DIY: Custom Home Espresso Cart

With all the espresso accessories and fun gadgets you’ve been collecting, you may find your kitchen counter space getting a little more cramped than it originally was. As we have heard from plenty of our customers, counter space can be an issue and sometimes the deciding factor on what espresso toys they choose.

But worry no more! Gone are the days of catering to space over getting what you really want with Jonathan Simon’s DIY Custom Espresso Cart (video).

You won’t need to be an experienced carpenter but you may want to know how to swing a hammer. All it takes is some innovation, a $50 IKEA kitchen cart and a few tools, and you’ll have your own maneuverable espresso cart with built in knock-box for easy clean-up and extra storage.

New! Rocket + Mazzer Grinders

Rocket Espresso and Mazzer joined their considerable forces to take the popular Mini and Mini E (Type A) versions of Mazzer’s grinders and wrap them up in a big ol’ Rocket bow. They have the same functionality as their non-branded counterparts, but with a polished stainless steel exterior and a Rocket badge on the back.

Watch Gail take us through these beautiful new grinders.

Crew Review: DeLonghi ECO310BK

DeLonghi’s petite ECO310BK is a simple single boiler, semi-automatic espresso machine designed for the budget-conscious.

Watch Gail give us the usual run down on features, pros and cons and whip us up a latte.
