The Story Behind Espresso Bear

My name is Norbert Koput, and I created Espresso Bear to share what I have learned about espresso to help others get that morning feeling that keeps us grounded and comforted.

I love the taste, the aroma, and the boost of energy. I like drinking coffee with friends and family and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do and make it part of your morning ritual.

The kind of milk pitcher you have can also impact your milk pour. Different-sized pitchers have different tips, and some of these tips can be too wide and make getting the pour right more difficult.

With these tips and practice, you should be pouring latte art in no time!

Many people do not know the ins and outs of espresso and might even have expensive machines without knowing how to work them properly. Espresso Bear explores the world of espresso machines, bottomless portafilters, grinders, espresso bar setups, espresso beans, storage techniques, coffee recipes, and shares the findings!


When it comes to flavor and roasts, everyone has their preferences because everyone has a different palette. I tend to lean toward darker roasts as I have found them to be more forgiving for at-home espresso, and they tend to be more chocolatey. I love chocolate. I also have had some fantastic medium roasts that I prefer over other kinds. No “best roast” exists because what tastes good to you does not always taste good to others. Stick with what you find to be your favorite!
