Yet another video from those guys at Square Mile…
The legendary London coffee shop that is Flat White changed their espresso machine to a customised 4 group Synesso Hydra beauty.
The most groups [spouts for forcing water through ground coffee to create espresso] a machine usually has at maximum is four, but the guys at Square Mile Coffee Roasters pushed it by making this unique unit - check out the foot controlled steam wand in the middle of the two groups.

In My Mug / Barista Jam 7/5/11
We were lucky enough to be visited by Has Bean’s head roaster Steve Leighton to record In My Mug Live (see here) and chat with his adoring fans.
We then followed it with 6/8’s first Barista Jam, inviting baristas from around Birmingham (and Shrewsbury!) to chat coffee, have a go on our Synesso and have a few beers.
This will be the first of many to come and keep a close eye out for upcoming events in the next couple of months.
Our Synesso Cyncra Three-group in all its glory
Tipped as one of the best espresso machines in the world, you can’t get much better than the sleek design of the American designed Synesso Cyncra. Known for its meticulous consistency for getting the best out of an espresso, the Cyncra is a beast - but love and it will love you straight back.
This is just a taster of our chrome beauty; rest assured that I will be publishing follow up articles about the aspects of the Synesso and how it helps up make great coffee.
For now, have a nose around the Synesso site, I’ll start you off on the page dedicated to the model we use and you can go from there.
