The Perfect Shot

 
Okay, I admit, I am an espresso snob. What would you expect, really? Growing up in the birthplace of Starbucks and all. My kids love it, even BEG me to make them Iced Mocha's. When we go to an ice cream shop, they are the ones asking for the coffee flavored ice cream. So, it goes without saying, being the snob that I am, it was hard for me to get used to making my own espresso. However, after two years, many different blends and grinds, three tampers, numerous tamping pressures, and one great machine, I can now officially say, I can make the perfect shot. It is a glorious day indeed.
