A few weeks back point8cam won a coffee workshop with Illy from TimeOut KL for two, so obviously his workshop partner would be the incapable-of-doing-almost-everything me! I thought it was gonna be just a normal workshop of showing the participants on how to do this and that etc but we ended up making the coffee using the super expensive coffee machine that baristas use at cafe's. Okay, lemme confess one thing - I am not good with machines... at all! And making PROPER coffee isn't as easy as the usual morning coffee I make daily. You gotta have the right pressure on the right amount of grinded coffee beans, the right temperature of milk and oh my God, luckily I wasn't the one making the milk cause I left that part to point8cam. It was super complicated! Everything had to be almost accurate, which is why there are people who study and learn how to be coffee connoisseurs and such. I thought only wine has that complexity. Turns out coffee isn't that simple either =/
I had fun learning new things, super tempted to buy the mini home machine now, and let's just say I still suck at making proper cappuccino and I kinda ruined our own-made coffee that morning. So much for being a Stepford wife HAHAHA
I'll just stick to cooking (-_-)
so now we know how to differentiate a good coffee, over-developed and under-developed ones!
We're definitely gonna be fussy coffee clients! KL Baristas better not slack! =P
