About This Project
Why was this site created?
Let’s face it – a lot of us run on coffee. It gets expensive though, especially if your daily drink is a grande tripple caramel latte, really anything beyond your regular joe. At $3 to $5 a pop, you could be shelling out well over a $1,000 every year (Find out how much you’re probably spending with the coffee calculator). Yikes. This site will teach you how to take the DIY (Do It Yourself) approach, saving significant time and money achieving better-than-the-coffee-shop results. Just don’t be surprised if family and friends start knocking on your door in the mornings and calling you barista. They mean well.
About the Presenter: Ben Kouba
I’m just a regular guy who was spending way too much moolah on fancy coffee. I received an espresso machine as a Christmas gift and decided to spend some time learning the right way to make all of my favorite drinks. Turns out, it’s really fun and surprisingly easy. The videos are all shot in my home kitchen. Nothing fancy. The only compensation I receive is through some affiliate links throughout the site. If you decide to buy one of the products that I recommend, like the espresso machine that I use in the videos, please click through one of the links on this site on your way to checkout. No one is paying me to promote their product, but I make recomendations based on my research and experience. I’m a web designer by trade, and this is a personal project – just for fun.
LEAF9 LLC is the reason I need espresso in the first place. My business creates hand-crafted, high-end websites for clients in the North East USA. This website was designed and developed by LEAF9 as a side project to both market my business, and generate some extra income on the side. If you’re interested in having a professional website designed, you should drop me a note about the project you have in mind.
