    Hello Coffee Forums UK!

    As developer and manufacturer of the ESPAZZOLA we want to get your opinionated feedback on our tool to replace these old brushes for cleaning group-heads.

    To make things easier for you we offer a discount for forum members (see below).

    The ESPAZZOLA is especially designed to hook into the grouphead like a portafilter. There, we utilize the hot water from the machine to rinse thoroughly while the flexible membrane (the semitransparent inset) adapts to all inner surfaces and acts like a brush in all places at once.

    See this short video to get an idea:

    How often are people drinking fresh coffee?
    It seems recent years has seen a hug influx of people drinking fresh coffee right at home. Is it that they enjoy waking up on the Saturday morning to a smell of the fresh brew around the home.
    Or is it that they need the early morning pick me up. Given the amount of coffee people drink, this certainly seems to be the case.

    From the results of the survey, it’s no surprise that 66% of respondents said they drink coffee every day.
    3% of those, said they drink several cups of coffee a day.

    What brewing methods are people using?
    It seems, every year there’s a new way to brew fresh coffee at home. Whether it has a big impact on the high street coffee shops is yet to be seen.
    Here are the brewing options that were given and percentage of people who prefer that method:

    • Espresso Machine (29%)
    • Cafetiere(21%)
    • Aeropress (13%)
    • Bean to Cup (12%)
    • Filter coffee (9%)
    • Stove Top(6%)
    • Other(4%)
    • Perculator (2%)
    • French Press (2%)
    • V60 (1%)

    Within the above results, there are a couple of caveats. Some brewing methods are written differently but mean the same thing.
    For example…

    • A French Press is the same as a cafetiere.
    • A Perculator is the same as a stove top.

    It doesn’t change the results drastically but is interesting to see how people refer to each style of making coffee.

    Because your coffee beans are stale!

    The freshness of your beans is the key to enjoying an excellent cup of coffee every time.
    Supermarket stocked beans are generally stale by the time you grind them whatever their marketing department may say.
    The problem with getting hold of fresh roasted beans is that they are expensive.
    One of the market leaders in fresh bean subscriptions charges £7 for a 250g bag of roasted beans!!!!!
    The cost of those beans raw? More like £2!

    As paid up members of the coffee geek club we knew there must be a better way. We wanted to buy fresh green beans and roast them at home, keeping our coffee habit cheap but having fun along the way experimenting and taking our coffee connoisseurship to the next level.
    But guess what, coffee roasting machines turn out to be insanely expensive, or just plain rubbish (trust us we have tested LOTS!)

    This is where Home Roast was born. We have worked with our partner in china to bring the Home Roast smart to market.
    Our aim was simple; an affordable and quality home roasting machine that will enable coffee lovers to roast their own green beans and take their coffee connoisseurship to the next level, just like we dreamt of.
    We are now enjoying fresh, smooth, not bitter shots of espresso and have fallen in love with coffee more than ever before.

    After months of work with our supplier we have now have a unit in the UK and an order in place for 200 more. We have developed an app to make roasting coffee as simple as making your morning toast, but also allowing you to develop and explore your own roasting style and preferences.

    Pending a successful Kickstarter campaign, we are currently aiming to have devices delivered to you by April 2018.

    Kickstarter OFFER ONE: 10 Available @ only £399
    · Brand new Home Roast smart coffee Roaster
    · 6-month subscription to Home Roast green coffee beans of your choice

    A New & Exciting Saturday Morning

    Adams + Russell have proudly teamed up with the owner of to bring the people of Liverpool a Free brew school.
    Adams + Russell, based in Birkenhead, started the brew school. It was designed to give the people in the local district and surrounding areas something different on a Saturday morning.
    The first part of the brew school gives visitors an insight into how fresh beans are roasted, where the green beans come from and the amazing smells you get from the different beans.
    The second part explains how to make great coffee using different brewing methods, including the Aeropress, the Cafetiere and the stove-top espresso maker.

    Coffee Blog Owner Delighted
    Matt, from Adams+Russell got in touch with Kevin at coffee blog to ask him to get involved. Kevin was delighted to be invited down to the roastery and help out with such a great event.
    Kevin, brought his video camera and expert knowledge and got involved with the customers at every opportunity.
    Following the brew school, Kevin wrote a detailed article on his website.
    The article touches on how he noticed the customers were helped out at every opportunity. Whether it was with choosing from the shelves or having a go at the brewing methods. The team were on-hand to help.
    Kev titled the article Visit to Adams & Russell Coffee Roasters. He also said:
    “The brew schools they offer are brilliant for anyone wanting to increase their knowledge on coffee. How it’s grown and processed, how it’s roasted (you get to watch them roasting) and lessons on the main brewing methods.”

    “It has changed the way I drink coffee for good”
    As part of the brew school, the visitors gave feedback on their experience. One lady said that after seeing the Aeropress brewing method, she would change the way she brews up every morning.
    It was also mentioned by a member of the A+R team that once they started using the Aeropress, they never went back.

    Another one of the visitors said:
    “Look no further than Adams + Russell. You can visit the roasters for free and they will welcome you in with open arms. You will be able to try their espresso. You can even take home a taste of their coffee of the month.”

    A third person said:
    “I just think the smell is AMAZING”.

    Buying coffee is made simple in the showroom
    Adams + Russell Coffee roasters have created a showroom at the front of their roasting house. The general public can come in and see the beans being roasted. Their accessories are placed carefully in the front showroom and the choice of 52 choices are roasted to order.
    Tristan Bartlett is the business development manager at Adams and Russell. He says the brew school is a great way for the general public to come and learn about coffee. They don’t even need to own a cafe. On a Saturday morning when you’re looking for something to do, think about coming to the roasters. You’ll most definitely be surprised how much there is to learn.
