If you are new to espresso it can be difficult to get started. What grind should I use? How should I distribute and tamp the coffee? How can I tell what went wrong, and what should I do about it? Here is an example image showing what to look for in a good pull of espresso along with the explanation of why this is a good pull. Of course, there are examples of bad pulls as well, along with detailed explanations of what went wrong and what to do about it. There are plenty of images in the guide which will assist you in making wonderful espresso in a short time.
A quality appliance deserves care, and the 1st in Coffee guide takes you through the steps of the basic maintenance chores to help keep your Silvia running smoothly for years to come. Here is an image showing the removal of the shower screen for cleaning.
Rocky owners are also taken care of. Or guide covers just about anything you need to know from proper operation and adjustment to cleaning chores.
If some of this sounds technical, do not worry. The entire guide is written in plain English, with the new owner who has never made espresso before in mind. It walks you through, step by step, "from beginning to espresso," and more.
