NADA (New Art Dealers Alliance, that is) Art Fair was held recently in Miami Beach and Intelligentsia to pair spectacular coffee with spectacular art. WBC Champion Stephen Morrissey, USBC Champion Michael Phillips, and David Latourell were there to pull shots from two classic semi-auto La Marzocco Lineas and to provide entertainment.

GIZMODO Reports on La Marzocco (and Coffee)

27 08 2009

Usually known for their reporting and humor on all things tech and gadgets, Gizmodo‘s Matt Buchanan wrote a comprehensive primer on coffee and basic brewing methods. Unlike most mainstream media, however, he actually sought knowledge and advice from those in the know – Ken Nye of Ninth Street Espresso and David Latourell of Intelligentsia. Matt also interviewed Jacob Ellul-Blake, La Marzocco s.r.l.‘s R&D, on what it takes for an espresso machine to brew a good espresso shot (other than a good barista, that is).

Also featured in the article is a picture of Ninth Street Espresso’s custom Linea Paddle.
