under pressure, with care

I found this video absolutely fascinating. I’m a sucker for the junction of art and process, and this video highlights just such a situation that also happens to involve the making of good espresso. Here in Richmond, I’ve only experienced this level of care in coffee making at Ellwood’s Coffee at the top of Carytown. The first time I ordered a cappuccino there last year, in fact, the barista scrapped the initial shot of espresso because she didn’t like the way it was extracting. It took a little longer for my coffee, but the result was worth the wait.
