Ready to up your espresso game at home?
You are in the right place. This website is dedicated to perfecting the art of home espresso.
Whether you are totally new and just learning what an espresso, cappuccino, or latte is, or if you have been brewing at home for a few years and want to perfect your shot, this site can help you.
Week 1 - Home Espresso Machines (why are there so many types?)
Week 2 - Espresso Beans (are they different from coffee beans?)
Week 3 - Types of Drinks (and how to make them)
Week 4 - Advanced Brewing (fine tune your espresso shots)
The best place to start is to sign up for my four-week espresso e-mail course.
Over 5000+ people have gone through the course and I get emails every day from new friends who love what they’re learning and have questions or just want to swap recommendations for new beans or products to try.
I walk you through all the different espresso machines: semi-automatic, super automatic and lever, and talk about what each type has to offer.
We also go over everything you need to know about beans, including the difference between single origin and blends, roasting and the different coffee growing regions (there are more than you might think!).
Another topic we cover is the range of espresso drinks that you can make at home, like cappuccinos, lattes, ristrettos, lungos and even macchiatos.
In the last installment, I go over how to fine-tune your espresso game, why grinding is so important, how to froth milk so you achieve consistent micro bubbles and even the basics of latte art so you can impress your friends and family. I’m still working on latte art with my Breville, but I’m getting pretty good, or at least my wife thinks so 😉
I’ve kept each installment snappy and fun so they’re easily digestible each week and not overwhelming to read through.
I’m also pretty good at keeping up with the comments on my posts, so if you ever have specific questions, don’t hesitate to drop me a line!
