I have a Thai friend that is interested in opening a cafe. We were thinking about visiting a cafe or a few downtown. It might be good to talk with you about some options with espresso machines, he would be looking for a good single group head machine. We might try to head downtown Monday. Friday we fly out to Taiwan.
We will be back to Bangkok on November 9th and would love to come to a cupping if the dates work out right. We are flying to Taiwan November 20th, where we will stay - so we don't have too much time left in Thailand and Bangkok.
Thanks for the message. I am coming to Bangkok August 22nd & will be staying in the Bangna by Rama 2 University. I think that is the correct location. I know Bangkok a little bit because I studied at Chulalongkorn University as an exchange student. I am coming with my brother & friend, we are all Barista's. I am the head barista at my cafe now, but am leaving to Asia.
Where is your cafe in Bangkok? I would love to visit and see your roasting set-up and your Cafe'. It would be really fun to pull some shots and do some latte art. I have some pictures on my profile of my latte art.
I will get a mobile phone when we arrive, so I will call you and we can communicate online until then.
Hey Zan, I have got the Rapallo all set up now. It has AWR through the solenoid connection, no pump though as this one is going to run at a cafe. Makes beautiful shots, sweet and buttery. Nice investment!
I hope you can help me on Astoria machine,
Model : Rapallo AEP2 ( the model you can view at this web page http://www.astoriaespresso.com/rapallo.) - I want to buy spare part - on/off switch for group head. Please help.
