Getting into home espresso has been fun, it’s a rabbit hole like most fun things. And with rabbit holes it’s best to decide how far you’re willing to fall in before really starting down that hole. For me, it was an used Rancilio Silvia modded with a temperature PID controller and a refurbished Baratza Vario. At this level it’s definitely possible to get good espresso and latte art if one tries, gets lucky, and practices… it’s a good balance. Making one or maximum of two drinks most days is nearly not enough practice especially considering missed practice due to travel. But today was a lucky day, I got the best pour I’ve managed and it’s exciting to see what’s possible at the lower/est end of prosumer equipment.
