For such kind of projects, you need to consider EPSON ESC/POS protocol and it has its own command set. For normal text printing, you just need to:
1) initialize the printer (its buffers)
2) send character to its buffer
3) execute the print command to print the character
4) issue a paper cut command.
Couples of months ago i interfaced a similar printer but with serial port.

Here is the link for EPSON ESC/POS protocol.
