London-based Rob Popper is a triathlete, trainer, masseur and die-hard bicycle and coffee nut. He’s been experimenting with home roasting for some time now, has a real passion for traditional dark roasts prevalent in Italy – ‘black is the new black’ – and has been testing his blends on the public with a small mobile pour over rig until now. Rob felt it was time to take a step up to a mobile espresso rig and after a couple of meetings and a test ride at our factory took the plunge and placed his Velopresso order. Rob’s long-term plan is to return to his native USA (NY state) with his Velopresso, but for the time being he will be operating in East London and will be our nearest Velopresso operator. Welcome to the family Rob!
