To date our Head Barista Aron has made over a million of coffees during his time, that’s a lot right? His dedication and skill has benefited coffee shops around the E.U., Canada, New York & his home city London. In 2010 Aron started with a mobile espresso van which taught him just how difficult it can be to manage different bean densities in England’s inclement weather. Determined to master the art of consistency, he spent days testing coffees from around the world, roasting different blends to formulate a recipe that would deliver a consistent base flavour within a temperature range of -5’c to 35’c. Most coffee shops are fitted with air conditioning units which assist in maintaining that consistency, but without that luxury Aron’s understanding of the volatility of coffee grew considerably.
The business expanded in 2011 when both Aron and his wife, Clare, took on a failing coffee shop after the recession with aim to give it life. With previous experience in hospitality and business management, their dedication and hard graft paid off and The Espresso Lounge Tring is a successful coffee shop and cafe with several TripAdvisor awards and fantastic reviews.
They remain within this lucrative industry to date and can offer invaluable knowledge to new business start ups or those wishing to train their baristas to the highest possible standard. Barista equipment, coffee machines, sales training and business consultancy are all available through Barista Life and can set your business on the path to success.
"Join our journey"
I booked a Latte Art session for 5 people as a Christmas gift for the family after a few of us had purchased coffee machines in the months prior. We had a mix of absolute beginners to myself who, whilst still technically a beginner, have been making coffee (and steaming milk) at home for around 2 years .
Aron has a really great way about him, and was able to cater for the entire group in an engaging, encouraging and friendly manner.
The session started from the ground up, starting with the basics (including the science behind frothing milk) and ending with a latte art competition between the family.
A really great way to spend the morning with the family and highly recommended! Oh - and Aron's coffee is absolutely banging! A true maestro behind the coffee machine.
