Exactly. I brew all of my espresso as coffee first, simply because I drink brewed coffee daily and pull an afternoon espresso shot just a few time per week. So I shop for coffee accordingly, with an emphasis on brewing. But I love it when a coffee I'm sort of "meh" about brewed wows as espresso.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I will learn something from doing this. I guess I will have to pull out a spare grinder and the vac pot and see what I am and am not capturing in my espresso.
