Coffee Machines

New Zealander Buzz Fendal, AKA The Bald Barista, is a highly regarded barista with two coffee shops in Dublin. Buzz is very passionate about coffee - the beans, grind, and the skill it takes to make the perfect cup of coffee.

Together with two viewers, John Kavanagh and Debbie Colliton, Buzz put four home espresso machines through their paces in the quest for a perfect cappuccino. The coffee aficionados all agreed that their preferred machines were either the Krups or the Gaggia.
