My friend and colleague Louis Claus mailed me these pictures.
Louis is owner of �de Blonde Pater� (The Blond Father) a beautiful outlet in Nijmegen in the east of the Netherlands.
He was also the first Dutch barista finalist ever. Although he did not win that final (sorry Louis J ) He impressed because he did latte art, And in those years he was the only one in the Netherlands.
The pictures are taken on a big dance festival in Nijmegen.(12.000 people) Louis made the coffee on this festival. I hope this will be a new norm. Good music, good atmosphere and good espresso made on good machines by good baristi!
I often tell about my experience in beautiful Oslo. We visited a club called Uncle Donald.
Good atmosphere, good music, good drinks and beautiful people.
But the best of all was the espresso bar.
I had never seen this in the Netherlands. A Espressobar in a trendy club!
I also remember that the espresso was very bad, and made by somebody without any spore of passion. But the is initiative perfect.
