We will cover the principles behind making espresso, the techniques involved and practise pulling some tasty shots. We will then pull back to the start and cover different coffees and what to expect, how to taste, diagnose and adjust your recipe to make a great tasting espresso. We will then briefly touch on how to steam milk and have a dabble in latte art to finish off.
