Creating the perfect espresso is also much harder than it looks. There’s a magic formula founded by the Italian’s that dictates a ‘60ml in 25 seconds’ rule, which brings you just what you want. Achieving that took practice while I floundered over the portable filter, double and single basket, knee bending tampering and desired consistency.
What a fun evening that equipped me with more knowledge than I couldn have hoped for. From now on my coffee orders will be based on insight and understanding, not to mention a new found expectation and mountain of appreciation.
These are the previous times I’ve spoken about my obvious love for Tribe Coffee Roasting.
Pop by and place an order. Time the pouring process of the espresso machine and listen for the sound of paper tearing as your cappuccino milk gets warmed. Should you wish to do a coffee course yourself, contact Jake at e-mail and make sure you stay in touch with them on Facebook and Twitter.
