I always kinda wanted to be a barista. From my very first trip to a proper coffee shop as a student in Montreal, I was hooked. There was always something about the sound, smell and ritual of the coffee grinder pulverizing coffee beans into the grounds that would make my very own cup of coffee à la minute that illustrated the massive difference between the instant coffee crystals my aunts drank and true coffee culture. And don’t even get me started on frothed milk. Once I tried an airy, velvety cappuccino made by someone who knew what they were doing with the steam-wand, it was pretty tough to return to my usual quick dash of cold 2% in my morning brew. Heck, the sound of a coffee grinder still makes me lazily wonder if I should pick up a couple morning shifts slinging lattes.

I’m super excited to be teaming up with my friends at Capresso who are offering my readers (hey, that’s you!) the chance to win everything you’ll need to take your morning cup of coffee to the to the next level – all while lending your kitchen the sounds and aroma of a proper caffetteria in Rome or Milan.
