I'm diggin' that mirror pic RapidCoffee. I can't wait to break out the mirror and take more pics, but work has been brutal and I've only time to pull the shots and drink lately. I'll be back----------------
Tim - those shots were fantastic. The flow was amazingly smooth and even. Keep 'em coming! But please don't tell me they all turn out that well. I'll have to quit pulling espresso shots and go back to drip!
Jon - great sequence, really nice change of pace on this thread (and a lovely macchiato!).

Hey Jon, you didn't make the macchiato for her first?? ;)
Hahaha....just kidding....nice series of shots. That macchiato looks especially yummy. I was going to make one this morning myself, but I am OUT OF MILK!!! Arghhh...had to "settle" for straight shots...oh well...
By the way, I like your shirt....where did you get it?
Haha, that last picture is the best one!! Great photos Jon. Too bad you're a mechanical engineer (right?) because you'd be one awesome barista! Man, I'm getting really jelous of everyone's espresso machiens here. My little Silvia looks like a Tyco toy or some my-first-sony-espresso-machine, hehe. Well, it's not a Krups. Lately, I've been going to some really amazing espresso bars (9th street espresso in particular in Manhattan) and drooling over their Feama machines.
All you coffeegeeks wish me luck in getting this job monday, because if it works out, then I'd be making considerably more money than I ever had and soon enough I'm going to get a $1500 machine like what Chris' Coffee sells. Wish me luck!
First, nice sequence of pics! Now, on to that "2.5 oz." Either you are the smallest guy on the planet with the smallest head and hand - OR - that cup is well over 2.5 oz. I'm guessing the latter.
I still don't have a nekkid PF but did recently get a clear shot glass or two (to get my order to Espresso Parts >$100 for free shipping). This is a single shot made with a single basket. I was too slow in getting the digi cam ready and it is a bit past its prime (too blond):
