A big congrats to everyone who competed, coached, judged, and volunteered in Dublin this week. Sorry I couldn’t be there!

I heard reports that Berg Wu’s WBC-winning coffee was jaw-droppingly floral; and can attest to Tetsu Kasuya’s Ninety Plus Geisha being an exemplar of natural coffees in Panama. Both excellent ambassadors for the industry!
I’m sure you’ve heard enough about all that this week, so here’s what else has happened!

Slayer Steam Dream
💨 I’ve been waiting for an espresso machine company to bring out an interesting, show-stopping feature for a number of years now. The Slayer Steam may be it!
By flash heating steam to 170C  just as it’s about to exit the machine, the new Slayer machine claims to have changed the whole milk game. It apparently caramelises the sugars and proteins, making milk sweeter, more decadent, and creamier (via Sprudge). The dual settings for each steam arm are also a welcome addition.
These are currently marketing claims mixed with a little science-speak, but I’m definitely curious. Did anyone try it at Dublin? I started this topic in the BH community site for discussion.
PS Dear Slayer, thanks for finally including volumetrics!
