I don't have an espresso machine and am curious how they work. I have some specific questions - I'm coming at this from a DIY perspective.

On double boiler machines I notice that there are two heating elements. Are they on at the same time? What types of wattages are common? If I had a double boiler machine, should I be concerned about tripping my circuit breaker?

What pressures are achieved in the pressure chamber for a steam rod? Are these normally controlled for pressure or temperature?

What is the most common and popular user interface for enthusiast groups? Could it be the E61 group?
