Coffee Capsules for Bartenders?!

Maxwell Calonna-Dashwood founder of Colonna coffee and “three time UK Barista Champion” teamed up with world renowned mixologist and author Tristan Stephenson to create “the Bartender Series, a range of espresso capsules designed specifically for use in cocktails.”.  A recent article describes the three flavour profile capsules available which include: Earth, Sweet and Fruit. Each capsule is created with a specific spirit pairing in mind. For instance, the Earth is “herbal and sweet with mild spice” residing well with tequila, mezcal and agave based cocktails. Calonna-Dashwood and Stephenson’s belief is that “this approach to implementing coffee in a cocktail bar environment has the potential to revolutionise the manufacture of drinks like the espresso martini as well as myriad other coffee based drinks.”

The craft of Bartending and skills of a Barista are becoming one entity it seems! Interested in learning these fine skills? BartenderOne has just the courses for you!

Wake up and smell the Coffee

lDid you know that famous saying is actually accurate? As it turns out, our sense of smell shuts down during sleep. The sense of smell, or “olfaction”, is the first sense we use at birth and is the sense most closely linked to the brain. Some of life’s simplest pleasures are based on the sense of smell which is central to the ability to taste. And what aroma is more  identifiable than a freshly brewed cup of  coffee?   We all know not all coffee tastes the same, or possesses the same flavour characteristics, but why? The study of coffee is constantly evolving.  There are quite a few top knotch classes in Toronto however many don’t run in the summer months.  Buena Barista is a year round class that recently welcomed Roxanne Ramnarine as its new instructor.”Roxy” brings a wealth of knowledge and passion for the mighty bean. We hear she has a few fun tricks up her sleeve this summer to get your senses working!
