About Me:
I moved to Portland from Kentucky in 96 not knowing anything about coffee. I got a job as a barista and quickly moved into management. From there I decided to try something new and became a technician for a large company. After about five years I moved to an independent company that focuses on sales and service of espresso machines and related equipment and products.
About My Company:
Espresso Machine Experts is the largest espresso machine equipment service and sales company in Oregon and Southwest Washington. We sell the top brands in the espresso business, including La Marzocco, Nuova Simonelli, Rancilio, Franke, Schaerer , Rio and WMF.

We also service what we sell with 10 factory-trained technicians. Our technicians are also CUNO certified to install and maintain water filtration equipment. We keep an extensive inventory of espresso machine parts, with some 4000 individual parts in our database.

I had a rough week and was too busy to get back on my Marzocco.  I got the wiring in and roughly tested.  Now I'm finishing up the plumbing.  Will have the new bayonnette rings and groups caps done next.  The wiring was challenging because the last owner moved too many things around.  Honestly, some things I guessed on and it looks like it will work out nicely.…
