We will explain what a well made espresso consist of. An introduction in freshly roasted coffee beans and their origin. Understand the variables that determine the extraction time of your espresso drink. For example setting the grinder (‘dialing in’) and tamping the ground coffee correctly. We will convince you of cleaning your tools & equipment vigorously.
