Topic: My First Shots (3 msgs / 62 lines)
1) From: Marc Joseph
Well, my Gusto arrived yesterday as expected. I pulled my first couple
of shots with the Illy decaf that I bought, as it was fairly late and
didn't want to get too wired. The crema was thick and beautiful, and
evolved into three layers as seen through the glass cup that I used. The
taste wasn't bad either, not too bitter or anything. I don't have a lot
to compare it to, most of my experience with espresso is from the
Starbuck's at work.
In the morning I pulled shots from some Mexican Oacaxa Pluma (sp?) that
I had roasted myself. I made some really excellent Americanos. Sweet and
rich, and not a trace of bitterness. I made a capp for my daughter which
I tasted and wasn't bad either, although I don't care much for milk
based drinks.
I found the Gusto very easy to learn to operate and would highly
recommend it to anyone as good starter machine. I'm looking forward to
receiving the espresso blends that I order from SM to see what it can
really do.

I found the same Marc.  The milk frothing attachment works particularly
well - you can easily get an entire pitcher of creamy microfoam.  The
cappuchinos are lovely! My daughter now comes to visit every day for her
Capp!

'Tis a slippery slope. Just be careful out there, your coffee journey taste
experiences are going up hill but may lead to a downhill financial spiral
ever striving for the even better coffee taste experience... oops just
talking to myself again!:-) now where was that Ambex brochure... no no the
Wega Noveccento brochure... wait wait need more grinder reviewing - Mazzer
Mini or Rocky or...  really should get back to negotiating on those 100#
bags of Estate Kona XF... I'll settle for a shot from Miss Silvia at the
moment!:-)
