Resident coffee guy (and token Y chromosome) Simon reppin’ the Friday Foodie Five. I’m throwin’ y’all some serious ‘spro stuff this week while Yuli is off in Detroit!

1. Dichotomy, Coffee and Spirits Bar in Texas

Dichotomy

Dichotomy (Texas) is an espresso/spirit bar with a beautifully simplistic layout. With the Mod Bar, a unique espresso machine with an under-the-counter boiler, they’re able to retain their open-concept space.

2. The Spirit espresso machine

Spirit

Former La Marzocco employee, Kees van der Westen, gives baristas something to drool over with the Spirit. Bonus points if you noticed the custom Mahlkonig K30 to the left.

3. The Balancing Siphon

Balance Siphon

Similar to the siphon brewers that have been regaining popularity in recent years, the balancing siphon offers an automatic shut-off (at upwards of 10-20 times the cost).

4. Custom GS3 Espresso Machine

Custom GS_3

Custom La Marzocco GS/3 with skateboard wheel legs, engraved portafilter handle, and the sexiest orange paneling of all time.

5. Naked Portafilter

Slayer Bottomless

Useful as a learning/diagnostic tool, and wonderful to photograph, bottomless (naked) portafilters let you get a closer look at how espresso is being extracted.

Friday Foodie Five

Normally here on Friday Foodie Five I try to bring you some of the best stuff I’ve seen and heard online during the week. But I have to tell you, we here on the Toronto Squad have been working hard for a long time on something and we need to share.

For what feels like months, but has really only been a few weeks, Ama, Megan and I have been busy planning and co-curating an open call group art show called Fat In Public and the show’s opening was last night!

I would love nothing more than to share a few images with those of you who could not make it out to the opening and will not be in Toronto for the show’s week-long run at 2186 Dundas Gallery.
