less than a year. We almost got a fully-auto one, just put in the beans and push the button, but that seemed like a missed opportunity. I want to learn to make espresso manually! I want to fiddle with the dozens of minute factors that separate good from sublime brew! I want to be prepared if I find myself in an Italian villa full of supermodels! So far so good. I’ve been able to make something which is as good as what I’ve been buying, and I’ve now got a series of experiments before me to try to improve it further. It’s a trivial pursuit but at 7AM in the morning I’m not good for much else, so I may as well harness my desire for caffeine.
