Date made available: Mmm d, YYYY
Built with: Xojo 2019R2 (64-bit Windows and macOS)

No software code is complete without “killer” specifications and documentation. The documentation includes a 3-page overview syllabus and a unique 4-page user guide documentation in newspaper format:
Creating this tutorial took inspiration from my beautiful wife and lots (and lots) of espressos (The Break espresso bar in Missoula, MT)
