I've learned 4 important factors; 1) the bean, 2) the grind, 3) the water, and 4) you - your skill
Lots of variables. It's worth taking the time to figure out the 'variables' and get a great espresso.
In the last year I have borrowed many Coffee books from the local library and studied like I never did in high school!

Good Luck,

This is so true - in order to achieve a good knowledge base of espresso coffee you need to start at the bottom - which is what I did in the late 80's -- with a steam powered toy -- I figured out the limitations and how to foam milk -- which was something that the steam powered toy was good at.

Coffee is a journey, not a destination.
