Shots are flowing and milk is steaming at the coffee bars on this first day of the TED conference in Long Beach, CA thanks to the generosity of our partner La Marzocco, who provided espresso machines and Mazzer grinders, as well as Marco precision hot water delivery systems for TED this year.
La Marzocco has also made possible a do-it-yourself bar where attendees may work hands-on with the espresso machines and with one-on-one guidance from a Barista Guild representative to prepare an espresso beverage.
“TED is such a unique experiential learning opportunity. In our past participation we’ve found that attendees are curious and hungry to learn more about coffee and the equipment used to prepare coffee. We look forward to providing that experience,” says Kent Bakke, CEO of La Marzocco International.
