Learning about Coffee/Espresso in Melbourne - Groups to join?
I'm an expat from Chicago now living in Melbourne. Since I got here 2 months ago I'm really liking the cafe/coffee/espresso culture - just awesome.
Anyways, I took a couple espresso classes and bought a cheap espresso machine and have been trying my hand at espressos at home, which are definitely not good so far!
I'd like to find or join a group here in Melbourne if there is such a thing. An Espresso Jam, I think they're called? It'd be fun to pick up some skills and try different equipment, talk coffee, etc.
Hopefully such a thing exists!
Hi cbrshadow and welcome to CS!
Maybe you could post up your backstory here:
Not sure from your post whether you are an American or Australian ex-pat?? Guessing American??
I've heard of barista jams but not espresso jams.
I've also heard of Talk Coffee...... ;-D
Hey all good points! I'll post my backstory for sure.

Barista Jams.. That's what I meant!
Just tried to visit the Talk Coffee site but appears to be down - their bandwidth is exceeded?
We're up now. I'll be having words with our web guys today.
