  1. Hi! I saw an interesting thread to contribute to, so I just subscribed! Few years of home espresso behind me, I am looking forward to improve my shots thanks to your help. Cheers, JP
  2. Right, so I'm just starting off in this home espresso thing, and I'm loving it so far! I know the basics of tamping the espresso and what the crema is, frothing and the temperature of milk, how to get a cappucino right but that's really it. I've been very ... incorrect? In terms of some things so far, I've been using a mug to froth milk in! (It does the job, but I'd rather a stainless steel pitcher!) I'm wondering on where's the best place to get a small stainless steel pitcher, a milk thermometer in Fahrenheit, proper espresso cups and the likes. Any help would be appreciated!
  3. Hello everyone, This is my first coffee forum so I hope the introduction is not something you've all read a hundred times before, though I don't want to get your hopes up. I started out 15 years ago with an entry level Gaggia espresso machine and a Gaggia MM grinder. I enjoyed myself but found it a mildly frustrating experience, getting wildly different espresso results and not knowing why, and always failing at satisfactory milk frothing with a panarello and dearth of steam. Cue university and a swapping of coffee for alcohol and on my return the espresso machine had died of neglect though the grinder still works to this day, though I'm figuring that needs upgrading sooner rather than later. Ten years of tea and harking back to the frustrations of my first machine I bought a completely automatic Krups EA9000. My visions of pressing a button and having instant drinks at my fingertips were not fulfilled as the maintenance demanded of me from the LCD screen was just as time consuming as the Gaggia but without any of the satisfaction of achieving anything yourself and though I now had consistent results, they were consistently underwhelming and after two trips for repair in the first year I realise it was too clever for its own good. So here I am today with the refund for that just processed and the money already burning a hole in my pocket I am deciding how far into the deep end to jump. After lots of reading around and finding everything a bit America-centric I found this place with hopes to increase my knowledge and not fall in to the the previous potholes I encountered on the road to great coffee at home. Who knows, maybe I will one day be able to help other people new to it, but at the moment I find the amount of information to digest a bit overwhelming.
