    I watch a lot of YouTube videos to try and gain some knowledge, a lot of it is espresso related. I see a lot of different extraction weights, and timings. I've seen people say longer extraction, more time - though that's a minority. What's much more confusing for me is the ratio/terminology...
  2. Gaggia Forum
    Hello, I recently entered the magic world of home-espresso: now, I come from Napoli and I live in Geneva, so this basically is an attempt to survive the lack of proper coffee shops here and get something similar to my place's "caffè". So, I bought a 2015 Gaggia Classic, a set of...

    I've been fortunate to play with this coffee on both a commercial machine and through 2 different types of home espresso machines and have managed to achieve similar results each time. A whiff of almonds on the nose and touch of caramel as the shot makes its way across the tongue - think nutty...

    As an uneducated barista a few ago, i was keen on my Americanos, but after being employed at Coffee Aroma, i was steadily persuaded to enjoy espressos, realising that bastardising the coffee with boiling water was a wrong turn. However, I have frequented with Lattes and Cappuccinos, but I have...
