I met Gwilym earlier this year at the Caffe Culture show in London. He was extremely nice, casually answered all questions put to him and his answers were thoroughly helpful.

I'm curious, have you thought about doing a write-up on the topic of Lever machines? I'd be interested to read your thoughts.

Thanks for the comment. I agree, Gwilym is an awesome guy. So full of knowledge and passion.

On the topic of lever machines - I don't really know much about them. Stop by Present on Shoreditch High Street and have a chat with whichever barista is working the machine.
