Finally took the plunge head first into an espresso machine. After much searching and on again off again desire to justify spending a lot of $$$ on coffee I picked up a Rancilio Silvia.
Its been great! Consistency has been the biggest challenge - who knew so much could go wrong with tamping?
But when I get it right the coffee is great!
So far some beans from Detour roasters in Ontario have been my favorite by far. Itching to try out some other nearby roasters.
