Thanks to the guidance on this forum as well as the many other excellent =
websites, I finally did a Schomer. 
I guess I must have packed and dosed perfectly and the water temp in the =
Giotto as well. Thick dark golden brown crema from start to finish. =
Looked like the pictures on Vivace. Just like morphing chromium
Then to top it all off, I steamed the milk perfectly for a delicious =
cappuccino. Even a little Latte art on top.
Now to learn the roasting skills

Heh, heh, heh... Can you imagine how boring it would be to be able to 
do that all the time?

Oh, but how did it taste?  I am glad for you.  I never could have made it 
into a cappuccino.  I would have had to see if the taste matched the 
appearance.

The taste of the cap was superb!

  The only thing that I did differently was the dosing and packing. I tried
to follow Schomer's packing instructions. I used exactly two level coffee
measures, leveled it with my fingers and then very lightly packed it evenly.
Then I gave it the 30 to 40 pound tamp  and then really polished that dude!
The creama oozed out from the very beginning and filled the shot glass.
