Yes... but if the shot isn't perfect you know it and won't serve it.  You also hand craft your blends and roast them to perfection... and you touch the coffee with human hands.

Bryan,
Thank you very much for this comment. How easy we forget what this is really
all about. It's not about the coffee. It's our human experience with the
coffee. Machines only come between us and the humans we want to connect
with.

MiKe is a human who uses machine but sadly a barista I had a shot from
last week had been trained to be a human machine.

That's why I love roasting stove-top so much - I feel so much more connected
to the roast.
