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.

These are definitely the best coffee pods ever. Delicious, and since we discovered them cannot now be without any.
I drink coffee everyday- everywhere- never to be found without a cup. This is by far the best nespresso compatible capsule I’ve ever had. It’s rich and smooth. I like cream in my coffee but this is delicious black on its own. Try it... you know you want to. PS it’s Organic!!! WHAT?? Rare find with this price point and DELICIOUS.
Cannot recommend this coffee highly enough. Flavour and aroma in a different league to every variety of Nespresso I’ve tried. Aron and the team always super helpful, and delivery very efficient.
I am a regular cyclist and often stop at the cafe in Tring. I think they do the best tasting flat whites in the chilterns’s. When i saw they did Nespresso pods i ordered some and was impressed that the owner hand delivered them to Gerrards Cross (nice touch). I really like the taste its not as nice as in the cafe! Clearly the cafe team have many more secrets to making it taste so good.
The only challenge i would make is that at £5 for a sleeve of 10 its expensive.
These Organic T.E.L coffee pods are the best I have ever had.
