Coffee Tips (Espresso)

Discussing using home prosumer espresso machines with a co-worker and wrote up a summary of what I have learned over the years.

The espresso machine I use now is the Breville Cafe Roma: https://www.amazon.ca/Breville-Caf%C3%A9-Espresso-Machine- ESP8XL/dp/B0002VAFWA/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1528408112&sr=8-1&keywords=cafe+roma

The frother we are using is the Brewberry Electric Milk Frother & Heater, Stainless Steel: https://www.amazon.ca/Bre wberry-Electric-Frother-Heater-Stainless/dp/B01GQQZ64G/ref=sr17?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1528408159&sr=1-7
