    @MediumRoastSteamgot me thinking about my first proper machine and gave me a lot to ponder. I realised how much coffee really is a passion of mine, and I am prepared to spend double my original budget to get a machine that will last a long time! I have ordered a Niche Zero but it's not due...
  6. Milk techniques, troubleshooting & how to's
    Has anyone tried milk from The Estate Dairy? They were ostensibly set up to produce the best possible milk for coffee and focused originally on supplying cafes, but you can now get their milk - both whole and semi-skimmed - online. It seems to be a blend of 80% Jersey and 20% Holstein milk...

    Hello all! So, I'm off to Glastonbury on Saturday and my machine is going with me for the first time. It's going to be easiest to take UHT milk to use which I've not tried steaming before. After having a dig around the forum it seems to be entirely plausible, but I haven't got time to try...

    I'm a brewing kind of person and never got addicted to espresso. My wallet and SO has thanked me many times. Some time ago I thought everyone making espresso at home were mostly drinking the espresso clean without anything added. Then after joining some forums I realized many make lattes...

    Hi guys! I've seen images of these very specific style of coffee cups but I can't seem to find if they have a certain name or where to source them. I found this image of some on etsy but they are tiny for espresso whereas I am looking for a latte size. Thanks,

    Hi guys, I'm looking for a budget coffee machine setup for espresso and milk drinks, with somewhere around £250 - £350 to spend. I was thinking of a used Sage Barista Express, but I've heard the grinder can be affected by the heat of the cup warmer, which isn't great. I also like to experiment...

    I saw this video of ChrisBaca where he has gifted to him some really nice jugs. I have been using some Dailyart jugs for my milk and they are nice and did not cost much. I have a birthday coming up. I wondered if other people have tried more expensive jugs and if they make any difference at...

    Basically I've been using a capsule system for years. Capsules we're fine for me but with guests it's definitely time for something new as those become rather expensive. I'm looking to change to a bean to cup system. I mainly drink latte or cappuccino so the focus should be more towards...

  17. Barista Skills for the home enthusiast
    I've been practising for a good while though I only make maybe 1 or 2 lattes a week, sometimes less as I drink my coffee black. Here's tonight's, a simple heart. I have several pics on my tumblr of previous pours and some videos too.

    I see you can buy double wall espresso glasses and double wall latte glasses, do these keep your drinks warmer than regular glasses that have been pre-warmed? My espresso glass is only used to pull the shot, we are not drinking espresso at the moment, only latte's. I have a £1.50 standard...
