The Coffee Master Class.

Grind. Tamper. Texture. Collapse. Words I never knew had anything to do with coffee.

How much do you spend a year on a coffee? I did the maths and worked out that I part with around $2000 per year to satisfy my caffeine fix. Get out your iPhone and do the same…it’s a little bit ouch!

Always wanted a machine at home (maybe Santa will grant my wish?) but wasn’t convinced I could get the same result as I do from my local barista. I was wrong – all you need is a good machine and lesson.

How-To: Cafe-Style Coffee At Home.
