This past month, at the London Coffee Festival, the London Belle Baristas’ team broke the Guinness World Record for producing the most espressos made in one hour. Using 31 commercial espresso machines (La Marzocco’s included) they produced 12,005 espressos at a rate of 3.33 espresso shots per second!

The official record was held by a Polish barista team with 3,386 shots, and then an unofficial world record was claimed by a team from Brisbane, Australia making 5,061 espressos. All of this barely even compares to the new record of 4x the amount – congrats London Belle Baristas!
