Some Nice Coffee Picture


Just some nice pic of cappuccino I’ve made recently.


This is a cup of Hot Chocolate.

Which one you like best?

Barista Jam


Couple of weeks ago, we had a Barista Jam at Irving’s place. He is the proud owner of a new Rancilio Silvia and Compak Doserless grinder.

Also there were Weechuan, Joseph and myself. I shall let the photos speak for themselves.

I am so envious my friend. Rancilio Silvia is one of the all time best home espresso machine. It beats my Gaggia Baby D without a blink. Though Silvia is more expensive (around RM2600 if you have the right connections), it is truly a worthwhile investment. Here are 3 top reasons why Silvia is better than any Gaggia’s home machine:-
1. Silvia with Brass Boiler vs Gaggia with Aluminium Bioler
2. Silvia’s boiler is 12oz vs Gaggia’s boiler is 3.5oz
3. Silvia’s powerful steam vs Gaggia’s pathetic steam

Okay. Those are the 3 photos I took with my pathetic digital camera. What you see after this are the excellent photos taken by Joseph, a professional photographer with a REAL camera 😀

Cappuccino Spree


I have been going on a cappuccino spree for the past few days. Using the Highlander Supreme Blend to the fullest… here are some results:-

Unable to control the pour properly, I don’t even know what pattern is that. A snail on the left.. hahaha.. and cheated with a bit of etching on the right.

These are better. Smooth, sweet and velvety with a clear fresh taste of good coffee.
