After a long delay I finally got access over the weekend to the storage unit my things were in.
I hadn’t really understood what I’d been missing out on until I unpacked my coffee grinder and espresso pot.
$6.50 got me 200g of arabica at the local IGA and in the same time I could otherwise spend queuing up to get a surly teenager to make me espresso badly on filthy equipment I can now make a real flat white for a unit cost somewhere around 15c.
Now the question is this: is there any place in this coffee shop riddled town that’s going to (with all the advantages of training, specialisation, and equipment available) make me a better cup of coffee?
