A few words from our CEO, Kent Bakke:
I would like to give a formal and sincere tribute to Terry Z (as he is most famously know) for all the contributions that he has made to our world of espresso coffee. Terry has been a long time creative energy in providing leadership, innovation, passion and invention. His company, Espresso Parts, has been a valuable source for exotic, custom espresso machine creations, spare parts, coffee expertise and an often driving force in supporting a myriad of coffee activities. I would be remiss without also acknowledging is dear partner and wife, Kelly. Together they created a special place and special family in Espresso Parts. On behalf of many of us in the industry, Thank You Terry and Kelly and a hearty Congratulations! I am proud to be counted among your many friends.”
My best, Kent Bakke

The docudrama cinematography combined with onscreen charisma oozing from Kyle will sure to make all the lady baristas from around the country gush.
