1st In Coffee – Espresso Making As An Art Form

Jura Capresso ENA 3 Nov 10, 2009 blogOne of my favorite “art’ forms is the art of espresso making.  Most of us know that we choose our favorite coffee shop for it’s flavors, aromas, ambiance, and convenient location.  Another reason, for me, was the well-trained barista at my favorite shop.  He could make the most consistent, perfect shots topped with a rich crema and he knew how to make the cool designs on top with the froth that topped my drinks.

I finally asked what his secret was and he said that it just took a little practice.  Then he showed me some techniques.  Of course, I ran home and tried many times and failed to make even the simplest design.  His instructions didn’t help at all when I tried to duplicate his work on my home machine.  I was pretty sure he was some kind of magician.espresso art blog Nov. 10, 2009

After listening to me complain, he finally convinced me that I needed to have a more professional espresso machine if I expected to get the results I was looking for.  He helped me do some research and I finally chose a Jura espresso machine. We found it on a website that he said his shop often used to purchase supplies and equipment called “1st in Coffee”.  I chose a mid-priced home machine (Jura Capresso ENA 3) because he thought it would serve my purpose well. I was delighted to find that the machine does all I need and more.  It even grinds the coffee and has a pressurized pump that helps provide the quality of shots I was looking for.  Also, I can now do the frothing “art” like a pro!  Thanks to Andy, my favorite barista!  Of course I still stop in now and then, but I make most of my espresso at home now with great results.
