This past weekend I used my new La Pavoni espresso machine several times. I was playing with grind and tamp and pulls.

I had like one successfully shot.

The machine is easy to use. It heats the water quickly. Everything works– or seems to.

I think I've narrowed down my issues to either (a) too coarse a grind or (b) not enough tamp.

The grinder I have is a cuisenart burr Grinder set to finest. It should be ok.

I may also not have put enough coffee in the holder thing.

It's gonna take me several more tries to get this right– but I like the manual pull thing. It feels more like I'm "making" the espresso.

    Oh – and some advice. If you want knock out espresso do the following:
    1) Buy green dried beans, either Arabica or Robusto.
    2) Buy a cheap Stir Crazy Popcorn machine. About $20 on amazon
    3) Roast 4 to 8 oz. of beans for 25 minutes for Arabica, longer for Robusto

    You’ll never, ever buy pre-roasted beans again.
