Making great coffee on cheap, second hand espresso machines
A few weeks ago, on a saturday afternoon, we hit Gumtree hard in search of used espresso machines. The cheaper the better! Our goal is to show that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to make great coffee at home. And as you will see throughout this series, old espresso machines can be used to make great coffee. All you need is fresh roasted coffee and a bit of know-how.
Our first stash!
Coffee for the community Series 1 E1
In the first series of Coffee for the Community we take the machines for a test run to see if we can make great coffee on cheap, used machines we bought on Gumtree. In later episodes we also try the machines with pre-ground coffee, show you how to steam milk, make killer cappuccinos and go deep into how much coffee to put into the portafilter basket. It’s been fun to create this little series, we hope you enjoy it and pick up a few tips on how to make great coffee at home.
Watch episode 1
Oh, and after we’re done with these machines we will run a little comp to give them away. Have fun watching the first episode!
