S T U F F : P R O D U C T S PIQUITO PRESS By now you're familiar with the Puqpress, the precision coffee tamper that's sweeping the United States coffee market (it's already almost everywhere in Australia). You've seen it as a stand-alone piece, but what about folks with super limited counter space? Enter the Puqpress M1 and M2, squat versions of the original that were created specifically to fit just underneath the Mahlkönig K30 Vario Air or Peak grinders (M1 model) or under the Victoria Arduino Mythos 1 and 2 grinders (M2 model) pictured at right. Dose your grind, slide it into the Puqpress M1 or M2, and presto, a consistent, perfectly flat tamp ready for machine insertion. SIZE MATTERS WITH COLD BREW After rolling out 20-gallon Pro Series cold-brewing equipment last year, Toddy scaled down—way down, to the tune of roughly one pint (or 500 ml) per brewer. The cold-brew pioneers at Toddy recently introduced the industry's first cold- brew cupping kit, specially designed to enable and simplify side-by-side sensory analysis. Available as a single cupping kit or set of three, the tasting solution features lab-quality brewing tools as well as a cold-brew-specific cupping protocol and cupping form. Cupping kits will be available to ship in late August. To learn more, visit Toddy at Coffee Fest Los Angeles, booth 1641. STELLA AT HER MOST EPIC The Stella Epic by Unic is here, and she is ready to win the barista community over with an all-new and unique way to profile the perfect espresso shot through an intuitive "Expert Mode" programming function. Featuring Unic's Thermalink network technology, the Stella Epic offers exceptional workflow performance for high-volume cafés by using an intelligent power-management system, resulting in one of the most thermally stable and precise brew groups ever made. What's more, Stella Epic features Unic's Easylock system, which facilitates portafilter lock-in with minimal effort. The hydraulically sealed portafilter minimizes barista wrist fatigue, allows for greater consistency between shots, and extends the life of group gaskets. & HOLLA FOR HEMP Elmhurst Milked is thrilled to debut the first hemp milk on the market to be formulated specifically for coffee. Elmhurst's Hemp Barista Edition is crafted with just six ingredients, including real hemp cream. Whether making perfect microfoam or adding a neutral flavor and creamy texture to your morning cup, the food scientists at Elmhurst have crafted an incredible hemp for your coffee needs. Try it for yourself and see why baristas can't believe it isn't whole milk. 56 barista magazine
