4Have you been reading all of this carefully up to this point? This story is a chronological record, and it should be plain that I don't even own a machine yet. How in all of God's creation could I possibly teach you how to make perfect espresso, or even make it for myself for that matter? To rest your mind I will tell you here and now that I am not going to even attempt to teach you the "How" of brewing espresso. There are lots of great websites and experts out there to assist you with that. This diatribe is more aimed at the mental process I went (and am going) through starting at the time I decided that I wanted to have espresso at home.

thought, "Cool! Look at all this stuff just about espresso!" then 'The espresso army wants YOU!'
