I'm totally with Mike. All I do is esspresso shots for cappuccinos, and
having started originally with predominantly dark roasts I nowadays stay
away from 2nd crack in most of my roasts, after having discovered the
real flavor in the coffee origins that get muted or obliterated by the
darker roast. Many thanks to Mike and others in the list for helping me
realize this.

That statement is completely misleading if not totally in error. Some of
the
finest espresso cafes (all that I know of actually), ones that pull
excellent shots, do not roast dark well into 2nd. I think you'd find
quite a
few if not the majority of List members who are into espresso don't
roast
dark either. If you're talking Charbucks sure, but *$ does not equal
good
espresso.
