Quills Coffee Linea Installation...Party
Last night, I had the privilege and honor of hanging around with the staff at Quills Coffee as Kenny Smith helped them install their new La Marzocco Linea 3MP. To the best of my knowledge, it's the only paddle-group machine in the city, and by all accounts, it's well worth the investment. It took us a little while to get all the kinks worked out, and Chris Heiniger claimed to be nuzzled by a family of possums, but the early closing time of 4 PM yesterday still allowed us to get everything done by midnight or so. Even Nathan Quillo's first shot on the machine, a glorious gusher, didn't dampen any of the cheers we let out upon seeing the espresso flow.
Of course, the late hour didn't deter me from going in and enjoying the fruits of our long hours, as I woke up to head over there so that Chris could pull me a few shots of SO espresso on the new machine. The verdict? Delicious. Go get some!
