Espresso 1.0 dropped today, and with a point release comes new users. There is a serious lack of documentation for Espresso currently so I thought I'd make a quick (or not so quick as it turns out) screencast for getting new users up to speed on what Espresso offers.

It's my first screen cast so I do apologize for the "uhms" and "errs", but I hope some of you find it useful.

- Note: At the end of the screencast I say stick with Espresso, and it’ll get better. I want to clarify that, do NOT buy Espresso if it is not what you think is worth paying for AS IS. Stick with the trial as long as possible to get a good feel for the work flow. It’s really rough around the edges, but it’s got some great potential.
