Hands down the biggest load of rubbish I’ve read in the last 30 years.
Not surprised as the primary participant of the article, that Melbourne company, is a rampant attention seeker......Creating controversy in order to generate publicity.
Remember TDS, open shots and a few other fads that passed.
If you read between the lines, they even admit their methods produce a bland, mediocre result.......lacking complexity and the wow factor all espresso enthusiasts seek.
It’s a nothing story on a slow news week......cafes don’t focus on espresso, they strive to make a variety of beverages that cater for a rapidly growing menu of choices, mostly with milk or milk alternatives. Pure espresso is such a niche in Australia its almost insignificant.
And to close this off, hopefully to bury it....... Australia has for a long time been doing their espresso remarkably different to the traditional and enduring Italian methods........100% arabica, lighter roasts, fruitier lots, larger doses, etc. and pressure profiling......
Nothing to see here folks, just a momentary brand exposure moment.
