HEY, CONGRATS!!!!! GREAT TO HEAR!
Check out the linked page above, good advice.
PLEASE DO ask any questions here, no question is too basic, we will have you lovin that machine and it's product ASAP! :D

Now, to echo a question above, what grinder do you have? A grinder is not optional with espresso, the grind MUST be adjusted for every time you pull shots, you must have fresh, less than two weeks from the day they were roasted  beans, ESP in espresso, the age of the beans is a very short life time, two weeks and you are on the down hill side of good, quickly heading into nasty.

As you can see I am not the speediest of repliers. Thank you both for the aswesome tips!

To answer your question regarding the grinder, at present I don't own one. So I've borrowed my dad's Rocky (since he's currently not drinking coffee... insane I know). I haven't had too much time to play around with my machine or the grinder due to a busy schedule, but I'll be doing a fair share of reading up on things before I boldly go. :D

Good to hear. When he asks for it back take a look at a matching Ascaso I mini grinder.  :) You may like.
