Video 6 – A visit to Gwilym

I forgot my video camera, but thankfully I had made a little video on Sunday.  The title says it all really.

Questions for next week in the comments please!


  1. Such a cliffhanger! What’s the machine? The one Squaremile has graciously been storing for him?

  2. Great videos. Where do i find the t-shirt Gvilym is wearing?

  3. Hi James,

    thanks for the vid, I’ve been meaning to go there for quite a while now, but somehow it’s harder as the cart is not up on Saturday (and Sunday being my lazy all-day-pijamas day).

    Perhaps Gwil could get a Slayer?:)


  4. slightly irrelevant – that music is amazing! could you post a link if t-shirts do become available?

  5. Question for Gwilym: What do you think is the most common reason for sub-par “specialty” coffee in the US? ~ Thanks

  6. Hi James, thanks for the videos…

    My question for Gwilym:
    What should be the ultimate goal of a professional barista?
    How is the “work-a-day” aspect of the barista craft related to achieving that goal?

    Congrats, Gwimym and thanks, James.

  7. Great video James, felt just like being there again but glad you didn’t film me the week before – for those that haven’t met Gwilym, that’s exactly how he is.

    Here’s a question for Lou: Is she sick of having tourists like myself jump behind the machine?

    Say hi to Gwilym, Lou and the other James from me!


    PS I know which machine he’s getting unless it’s changed in the last 7 days…

  8. Hi James,
    well done on some very imformative short films, a question for Gwilym for next week, if he was ever in a Barista comp, would he consider to scrape the crema off his espresso for his cappuccino before he served them to judge and explane why he was doing so?

  9. My question to Gwilym is:

    If you fancied a change and wanted to open a cart/shop some where else in the UK Or World where would it be and why?


  10. Question for Gwilym:

    Given Gwilym’s rockstar barista status, how does he deal with the endless entourage of lady fans and what tips does he have for budding amateurs?

  11. whats the machine ?? We dying to know ..i’d also like to know if you have any advice for up and coming talent ? p.s another great video :)

  12. Here’s my question for Gwilym:

    Why aren’t you wearing a tweed?

  13. question for Gwil:

    what will be different for him compared to previous WBC winners? will he travel as much as previous WBC winners? is it different for him because he is the owner of the business and not an employee?
