Portafilters & Parenting

You can simultaneously change the grind and a diaper; you aren't afraid of tampers or toddlers; YOU...can make a cappuccino with one hand (because the other hand contains a small person).

My 18 month old, Eden, refuses to drink milk without a coffee bean to chew on while she's at it.

Our little guy is still a bit small to get behind a machine, but has got to visit a number of trade shows overseas (great way to see the world if you ask me!). He does love the roastery, I have high hopes for him as a roaster

Emme cups with us quite often and has a developed pallete. Tony's daughter Sophie does too.

Thank you to everyone for joining my group. Let me know if there are other members you think would be interested in having a discussion on how to be a coffee professional (are we professionals?) and a parent.
