Lucie Loves... London // Introducing Costa Coffee Club's New Barista Masterclass
*Sponsored advertorial in collaboration with Costa Coffee*
As a huge coffee lover, I generally have at least one or two cups a day.
I’m usually a latte fan (mainly because I didn’t actually have a clue what the difference was between that and a flat white) but over the last five weeks of my 8 week body transformation I’ve had to cut down and swap my trusted milky fave to a simple Americano or Long Black, which isn’t too much of a hardship, as long as it’s decent coffee!
This week, I had the absolute pleasure of attending one of Costa Coffee Club’s new masterclasses. I arrived amidst a gaggle of other bloggers – mainly lifestyle and mummy types – and settled down to learn a bit more about the history of Costa – the two brothers behind the brand, why it’s never a good idea to open a Costa in Italy due to discerning Italians, and also about their special Old Paradise Street Roastery in London.
When it came round to having a go at creating my own flat white, I made an absolute pig’s ear of the florette design… However, I DID manage to make the milk all shiny and silky, as requested by top barista, Matyas.
