    So happy to see Sum and Kaleena in this video! Had some fantastic coffee and hospitality when I visited Coffee Project earlier this year!

    Well since you've used the same machine I have at home, I'm going to have to admit that it's definitely not the machine's fault that my espresso doesn't come out as nice and this.

      Is all about practice, find the beans that suit your taste the best, etc. You’ll get there!

      @Matthew Davey that is just practice makes perfect. Although, you should probably take it out before it starts screeching.

      @Random Internet Guy I guess that's bad phrasing on my part. I'm actually happy with the espresso itself. It's my horrifically inconsistent milk work that's the issue.

      @Matthew Davey you probably didn't make the puck correctly. Most people use too much force.

      @Nacked Grils same here. About a month ago I pulled a brew out of a moka pot which was exactly like espresso. Unfortuanetly shortly after that the gasket gave up :/

    • Nacked Grils
      Nacked Grils Month ago

      @Friendly Indian Scammer Indeed, I've had my first great shot of espresso out of my small Top Moka pot I got for $35 about 10 years back. It was sweet, balanced, rich and chocolatey but , sadly, I was never able to reproduce this good of a shot with that setup even though it'd made me fall in love with espresso.

      dress for the dystopia you want Month ago

      I'm no snob, my machine costs only a bit more than a comparable drip coffee model, but I will say that the more expensive machines make it easier to get good results. Cheaper machines are more inconsistent so good technique won't go as far.

    • adrian lagman
      adrian lagman 4 months ago +7

      @des euryderia I think people in your comment section dont have the same metric for what makes coffee "good" - if it taste good enough for you to use a moka pot then good for you. if you take it seriously with regards to your taste palette and buy an expensive machine - i understand.
      its like with guitars. You don't need anything above an acoustic yamaha to play - but if you want to get a 2k kemper and Strymon pedals to go along with it to sound and dial in your tone with your suhr, that is a different scale of "good".

    As a Greek, I can tell you that is not a frappe, but it's rather more like a frappuccino. Frappe is much more simpler than that and a lot of the things added are optional. To make a frappe you take a tall glass, add 1 or more teaspoons of instant coffee and the amount of sugar/ sugar substitute that you desire, along with enough cold water to cover the ingredients. Beat them for like 20 seconds with a hand mixer (preferably an electric one) and then you add ice, water and if you wish, milk (in Greece we add condensed milk). Other variations may include dropping a scoop of vanilla ice cream before adding the water (so 90s') or a good amount of Bailey's Irish cream.

      I'm 90% sure in other countries, a frappe is just a shortened way of saying frappuccino. As far as I know, in most places in the U.S., and likely other countries as well, they are the same drink.

    As someone who only likes very specific coffee drinks these videos are really helpful for me, I don't like the bitterness that is intrinsic to most coffee beans (yes some beans have different undertones but they all have to much bitterness for me) so I only drink specific drinks that have flavours that counteract the bitterness

      @K-leb Really?? Every grinder I've ever seen in a coffee shop will dispense it directly into the portafilter. Typically they'll have a specific dose which will be measured out automatically.

    • K-leb
      K-leb 9 months ago

      @Fliptoe in my experience baristas only need to grind some beans every several coffees because they don't just grind the exact amount for each coffee.

    • Fliptoe
      Fliptoe 9 months ago

      @K-leb absolute bare minimum you're looking at 10 seconds of grinding time and then a 20-30 second extraction. Add milk frothing, levelling, tamping, purging the machine and obviously pouring the drink itself.
      You can get great coffee in about a minute but that's a lot of pressure on the barista and will depend on how busy it is.

    • K-leb
      K-leb 9 months ago

      @Fliptoe I once ordered from a coffee van in some markets, and not only was the coffee amazing, but it took less than a minute for them to give it to me. I was in disbelief at how fast yet how good they were at making espresso coffee. The barista was already frothing the milk while I paid.

    Great video! I’m not sure why it’s downvoted by so many. My takeaways are the Cortado, the specific almond grappa you used and the Paloma minus the espresso. I love a mocha with more espresso and less milk. For a while Starbucks made something called a Cordusio but it’s gone now so I have to pay for that extra shot. I’ve been getting closer with my Moka Pot over the French Press but I’ll eventually have to shell out for a machine. So much $$$$!

      Geez, are people still complaining bout me putting the timestamp in a comment?

If you look at many old videos people were putting the timestamps in the comments to help out others watching through the app. What a bunch of whiners!

