  1. New to the forum and looking for recommendations for good quality espresso beans that can be bought over the counter in Central London. I usually buy beans for my Aeropress from Monmouth but have never tried their espresso blend. I've just dug the Silvia out of storage so I'm looking to get back into the espresso habit. Are the Monmouth espresso beans any good?
  2. I've just begun working at a new cafe, where - it has to be said - they really don't know how to use an espresso machine. It's a real shame, because they use Monmouth beans, which are ludicrously expensive, yet the current barista steams the milk boiling hot before pouring it over a poorly made espresso in a bucket-sized cup. Their standard is one shot per coffee. To achieve this, they use a two-way spout, often wasting the spare shot of espresso. On my first shift there, a single shot of coffee would run so fast that it would almost spill out of a 2oz espresso measuring glass. I imm
  3. Hi guys, A quick question about free on loan coffee equipment here in the UK. I'm Australian and have come from an establishment in Melbourne where we got through 60-70kg+ of coffee a week, and our wholesaler supplied my employers with everything: Barista training, tamp, grinder, cups, custom painted La Marzocca FB/80 (everything!) Now I'm doing my own thing, targeting a small space in Hackney, London and I'm trying to establish which boutique suppliers might offer a free on loan machine/grinder and how many kg's I might need to get through to interest them. If not, whether an
  4. I've become a bit set in my ways with my coffee use. So I would like some advice. Currently I use James Gourmet, Monmouth, Hasbean and sometimes Square Mile. I've also taken out subscriptions with blankbox and pact blankbox in a hope that they can get me started with new roasters. I have also used Union, Extract, Pumphreys, Ousburn Coffee Company, Grumpy Mule. I am aware I need to give Rave a shot and Londinium. Who else?
  5. Today I embarked on a coffee crawl around London with my wife as well as Chris Weaver and Ash Porter, to try a number of new establishments and show them what London has to offer. Our itinerary was; Milk Bar (Bateman Street) Fernandez & Wells (Beak Street) Kaffeine (Great Titchfield Street) Lantana (Charlotte Place) Beas of Bloomsbury (Theobald Street) First up was Milk Bar, a regular haunt and a chance to grab brunch (their scrambled eggs and bacon was divine). The home made baked beans looked appetising too... Milk Bar uses Squaremile coffee, ground with a Mazzer
  6. Hi there, my name is Charlie. I've been passionate about coffee for over 5 years, since my travels in Australia. I trained as a barista 5 years ago in london with Gaggia, and have since done a course with the london school of coffee. I work as a restaurant manager and get to put my barista skills to use on a daily basis. However, i constantly daydream about doing it for myself and setting up a 'proper' coffee shop. I live in West Sussex and there is definately a gap in the market (we only have the usual chains in a very busy market town centre) I've seen the change in the Uk coffee scene ove
