The Daily Ristretto is our attempt to give you what you’ve asked for- more content from our podcast. Instead of going longer, we decided to put something out more frequently. We hope you enjoy it and would be delighted to get your feedback in the comments below, via e-mail, or on social media. Hit us up.
In Episode 37, I talked about some new brew devices that the Mrs picked up while she was cruising Bed, Bath, and Beyond yesterday evening. She picked up a Bialetti Moka Pot, and a hand frother for the milk. $60 total, and we’ll see what we can do with it. Do have any recipes or advice for how to get a great cup out of the Moka pot? Hit me up.
I also reviewed an incredible article by Pete Licata. It’s a little long but well worth the read. Pete wrote about the problems with Barista competitions and how they can be fixed. I tried to post a long comment on his site, but alas… Squarespace deleted it. So a one liner will do. I ended up reading half the article on the show, so you could get the feel of it. Go check out the rest of it.
