The frozen whiskey ball is a total hit 8)

Simple idea as ratio, input/output dose, and what tastes like bad espresso can be explained and understood. With help of a scale, and a stop watch, the initial idea of what to look for and how to meet them isn't hard.
Could you explain this to my wife? Because I've figured out espresso equipment is a lot cheaper than a divorce. :lol:

And I'll steal part of a quote from my Dad about cribbage:
My wife told me espresso isn't a matter of life and death. I replied "I agree, it's far more important than that."

I already had a hobby, photography. I thought that was expensive until I got into home espresso making. "Luckily" I'm still in the accessories frenzy wich with the help of AliExpress are pretty cheap. Every time I say I'm done something new comes up and I drop another £5 - £10.
