The 2014 Specialty Coffee Event and US Coffee Championships wrapped up last weekend and we still haven’t recovered! We had a bit too much fun exhibiting in our own backyard and representing the Pacific Northwest! Thanks to everyone that stopped in to visit our booth and grab an espresso from one of our amazing guest baristas! We were lucky to round up such a great group of coffee professionals to sling spro on our customized GS2/GB5 hybrid machine!

  • Custom designed and fabricated in the Espresso Parts Custom Shop
