This book was a nice and easy read. It took me all of 30 minutes to complete. For the price I'd say it was spot on.

I actually have one of the lever armed espresso machines from La Pavoni, very beautiful machine hand made in Italy. But making espresso like they do in Milan is a lot harder than they make it look. I was surprised to read that Mr Verona (the author) actually mentions this machine in the book. Lever armed espresso machines are hit and miss at the best of times, but I'm getting a few more hits now with the thick black liquid.

If you haven't invested in an espresso machine yourself yet, you should read this book first. He describes the importance of choosing the correct grinder to go with the espresso machine, something that many people miss. With a bit of luck you won't need to spend any extra money for your espressos if you already have a good grinder.

The author also goes into depth about finding quality espresso beans and keeping them fresh. There are also a few other little tricks that I've never read or heard of from anywhere else. An interesting read!

I bought a new Gaggia espresso machine two weeks ago and the espresso quality was hit and miss. So I decided to take a look at this little book.

Well I'm very glad I did! It's a short book, very easy to read, just what you'd expect. There is no filler content, just how to make great espresso broke into short sections. I'm happy that I won't need to spend any more money in order to make use of what I already have.

Recommended!

I'm so glad that I bought this book. I was about to go and buy an expresso machine, but this book stopped me wasting my money on a machine that probably wasn't all that good. Instead I will get a much cheaper machine and a more expensive grinder. This combination should make me a much better brew.

There is lots of good information in here, particularly for newbies to express like me. And the recipes at the end will come in really handy.

I thoroughly recommend this book.

This book really makes good on some of the myths around espresso. Namely that expensive espresso machines are better! That's not necessarily the case. The most important things are the small details which this book mentions in nice detail.

A short book, an easy read and recommended!
