Or the coffee and its roast. Sometimes it's the raw materials. Great technique can only hide the defects so much while striving to bring out the best.

It took me a decade to realize and then admit that!

Espresso is a great tool to assist in learning how to taste. Start by paying attention to the start, the middle, and the finish. Dividing it mentally that way will get you started. I remember a really great shot that had an amazing finish that lasted many minutes. In 2006 (15 years ago!) I wrote this article: "A Beginners' Guide to Tasting Espresso." I had forgotten all about it until I read your post.
