Espresso workshop

Well that was fun!!
11.00am Saturday Morning and  eleven of you got the sleeves rolled up and made your own espressos on a variety of  4 machines and grinders,  from domestic to prosumer through to full commercial.
Great to see so many interested people getting hands on experience with the kit and the coffee.

Lots of photos on the twitter @brewbarcafe   thanks to all of you for coming I had a blast. Look forward to the next one.

Let's face it, people don't buy home espresso machines to enjoy espresso, enjoying espresso is the happy accidental by product of their expensive purchase. Why they really buy expensive Italian espresso machines to sit on their expensive Italian marble worktops is... so they can make sweet foamy cappuccinos like they get in their local café. NEVER GONNA HAPPEN !

But why not, is the equipment wrong?, did they not spend enough hard earned cash? or did they throw away the instructions with the packaging?

Let's hope none of the above and we hope our second workshop on Saturday 9th July will give you all the chance to expand your knowledge and take you another step along the route to coffee nirvana.