    Frappe is instant coffee with water, not with blender but with a relatively weak mixer.
    Freddo is made with a double lungo or 60ml depending on the intensity one wants...The whole thing is in the technique of the mixing. Generally a bronze colour is an indicator of good enough

    This is such a good video. Informative, super on the mark with all the info presented, all great techniques for pouring steaming and extracting, totally hits the mark on latte art and how it's not the most important part of the coffee. I think the only thing I would add is that another way of floating your shot when making an americano/Long black is by holding your glass just below the baskets spout during the extraction, so it just falls softly onto the surface of the water, keeping the crema more intact and thicker.

    One note : Frappe is instant coffee that been beaten with a mixer to stiffen up. You just wet the instant coffee, mix it hard (directly in the glass usually using a mixing machine) until it gets concrete-like. You add ice in the glass and then add water or milk till you reach the amount you like in the glass.

    lovely video, very informative. i'm definitely gonna be trying the espresso martini on my own now. one little correction though: For the turkish coffee, "ibrik" is something that's like the white kettle, "cezve" is the copper one. other than that it was actually really well made, not losing the crema/köpük on top is hard coz it might be gone if you leave it like 10 seconds more.

    (greek here) actualy, frappe is not made with espresso, but with instant coffee. Also we don't use milk as a base but we use it at the end. We use water instead. But your video is amazing and I realllly wanna try all of these.

    Caffe Freddo can be as simple as ordering a coffee and a glass with some ice cubes and just pour the coffee over the ice. For hot days its amazing

    In türkiye, we sometimes boil the coffee two times and also take its foam to cup with spoon while its first boiling. (Then we put it on fire again, until the coffee start boiling again.) in that way the coffee will have a better foam.

      Labour syrup is when you try to make an espresso but use too much pressure so the coffee revolts and you end up achieving communism in a cup.

      We have a drink called the Triple 7 where I work. It's a breve with 6 shots of espresso, white chocolate, and Irish cream (flavor, not alcohol sadly). It's incredibly popular and we have people who will add extra espresso to it. One regular orders his with 4 extra shots. Every. Single. Day.

      @Hardcoremagicalgirl Fifi Good grief.
      After I bought myself an automatic espresso machine, within a week I had to make a hard rule of MAX 3 shots per day, and I get the third one only if it's a particularly terrible day. (I already had a rule about no coffee after 2 p.m.) It's too easy to overindulge when the drinks are so yummy, and caffeine is no joke. It can impact the quality of your sleep which over time will wreak havoc on your health.

    Good video but I would recommend mixing expresso with heavy toasted malt beers like a porter and many others. Their are beers that taste very close to coffee vs the beer you used.

    I missed the important component of how fine you grind the coffee beans. And the time it takes for the water to get trough the coffee "pucket" will affect the taste. Besides that I learned some things. Fun video

    This is art! I had the luck to meet Sum and Kaleena in NYC when I discovered the world of coffee through their hands. As one of the first official students in Sum's Barista & Coffee Brewing programs, I can say they were responsible in bringing joy and reunion to hundreds of families in Brazil. Today as a coffee professional I focus on what they first offered me: not just a coffee drink, but a sensitive and family-like coffee experience. Now with great references thanks to Sum and Kaleena, I can widely spread their words while bringing people together through the finest techniques in coffee extraction. Coffee can be a whole new world to explore, but they showed me it can also be simple and comforting. Thank you, Sum and Kaleena. I'm grateful to say you both are part of my story.

    I like how Kaleena took the coffee portion for the most part and for the alcohol portion Sum was like "hold my beer"

    Amazing video! Very informative and I really enjoyed the vibe of these two girls! I personally am such a coffee snob that I almost don't drink coffee since I cannot find a decent cup! Weird right?! Also, when I order a breve cappuccino here where I live, people tend to look at me as if I am from another planet!! (Once I asked for a bit of nutmeg on my latte and that almost started a revolution :p)
    I am no expert when it comes to coffee though, however I am Greek (Hellenas) and I have to say that what this Coffee-Power-Duo showcased us as a frappé, is not a frappé. Here in Hellas, we make frappé with instant coffee and a little water (and a bit of sugar if you like your coffee sweetened) that you whisk very well until it becomes somewhat of a mayo-consistency. Then add ice, fill with water (you can also add some -flavoured- syrup) and there you have it! Frappé. Something else that we do and it is weird that it hasn't caught on like wildfire (I hate it but I get the science behind it) is espresso and cappuccino "fredo", italian for chilled. It is your doppio, with some ice and sweetener (if you like it) whisk it together and serve in a glass filled with ice. At the moment of the pour, the crema and the coffee body have emulsified because of the high-speed whisking and then start to separate a minute after you serve it. Yàmas!!!

    P.S. I hope Sum didn't drink all the coffee made in this shoot by herself. Even I try to cap myself at 2 cups a day.

      Typically, Irish Coffee isn't made with espresso. Usually just a typically hot brewed coffee. But I'm sure one could concoct a very good Irish-spresso!
