an espresso lover's blog

Very interesting thread about under/over dosage over on the barista guild board. During the SCAA, various top baristi took turns brewing espresso for the spectators and other baristi ("Jamming with the champs"). As they were all using the same type of machine, grinder and coffee, Trish got the bright idea to sample shots from Tim, Paul B and Robert T. All WBC champs. Very interesting to read about her impressions.

To be honest, I think it is very refreshing to see some discussions about brewing espresso. I am pretty fed up with all the latte art threads. Don't misunderstand me, latte art is a very nice trend as it means more people take care to steam milk correctly, and the drinks themselves look great, but I miss focusing on the core principles of espresso, making blends etc.
