Gizmodo tours Slayer, Synesso, and La Marzocco factories

Ahh Seattle. Home of grunge. Megachurches. Silicon Valley. And the production of high end commercial coffee machines.

Three of my favourite commercial machine producers are based there, so I’m pretty jealous of Gizmodo contributor (and former editor) Matt Buchanan, who toured the factories of Slayer, Synesso, and La Marzocco – and put this video together.

Gold Coast Cafe Review: Barefoot Barista

It’s important, possibly essential, when picking a coastal holiday spot, to find somewhere with good coffee by the beach. Coffee makes holidays go around. Barefoot Barista in Palm Beach is one to add to the map. And if you’ve got some days booked on the sunny Gold Coast you could do worse than make it your “local.”

The decor is stunningly beachy, laid back, and comfortable. The staff are friendly. The baristas wear shoes (at least they were when we were there) and the crowds sitting around tables inside and out are a testimony to their ability on their beautiful blue La Marzocco Linea.

The latte art was photogenic. The coffee was typical Campos. Tasty. Tasty and well made. My double shot flat white had great texture and was the ideal temperature.

Their banana bread and bacon frittatas were just top drawer. A great start to the morning, and I’m told the white chocolate and raspberry muffins are just amazing.
