Cooperation with Market Garden supermarket

I’m proud to announce that I’ve closed a cooperation with Market Garden supermarket in Simpson Bay. I am providing consulting services to them on their new coffee shop inside the supermarket, the Market Café. Calibration of the espresso machine, which grinders, grinder settings, milk, coffee recipes and some training of the other baristas.

Soft opening is currently underway with full opening scheduled for end of next week. Official opening to be announced in April 2018.

I’m still waiting on another grinder so I have two, one for black coffees and one for milk drinks. But I’ve been busy trying out different recipes for Cappuccino, Latte, Flat White and the iced versions. Lack of proper coffee equipment is one of the greatest challenges on this island. Local suppliers have nothing so everything has been ordered from USA.

Here are some photos of the drinks I made.

Everything is focused on drinks to-go and we use certified biodegradable paper cups for everything. So sadly, you can’t see the coffee and milk layering. Maybe in the future…

Coffee has been my life line for decades, it used to wake me up whenever my parents would make a pot. Having been in IT for 30 years and drifting towards Food&Beverage since 2006, I've slowly but unknowingly narrowed my field of flavors and odors from chef in the kitchen to sommelier at the dining table to barista with coffee since 2016. SCA Certified since 2017. With a background in chemistry, understanding the brew methods was very easy for me. Combined with an insatiable curiosity in knowledge I strive to learn even more about the world of coffee. Currently building up experience to participate in the Dutch Brewers Cup 2020 and if things go the way I hope, perhaps WBC 2023!
