Cindy, I think you need to have someone study your Cremina in-depth to find out what you are doing wrong. I volunteer.

It is highly unlikely that you will get a better espresso with the single-serve machines than you are getting with your high end equipment. In fact, your shots should blow the single serve espresso shots away.

I could always use volunteers! :D

On that note, I think my main problem is everything I have learned is by message boards and YouTube. Until someone is standing next to me to show me what a proper grind looks like or tastes a good shot, I'm really flying blind. Chicago is having a meetup soon with some HB guys, and I am going to go. I really need to pick the brains of these experts and see what I'm doing right or wrong. It's really the only way I can take the next step.

I have put on hold the Nespresso shopping for now. Just ordered some fresh beans, and will try again and see what I can learn in Chicago.

If you're in Chicago, there are several Meinl coffee shops. See if you can sample some of their coffees and espressos.

^^^ Jealous! We used to live in Chicago. Sadly, this was before my days of coffee geekery. Have fun, and congrats on the purchase. Btw, which capsules did you try/like?

Arpeggio has become my go-to capsule for first-thing-in-the morning "poor man's" cortados (milk is microwaved rather than steamed) when we're trying to get my son out the door on time.

Cindy, what's the latest? How did the HB get-together go?

Glad to hear it! So your Cremina-spoiled palate doesn't revolt against the taste of those Nespresso shots, I gather. Nice.

I've been to a few Baltimore HB gatherings and have consistently enjoyed them.

In honesty, now that I have finally experienced good shots, the Nespresso can really hold it's own. I have to admit I was very surprised when I first sampled some shots at Williams Sonoma. Very impressive indeed!! :wink:
