Drinking coffee can become repetitive. Most coffee drinkers will stick to the same drink everyday, at the same time, with the same amount of cream & sugar added. And hey, why not?

Don’t change something that works, right?

Wrong!

Here at Cliff & Pebble, it’s not only our job to provide you with quality espresso machines and grinders but also to expand your coffee repertoire, learn new things and make you the best home barista you can be!
