Hello, fellow Texans!
I'm a coffee newbie and new member from Keller, a suburb of Fort Worth. I've wanted an espresso machine for years, but found selecting one very confusing and intimidating. Having recently remodeled our kitchen, I started thinking about it again and found this site. With the help of the reviews, I've ordered a Baratza Virtuoso Preciso and a Gaggia Classic as a package from Whole Latte Love. I'm looking forward to learning how to use my new toys, and finding great places to get beans and to learn what good espresso is supposed to taste like!

OK... moved here to Houston (Briargrove neighborhood, 2 miles west of Galleria) from Oakland/San Francisco just a few weeks ago and I'm out of beans that I stockpiled because I knew it would take a bit of time to figure out the situation here... But now I've turned to Illy beans from the supermarket. Someone please help!
Are there good roasters in town? Good baristas/shops? There don't seem to be many recent posts in this forum, but I'm glad to see I'm not the only geek in town!
