Topic: Am I decadent or what? (2 msgs / 38 lines)
1) From: jim gundlach
I read that people used to tamp their espresso with their thumb.  The 
other day I put my standard two and a half scoops of fresh ground 
coffee into the filter and smoothed it off with a gentle tapping with 
the bottom of the scoop and then gave it a press with my finger.  
Pressing the coffee down provided  a quite pleasant sensation.  So much 
so that I now find that I regularly press the coffee with a finger 
before tamping.  Am I decadent or what?
