Detailed Commentary

I tried and tried but could not get crema on my coffee despite many different grind settings.
I could not get to steam very well and make fluffy milk.
I have 5+ years of experience with my Brasilia machine where I could effortlessly, after practice, do bothl the above 4 times out of 5 so I don't think my technique is faulty.
