Coffee & Espresso Expert Eric T
Is a coffee journalist a thing?
  • Eric T

    I'm a coffee lover who has been involved in the coffee sector for over 10 years. I've spent many years behind an espresso machine making lattes and espresso and several years traveling the world while drinking coffee and visiting cafes. (If you want some recommendations for cafes in Tokyo let me know!) I've been lucky enough to repair many grinders, meet many coffee legends, and attend many cuppings.

    Aside from being an expert here at Curated, I spend my time keeping my two kids in the right kind of trouble and writing articles about coffee, cafes, and coffee culture. You can find some of my writing on websites like

    A.J.'s experience with Eric
    Eric T has been super helpful by recommending some options and working with me on my very particular requests. He was readily available to give me suggestions for a espresso machine, grinder, and all the accessories I need. He was even able to put together a short video giving an overview of all the options that was super helpful.

    Was very happy that Eric was able to help me find a couple very good options. Going into it, I knew I wanted an espresso machine that made a good quality shot. But I didn’t know what specs I should look for. He found 3 options for me and was so kind to explain the perks of each one. In the end, I bought his most recommended to me. Can’t wait to get it here and try it out for myself!

    Eric is top notch!
    I wasn’t sure about a manual or automatic espresso machine so I asked Eric for help in deciding. He quickly got to the heart of the matter with some questions and explanations. He was able to price-match and I’ve got the added bonus that he will be accessible when I may have questions later. I recommend Eric highly for his expertise and honesty.

    Eric's the man!
    I'm brand new to the coffee world, it was overwhelming how every site and review out there had a different sponsored opinion on what the best machine was for my budget. Eric was very knowledgeable and worked with me to understand the differences between machines I was considering, but also gave me some pros/cons of machines at different price points that I hadn't been considering. He also recommended some accessories, and let me know how important each was to add at the moment. Very excited to start making some better coffee at home with my new setup! Trust Eric with your coffee needs!

    Eric is a pleasure to deal with!
    We had a delivery problem and he helped resolve things in short order. We're still learning about our machine but I'll probably be bothering Eric with questions for some time. His response is immediate, friendly, and helpful. Give this guy a raise!

    Excellent experience shopping for an espresso machine. Eric was spot on with the questions he asked and the knowledge he shared. As a newbie, it was a bonus to know I can contact him at any time for help using my new machine. Shipping was fast and communication was excellent.

    Super helpful and patient!
    Eric helped me decide which espresso machine was right for me. He was super helpful and patient over a period of weeks as he sent me suggestions and listened to my questions and concerns. Once I made the purchase he stayed connected, messaging me when the item shipped and when delivery was scheduled. He even sent me video tutorials and was just an overall huge help for me making a decision for a purchase that was a bit expensive. I am very happy with the machine I purchased, the Breville Barista Touch Impress! Thanks Eric!

    Such a genuine guy.
    I was not at all expecting to purchase an espresso machine the day I did, and I will say it was because of his help. Eric helped me find a machine that fit my needs perfectly with such ease. I would recommend him to anyone interested in buying any coffee machine, super super helpful and genuine guy. :)
