I love watching old puck violently purged over the grounds bin and the basket refilled with a fresh mound of ground coffee.
I love watching that twist of the of the wrist as the tamper is pressed then quickly withdrawn from a perfectly flat earthy brown disk.
I love watching those mice tails of espresso emerge from the portafilter, a sure sign the barrister knows their craft.
So much enjoyment and I’ve not yet taken my first sip. I love to watch my coffee being made.
