So I wrote that last email while the Krups was heating up.
Then I ground some coffee real fine in my MM (put it on the arrow) and 
packed the KG PF with it, the larger of the two baskets.
Pumped a shot, after tamping a little with that plastic thingie they 
send, and the espresso came out.
Tasted it, bitter, and dumped it.
Let it heat up again, grind more coffee, and pack the Estro PF. 
Interestingly they seem to hold about the same, but I am not using the 
'deep' one.
Tamped it the same way ( geesh) :-[ , and pumped another. (It not only 
fits but it doesn't leak! It works!)
This time it came through quicker, more holes in the basket I guess, a 
little bit of crema, like before, and bitter.
Steamed some half and half.. not quite as good a steamer as the Estro, 
but this has that air injection thingie to make you think it is frothing.
I am not qualified to say if this is a good Capaccino. Especially since 
I had a root canal yesterday and it has been bleeding all day (just 
noticed).
So my taster is a bit more off than usual, but it is at least better 
than the local *$.
Goodie :)
