    Default Greetings from Highbury & Islington

    Hi guys,

    I'm Sam. I fell in love with espresso at Monmouth around 2006, I still remember walking in and smelling the freshly roasted coffee and falling in love - those days the roastery was in the basement. I started my journey with Ms. Silvia (temperamental but capable of making very good espresso) and last year I bought a lever machine, the Elektra MCAL.

    Looking forward to getting involved with the community here.
