Starbucks Reserve - not quite high end espresso

Starbucks Reserve will probably appeal more to Starbuck Coffee drinker, than true coffee geeks

“Preferred as coffee. @Starbucks Nova Resende, #Brazil. Strong hints of classic #Starbucks taste, lacking exotic flavors. #MRespressoRating 83pts. #coffee…”

How to Make a Flat White like Starbucks

https://instagram.com/p/zFgticLNyZ/?modal=true

 
The Flat White is a simple drink to make, but there are a few key tips to make it right. Here's how to make a great Flat White. 

1. Get high quality beans, I suggest more bolder flavored as opposed to the fruitier coffees.
2. Grind fine
3. You need a professional quality espresso marker. A $200 espresso maker wont have the pumping power to exact the flavor a flat white should be made with.
5. Use a double shot portafilter, and pack the espresso tight
6. Make two 3/4 shots of espresso ( the more crema the better)
7. Use whole milk. 
8. Steam the milk, but put the steam wand deeper into the milk to cream less forth. (this is key)
9. Add nothing' no syrups or sugars. (it's a simple drink)
10. Pour your milk into your espresso.

It's that simple

Also feel free to follow me on instagram as I post a lot of coffee reviews: http://instagram.com/rizzo_mb/

Do you need to use badly roasted, stale coffee like Starbucks does?

So Google"s  Mobile Algorithm Update might be it's biggest ever

Will it effect how we create content? - Would like to hear some thoughts.

#google #seo
Google's Zineb Ait Bahajji is quoted as saying at SMX Munich the upcoming mobile-friendly algorithm will impact more sites than their Panda or Penguin algorithms.

It will have minimal impact. First, it only affects mobile. Second, much of the Serps currently on page one are already mobile friendly. Third, it will not move a site that isn't already ranking high to page one. So bottom line, we will not see that much of a change in the Serps.

An hour long, presentation, but worth it, if you have the time. Guy and Peg give a lot of great tips.

Could you perhaps repost with your overview of the video, some timestamps, something more than "this is good"
