BARISTA GUILD EUROPE: COLAB ANTWERP 2016

For most of us the word ‘barista’ is pretty new to our vocabulary. The idea that it takes more to prepare a cup of coffee than just add water and give it a stir is also relatively new. However, it has not taken long for speciality coffee to become part of our daily lives. How many people now start their day with a flat white rather than an instant coffee, or have lavished money on coffee gadgets and gismos that now take pride of place in our kitchen? As coffee culture has taken hold and established itself firmly in the UK (Brighton more than most perhaps) then we are starting to realise that it takes a high quality coffee combined with someone who knows what to do with it, if we are going to enjoy what we are drinking.
