[Coffee Tasting Terms For Espresso Coffee Makers][1] [[Food-and-Drink:Coffee
Articles from][2]]

One of the aspects of becoming a true coffee aficionado or espresso coffee
maker is to develop an ability to taste and evaluate the coffee after the
roasting and grinding has been done. In the coffee industry this process is
called cupping.

If you have heard of Jura-Capresso 13422 Impressa C9 One Touch Automatic
Coffee-and-Espresso Center, Black, you have probably heard mostly good things
about this coffee machine. However, you should still do a little research in
your own starting with the machine's features.

[Medicinal Uses of Coffee][4] [[Food-and-Drink:Coffee Articles from][2]]

I personally search for the purpose of coffee. It is reported by various
studies to have medical benefits, but none report just why the research was

all this research by varied entities produce only a single result, yet no two
studies ever research the same benefit, or multiple benefits.

[Spring Espresso, York][5] [[Cosy Coffee Shops][6]]

As seasons go by, new coffee shops emerge in historic York. The latest is
Spring Espresso, a terrific independent cafe on Fossgate.

Spring opened in Autumn 2011. The owners, Steve and Tracey, were formerly part
of the Cafe2U franchise, selling coffee around the region from a bright red
van. They left behind their lives on the road for a more static existence.

Fossgate was the perfect choice to lay down some roots. A nice street, plenty
of footfall (but not too central) and a bright, airy room.

To this mix they've added some wonderful furniture. Every piece has been
restored just for Spring, and every piece has a story to tell, whether it's a
wheel from a dark, disused Yorkshire mill or something equally intriguing. Ask
Steve and he'll happily point out the industrial notches. (A couple of tables
pictured were awaiting custom-made glass tops at the time; they have since
been topped.)

The furniture is a mark of Spring's individuality, as is the rather cool
branding. The wings allude to Steve's former life in the Air Force.

The coffee comes from [J. Atkinson & Co][13], a Lancaster-based roastery
making its debut in Cosy Coffee Shops. The beans in use at the time made for
quite an unusual flat white - rather citrusy and tangy - and a better

Steve is really into his coffee and reached the semi-finals of the UK Barista
Championships in 2010. He's just as passionate about tea, with plenty
available at Spring along with cakes and savoury lunchtime options.

A lot of passion, talent and attention has gone into Spring. It's a comfy,
welcoming spot and Steve and Tracey are as friendly a pair of proprietors as
you could wish to meet.

All in all, a worthy addition to York's coffee shop scene.
