I will leave this with you for the Labor Day Weekend, here in the states. OMG, this is ridicules.
Read up on this over at Andrew Hetzel’s site, as I don’t have time to get all the sources and everything and do a “full report.” Looks like he did a great job, anyway.
LONDON (August 29, 2008) – The world’s top baristas will test their coffee making skills in competition using the Nuova Simonelli Aurelia espresso machine and MAHLKÖNIG K30 espresso grinders at World Barista Championship events in 2009 – 2011.
Look, I am one to proclaim the following about both of the brands:
- Nuova Simonelli – Every single place, without any exception, I go and see these machines has the worst coffee one can imagine. Especially their grinders. IMHO, these are the machines people buy when they can’t or won’t afford for a real piece of equipment.
- MAHLKÖNIG – I know of two places that uses this in their bar and they do a great job. I honestly don’t know anything more than that. It doesn’t bother me at all one way or another on the grinder. MAHLKÖNIG or the current sponsor the Compak K-10.
Now that I have pissed everybody off, I am off on holiday. G’day!
