Customer Comments

I really enjoyed your caffeine drenched barista training class today. You are a funny guy and an excellent speaker and instructor.

... bestowing praises upon you for your charming wit and excellent presentation skills.

Great place to have a home barista training. They will even adapt it to your specific espresso machine. Very knowledgeable and useful. Plus they have a great selection of coffee grinders and espresso machines. Will definitely buy my stuff there!

Just wanted to thank you for a great training session... Bill and I learned a lot from you and wow what a difference. Not only does our coffee taste better but I'm so excited to have creamy milk all of the time - it just seems so easy now that I follow your instructions.

You are a great instructor and we appreciate your passion and enthusiasm - thanks for an enjoyable day of learning.

Tracy B.

Many thanks for a very educational and enjoyable experience on Saturday. It was an eye opener for me as to the importance of quality machines which machines I had really not seen before.

Best place for all things espresso! Friendly knowledgeable staff, outstanding products for virtually every budget, and informative, laid back sessions to help you improve and elevate your home espresso and overall technique to that of a professional espresso bar.

My wife and I found their lessons on achieving the perfect espresso and cappuccino at home to learning about your own espresso maker’s capabilities to finding the perfect beans for that awesome shot of espresso very interesting and helpful. We have a semi automatic La Pavoni and a super automatic Saeco, and Zuccarini gave us great advice for both.

As we’re espresso aficionados, we’ll definitely be back when we’re in the market for a new espresso machine! Thanks!

The class was great and I picked up lots of tips. It was also interesting to listen to the other questions. It's a great service for you to hold the class. Thanks again.

Just a note to thank you and the staff at Zuccarini for your great introduction to being a home barista. My wife and I enjoyed both the presentation and the demonstrations and came away armed with much more knowledge about what we are looking for in a home espresso maker (so much better than the Youtube videos I have been watching).

Sometimes it just the little things that make the big difference, For example, the fact that you were using a dedicated espresso grinder... I had never thought of that and now that I've seen one, that will be the type we will be getting. Plus your simple explanation about needing to introduce air into the milk before it gets too hot, to produce a good microfoam... I had no idea that is how milk reacted to steam.

Thanks again for the class. Your years of experience really shine through.

Thanks again for all your help and awesome customer service and very helpful training session.

I was going to email you myself to thank you for the informative training session. Although both Juanita and myself have been making espressos for 8 months, it was still nice to verify our technic.

You have a great sense of humour which was greatly appreciate and made the 2 hours pass by very quickly.

I just wanted to thank you again for the home barista training session... It was very interesting and informative. My wife and I learned some interesting things to improve our espresso at home. The Reg Barber tamper is great!

I look forward to visiting Zuccarini again; the products are great and the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Thanks again and keep up the great work!

Giovanni and Joanna P.

Just a quick note to say thanks. My kids and I really enjoyed your salesman extraordinaire's session and we found it a great value-add to our purchase. Also, our coffees are noticeably improving...

Lenard H.

Thank you very much for inviting me to the home barista training ... you did a wonderful job answering everyone’s questions and entertaining everyone in the process!
