  1. I tend to only drink espresso during the week, but treat myself to the occasional flat white at the weekends, particularly when friends are over. One milk brand that is very popular in many speciality coffee shops in London is the Estate Dairy. It has a really creamy, rich texture and really enhances the flavours of the coffee I find. However, it is hard to get for the average consumer. Given that there seems to be a consensus over what bottled water to buy for your coffee...I wondered if there was a similar consensus over the best milk? What fat / protein content should I be
  2. Has anyone got any tips for achieving a good micro foam with the DTP? I'm just not quite getting it right?
  3. With 2018 bearing down on us, who has made some coffee related resolutions for the year ahead? I’m going to work on my latte art and explore the world of pour-overs!
  4. the cafe clear out continues.......... We used these a fair bit at first before moving onto the Barista Gear stuff at the cafe. Lots of people love the spouts on these, these ones are the competition spouts. Price is £20 for the 600ml, £15 each for the 350ml and £5 shipping.
  5. Need we say more? Classic Motta jugs in 75cl and 35cl. Light use in the past but not for a while. Found these when going through some cupboards in the cafe. Price is £35 for the pair, which includes shipping.
  6. For sale my beloved Izzo Alex Duetto MkII. This dual boiler machine is a beauty and in fact a beast. Bought second hand and in immaculate condition in 2016 and had previously been bought new from Bella Barista (2010 production model). Selling as I'm not allowed more machines than kids, and I have broken that rule already. I've used it daily set to turn on the morning for 1 espresso and 1 flat white, so looking at a total heat up time of 2hr per day. The machine has operated flawlessly. Strictly only bottle water fed (Volvic and Stretton Hills) and have descaled once every 6 months and ba
  7. Finally got my first bit of ‘latte art’ this morning. I know its no where near perfect but it’s the first time I’ve managed to get microfoam, I think I’ve previosuly been adding far too much air and it’s been like having an ice cream on the top, thicker than cappuccino foam. I was that excitedI made the missus come and have a look before a dared to move it haha.
  8. Thought it would be helpful to start a thread with tips and video clips to help members struggling with latte art. Here's a starter from Chris Baca - catch more on his Youtube channel
  9. 280ml cup brand new Does not come with saucer posted in well padded box £9 delivered no lower offers on this please
  10. As mentioned in another post I recently swapped my previous manual setup with a Sage Creatista pod machine so the family can also enjoy the coffee fun. I've been determined to get the best out of it (I'm not a fan of pod coffee) using the latest gadgets and gizmos and I've finally nailed it - granted the milk is a bit loose but I think one more setting up and it should be fine. If anyone is interested I've done this with the following kit: Rave Christmas blend dark beans (freshly roasted) Rhinowares hand grinder on the finest setting WayCap stainless steel reusable pods
  11. At the moment I just enjoy watching and it's always a great atmosphere. I'm just wondering how to hear about the ones you can go and watch in the UK?
  12. Hi everyone, I tend to make two lattes / flat whites every morning, and I steam the requisite amount of milk. I've managed to improve my steaming technique to the point where I can get enough of the right 'wet paint'-consistency milk for latte art on the first drink, but by the time I hit the second, I'm left with a load of froth at the bottom of the pitcher which is only good for a cappucino. Is this state of milk normal, or poor technique on my part? I don't want to be throwing away a ton of milk every morning if I can possibly avoid it, I'd like to use everything I have in the pitch
  13. While looking for inspiration for the grand final of the Latte Art Comp I stumbled across leekangbin91 on Insta. Just wow!! Not sure I’d want to drink the results but it’s pretty impressive. So . . . tulip, rosetta and drawing art on coffee - all in half an hour. Blindfolded!
  14. Hey all! so having moved to temp digs while I sort out a new house, I stupidly packed away my trusty rattleware pitcher. bought a cheap one off amazon from their recommended list and it’s rubbish.... perfectly fine size and thickness but the spout is squiffy and doesn’t pour straight. Makes art impossible. so if I’m gonna go spend some money on another, can anyone recommend anything in particular? small 12oz size ideally, only used for flat whites.
  15. I got this non-stick matte black Europa for Christmas '17, but I ended up selling my espresso machine in March '18, so it only had minor use and has sat boxed up in the cupboard since then. As such, it is in excellent condition and was always cleaned and looked after when I did use it. It's a pleasure to use and I felt like it took my latte art to the next level! I would like £18 posted.
  16. This year there will be two categories: Amateur and Professional. Definition of professional means working as or has worked as barista. You can only enter one category. Prize for amateur category will be a prestigious CFUK trophy and if that alone isn't enough to bring anyone out in a cold sweat, you will also have £100.00 to spend at any of our forum sponsors. Prize for professional category will be a year's membership of S.C.A. If there is an insufficient number of entrants for the professional category, i.e. less than four, the prize will be vouchers to the value of £30.00.
  17. I've seen posts online about a Barista called Mason Salisbury who is doing multicoloured latte art using food dye. Frankly I don't have any interest in drinking a multicoloured latte but the posts have me intrigued for 2 reasons. 1) I just want to know how its done as looking at the vids it doesn't seem to be simply pouring dye into the milk and 2) I see it as a cheaper way to practice latte art then to waste coffee, as for me I want to improve but don't like to burn through beans and not drink the coffee. The link to what I'm on about is below, would appreciate if anyone can show me how its d
  18. Next Thursday, evening 28th April my roasting company, Bean Smitten is co-hosting a coffee tasting event with Falcon Speciality (Coffee Merchants) and the Black Dog Cafe in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. It would be good to see any local Coffee Forums members - its totally free to attend In the lead up to the event, The Black Dog will be running Bean Smitten Classic Blend in place of their regular, Monmouth Coffee. On the evening itself, Falcon will give a short talk on speciality coffee to be followed by a cupping of 8-10 different coffees, all newly landed. We will round off with a very i

  20. Congratulations on reaching the final. Here are the rules. You will have 60 minutes to produce and upload three pics featuring: - one Rosetta - one tulip - one freestyle - no drawing tool can be used. The two Rosettas, two tulips and two freestyle pictures will then be made into three separate polls and forum members will then be able to vote on which of the two is the best. Whoever has the highest number of votes wins that pairing. The winner of the 2016 Latte Art Competition will be whoever is the overall winner of each of the three pairings, i.e. has won two o
