Brewing your own espresso and grinding your own coffee at home is but the tip of the iceberg.
Welcome to the world of home-roasting!
(which is what people are talking about when they mention heat guns and poppers)
You can purchase green coffee beans here at coffee snobs and roast them yourself at home using something as simple and inexpensive as a heat gun or popper. You will find that this siite is one of the largest home-roasting knowledgebases in the universe, its members enthusiasm bordering on psychosis ;D
Once you freshly roast your own coffee at home you will NEVER go back.
As far as you choice of Rocky/Silvia goes, I dont think you can put a foot wrong there and there are a large number of users of the Rocky/Silvia combo on this site that will back this up.
Here you will also find plenty of technical advice about machines, grinders, coffee, roasting etc.
So once again, welcome!
