Is there a barista inside you?

It has been proven to make you smarter and increase physical performance but those aren't the reasons most of us consume an average of 2 cups of coffee a day. It's because it tastes amazing!

Once you start experimenting and enjoying the world of coffee you can get lost in the roast, blend and strength scales. Convenience was key so a lot of instant coffee was consumed but now using ground or grinding your own with our grinder can be worth the little extra effort.

If you've secretly always wanted to be a barista, use the funny nozzle to froth the milk and attempt to make a cool pattern on top of the foam, our coffee machine means you can enjoy some role play escapism for a few minutes in the comfort of your own house or office. You just need to grab your preferred granule strength, some milk and unleash the full 15 bar of pressure from the machine for a DIY coffee that a barista would be proud of. 

Top tip- our coffee grinder can be used for nuts and spices as well coffee beans. 
 
There is power stored up in those little beans, enough to fuel buses. This isn't something most of us can contribute to but don't throw the ground out as they make a great addition to your compost or if you are feeling crafty, a novel way of using up coffee beans is making an aroma ball. Seriously (seen on the internet) put old ground in the end of a doubled up pair of tights and tie off. Christmas is round the corner so this could be a handmade Eco gift to any coffee addict you know, if you decorate it correctly it will look like a Christmas pudding! This coffee ball is also apparently effective as a deodoriser in a smelly fridge. If anyone has tried either of these coffee balls, please let us know if it's worth the effort.

Have a great week.
