Bob: “Here, try this cup of coffee from Nicaragua.”
Jim sips it and says, “Wow! All the way from Nicaragua and it is still hot!”

Coffee Not War

Coffee culture in Britain is booming!

Making coffee for fun and being a skilled barista are 2 different things: it is a real job!

Yes, there is a real difference between your instant coffee and the fresh beans correctly roasted to deliver the perfect brew.

So many places are hiring and opening coffee shops but it is not about having someone behind the counter pouring hot drinks – it is about having the right person with the right knowledge and able to mix milk, coffee, chocolate. Afterall, a coffee is exactly like a cocktail: dosage is important.

When stepping behind the counter there are a few things to be aware of such as the coffee machine is not a toy and can be the source of accidents in left unattended or incorrectly serviced.

When you think that a percolator is actually a big water boiler with a steam jet…it could mean incredible burns and an increase of injury claims if badly or little trained. Employers are actually responsible to hire but to train their staff…which seems too often forgotten!

So remember that operating a percolator or even taking that job is not about turning or pressing buttons, but also making sure that all the pressure level is correct.

There is a real trend and passion in coffee tasting, demo, fairs and even….championships.

London got this “je ne sais quoi” to have the minimal, not pretentious and very friendly setup. Their coffee is remarkable with the latte art (milk art in other words) skills as well which is always impressive when done and handed over the counter.

As previously mentioned, the syphon is a real technique to experiment see and taste. For this matter, same safety conditions as it is all glass, pipes, boiling water too.
