Ever wondered what would happen if you took a load of Baristas, fresh from a long caffeinated shift, gave them some more coffee (and maybe a beer or two) and let them loose in a room full of espresso machines? Add music, bbq & bratwurst and you pretty much have an Extract Coffee Barista Social.
Turns out that this concoction leads first to early beer drinking, tentative espresso making, and a couple of braver latte artists. And before long, then evolves into a full blown blind-folded, left-handed, flat white making extravaganza. Complete with speed rounds.
Bristol’s got a good crop of Baristas these days, so last Friday night we invited some of them to relax and unwind and make coffee away from the front line. It was a great opportunity to showcase some of our newer, more outrageous coffees and test drive some new machinery. And with the coffee community thriving, a chance to swap notes, nightmares and niggles.
Thank you to all who came, and made this a great success. It is sure to be the first of many, now we know what a recipe for a good time looks like. The only thing we need to make it even better – more dancing.
