I just ordered the Gaggia Accademia Espresso Machine today and could not be more excited. After a year of drooling over it, I finally convinced myself to just get it! I want to make a great first shot...any suggestion/tips? I know not to use overly oily beans, but do you have a specific brand/roast that is a great starting point? Also, just wanted to give customer service a "great job" award for the day. I made an error while putting in my credit card information and when I re-entered it I forgot to re-enter my coupon code. One call to customer service and the coupon was applied! No hassle! How fantastic!
