1. Drink more espresso. Here’s a great infographic to show you what’s what as far as espresso drinks go.
2. Buy fresh roasted coffee, buy it often (every week or two), and grind it at home with a burr grinder. Here’s a few places to score some black gold:

Coffee Company – Dallas
Mawker Coffee – Dallas Farmers Market (Shed #2)
Addison Coffee Roasters – Addison
Update, almost forgot: White Rock Coffee – Dallas (thanks darley)
3. Learn. You may drink it everyday, but do you really know anything about it? While how the name “Americano” is an insult would go great here, I’m going with Espresso Porn. Other reading material:
