[Homeroast] espresso roast profiles

I will sometimes roast lighter for espresso with thoughts of cutting the
shot with steamed cream or as a component in a blend. Even after two weeks
of rest most single origin coffees I've tried do not work as espresso for my
tastes. mcKoffee mentioned having some success with lighter roasts but I do
not recall the particulars. 

In my opinion being able to minimize the amount of crema production during
the pull is a great advantage of a manual lever.

Yes that's it. For a while I was doing it and noticed an improvement. Now
when I remember I just remove a little and stir. It seems,to me, just
stirring the shot improves it. Anyone else removing the crema?
