I just know there are coffee shops and coffee shops. Barista coffee, Independent, specialty and then Costa etc! Just like there is fine wine I know people for who coffee is only drinkable in specialty brewed form.
There are occasions where I stumble across YouTube videos even tumble down entire rabbit holes of content. I love it when a creator takes centre stage.
I've decided to blog about a few but keep the posts short inline with the style sustainable for these daily blogs. Since moving house in 2015 my televisual consumption is solely on iPad via YouTube, BBC iPlayer, Amazon Prime and since Christmas 2020 Netflix.
I’m going to include a playlist with 5 vids to get you started.
In this post I want to introduce you to James Hoffman. A UK coffee YouTube and Barista champion. His knowledge and insight with his humour, expectation of things to function as they should (watch the scales video in the playlist), his dedication to taste the best and the comically obvious worst. Compelling, informative and I'm looking forward visiting coffee shops even more. I will try espresso for the first time too.
A playlist of 5 to get you started.
