I'd feel more like a barista if I could figure out how to decorate with the steamed milk. mine never turns out like the ones at the cafes.

nice article, not sure i agree with it all though! i much prefer the french press than a farty cone that i then have to dispose of, whilst the coffee rinds, i can throw in the compost bin, no problems! each to their own for taste. i prefer a deep blend, nutty in flavour. it's much better if you can support your local coffee shops, we have one in our town centre [in wrexham, wales, uk] and she sells beans of all varieties and at a good price

Interesting and delightful. Most of the time at home I drink tea but on occasion will make coffee. Good tips. Remember my Mom making coffee in the old style percolator.
