Thanks for the idea, Mike.  I will add just a couple of caveats.  On the 
Barista-Saeco the light comes on when the heater goes *off* - so you have 
to run water until the light goes out...and it is necessary to time each 
machine to see how long it takes before the light comes on/heater cuts off. 
I haven't tried surfing the shot yet (any minute now!) but I always do it 
for frothing milk.  My machine goes from lights out/heater on to lights 
on/heater off in about 20 seconds, so I just start frothing away at a count 
of 16-18 and the steam stays fierce through the whole process.
I'm going to go down and do the same timing check on the brewing cycle for 
my second cup - again, thanks for the idea!

I'm hungry....wonder what miKe's BBQing for lunch ???
Sorry, just thinking out loud how great it would be to be miKe's
neighbor. Borrow a cup of Kona greens, and ending up spending the
weekend tearing up used appliances, and turning them into roasting
devices...or pushing espresso machines to thier limits.
