For early mornings and long days at the IAA, our booth is appropriately equipped with a bar, serving specialty beverages. Barista, Patrick Fuhrs, took the time to tell us what makes the perfect espresso. The coffee beans are freshly ground at the booth; the right balance between fine and coarse. Eight grams of coffee grounds are then tightly pressed and added to the espresso machine allowing the water to evenly seep through, leaving him with the right consistency – crema and all! Patrick offers a variety of warm beverages such as cappuccinos, lattes, macchiatos and Americanos leaving the aroma of coffee hanging in the air — keeping us all alert and awake when we need it most.
