Sure no problem but first thing. This is a forum and not a cell phone so you do not need to speak TXT here.

Seeing that your 16 I would probably recommend dumping $60 Wally World for a cheap espresso machine that you can trash while learning the basics.

The thermometer is used for people to know when to shut off the steam arm. Ideally you would want to steam the milk up to 150F - 160F. After 160F you will start burning the milk. I personally can eat sliced jalapeños like M&M's so I really can't tell the milk is burnt till around 175F - 180F. But there are a lot of people who can.

When steaming your milk shut the steam arm down around 150 - 155. Your milk will continue to rise around 160 +- a few degrees.

Hello,

I feel silly....I didn't realize that you were speaking TXT in your posts. I thought you were from another country, and you didn't know the English language very well. I'm glad CCafe cleared that up for me.

If you go to www.amazon.com and type the words espresso machines into the search box, you will see all sorts of machines listed at a variety of prices. You can then read about the machines and compare the features and prices on the Internet. You may want to go to a local Target, Kohls, WalMart, Sears, etc. and take a look at the machines in person. I noticed that some are really light weight and cheap looking, but some look pretty decent for low-priced home machines.

The inexpensive machines won't last forever, but they'll give you fairly good service as you explore the world of coffee. After all, this may be a phase that you'll outgrow in a few months, or it may turn into a life-long passion, and by then maybe you'll be ready to buy a more expensive espresso machine.

Good luck.

Rose

Murtle545 - I also began drinking coffee every day when I was your age. I adopted the routine of getting up early to have a cup of coffee with my Dad every morning. I'm glad that I did, otherwise I wouldn't have many memories of him (being sober).

I can't help but to offer you some advice regarding your writing skills. You must know that communication is very important in this world and how we communicate can sometimes determine the outcome of a major crisis or a misunderstanding. Please, practice using punctuation. Effectively getting your thoughts and opinions down in writing can be quite challenging and also very rewarding.

Cheers kid. :wink:

Oh -

I was looking deeper into what CCafe was really trying to tell us.

After meditating on it for a bit, I was coming to a conclusion that he's probably trying to reach out to us from the fifth dimension..... that maybe he needed some help or something.

But, I think you're right. It's probably just a "public education" thing. :D

I'm assuming X$ rw$v$lly dy$n’t z$ndw$rstv$nd v$nythx$ng thv$t's bw$x$ng sv$x$d x$n thx$s thrw$v$d = I really don't understand anything that's being said in this thread.

Please no more Davec, I know its all fun and games some times but this constitutes a waste of server space.
