Congrats Greg, thanks for sharing part of your Journey. Sounds like some
delightful shots of a good blend, I could virtually taste it while I read!
How long will you be in England? If there's anyway I'd try and hook up or at
least contact Jimseven (James Hoffmann, '07 World Barista Champion from
England). He's got to know some places for good espresso in the UK!

Yes, there's a post on www.jmseven.com about a disloyalty card that
lists six or seven good shops in london, and you get a free drink if
you complete the card.  There's also a lot of informative and thought
provoking posts to be found there.
Glad to hear it's coming together on the home front. I had a nice shot
of Ecco at my favorite shop this morn and a nice session pulling shots
tonight. I had torn my lever down the week before last to clean and
change seals unexpectedly and ended up burning through most of my Moka
Kadir I roasted for espresso.  I roasted up an Ethiopian Korate (C), a
honey (meil) processed Panama (FC), a Tanzanian Peaberry (C+), and a
Sumatra (FC) without much forethought about what to do for espresso.
The Korate has been nice, juicy bleberries, but a little too much, I
guess as a SO it's lacking balance. The real surprise (for me) was the
Tanz as SO. After making a cappuccino for the Wife and pulling a
double Korate and a double blend, I finished with a single Tanz that
was so nice I had to pull it twice (have another single). The taste
reminded me of something like pomegranite, I wasn't expecting this
especially since this is usually my goto bean for coffee flavored
coffee with a nice, long aftertaste and my usual base for coffee ice
cream.
Best,
Chris

Wow! That's quite a statement.
I live in Orange County, CA, also and I've found a number of good coffee shops.  IIRC, OC is where Dedrichs got its 
start, and had a great shop in Newport Beach on PCH. May still be there.
There's a list of coffee houses athttp://www.letseatoc.com/coffee.htm,and even throwing out the Starbucks shops 
there's still several dozen coffee shops listed. I like JC Beans in Dana Point and Natale's in Huntington Beach has 
some good coffees, but there are many others.
