This week we love...

La Marzocco GS/3


GS_3This week we love the La Marzocco GS/3 espresso machine.

La Marzocco has always produced world class espresso machines and they are internationally perceived as the Rolls Royce brand of the coffee world. Owning one is something every coffee lover dreams of. La Marzocco mainly manufactures bigger, commercial machines aimed at the restaurant industry, so the GS/3 is really a breath of fresh air for the Italian based company.

The GS/3 is not cheap. With a price tag of just over R40k, it is probably out of reach for most home baristas. It is however a great machine for light commercial use and it certainly fills a niche in the small coffee shop and guest house market.  As far as single group head machines go, this is about as good as it gets. It offers a dual boiler system and a 3,5 litre water tank which makes plumbing optional. The GS/3 also has a digital display function which allows you to electronically adjust the brewing temperature according to your requirements.

If you’re in the market for a single group head, put the GS/3 on your shopping list. It’s the ultimate toy for any coffee enthusiast.

La Marzocco machines are available from Koldserve:

E-Christmas Cards


SantaThis week we love electronic Christmas cards. Some might think it's a bit impersonal, but going electronic is the "green" thing to do. An electronic Christmas card is nothing new, but what caught our attention is that some large corporate companies are sending out these cards, but also committing to donate the same amount of money they would have spent on real Christmas cards to an environmental cause like the WWF (World Wildlife Fund).

We first noticed it when we received an e-card from Detpak (one of our corporate partners at the Joburg Coffee Club). We love the fact that companies in the coffee industry are increasingly becoming aware of the importance of sustainable living.

Russell Hobbs Espresso maker


Russell_Hobbs_Espresso_maker_SmallThis week we love Russell Hobbs' range of domestic espresso machines. Not only are they beautiful, but they are also very affordable, making it a perfect stocking filler for your loved one this Christmas.

The RH1915 in particular caught our eye. This stainless steel beauty offers a constant 15 bar pump pressure, a removable water tank and a removable drip tray for easy cleaning. It also boasts a separate steam wand for steaming milk for that perfect cappuccino.

Russell Hobbs appliances are available from most large retailers.


The Bialetti Mukka Express


Mukka_Express_PotThis week we love the "Bialetti Mukka Express" espresso maker from Yuppie Chef.

Make creamy cappuccino's on your stove-top in minutes with one of the funkiest professional products on the market for super fast and easy espresso or cappuccino.

Water goes in the black compartment, milk in the top, and ground coffee in the middle. The water is forced through the coffee and up into the milk, and the result is a professional cappuccino in the comfort of your home. It not only works well, but it also looks great with its funky cow print design.

Retails for about R1340. Available from Yuppie Chef.


Husband Pleasing Coffee


Husband_pleasing_coffeeThis week we love "Husband Pleasing Coffee".... (tounge-in-cheek of course). This is an actual ad for Acme Markets in the US, dating back to the 1960's.

Life was simple before all the distractions of modern life. No internet, cellphones or credit cards. Man hadn't landed on the moon yet and a black berry was something you ate from the tree in your back garden. There wasn't a Starbucks on every street corner and every happily married man could look forward to a great cup of coffee made by his loving wife when he got home after a long day at work.

Somehow we don't think an advertising campaign with a similar angle would work well in 2010....
