In the world of coffee making, the right equipment determines the quality of coffee produced. Undoubtedly, the single most important factor in coffee making is the barista himself.
Nevertheless every barista needs to be equipped with the right tools and accessories needed to make the finest coffee. Having only a great coffee machine while all other coffee making tools are substandard will produce merely a good coffee cup, never an excellent one.
In order to achieve coffee perfection, one must have the right technique and must have first class equipment – from the coffee maker or espresso machine used for brewing down to the spoon used for stirring.
