Espressoverse.com was created by espresso lovers who were frustrated about the low-quality self-serving coffee information found online. As a team of enthusiasts, we care about this and want to change it to help you get only the best espresso coffee info.
Who founded Espressoverse?
Hey there! My name is Ivan Brozincevic and with me is my amazing wife Ilona Brozincevic. Welcome to Espressoverse.com!
About ten years ago, while I was still in college, I started a student job in one of the local coffee shops. You know the story. I was broke, I needed cash, and coffee shops were hiring.
Little did I know that on the first day on the job, I will fall in love with the big old Nuova Simonelli espresso machine.
It was literally love at first sight. But to be honest, the very first cup of espresso I made using that machine was awful.
On the bright side, I was aware of it, and so I decided to become the best at preparing a first-class cup of espresso.
Not so surprisingly, the espresso turned into a latte soon, then into a cappuccino, and macchiato, and when I made my first almond milk chai later, I knew I came a long way in this game.
And so, this job turned into a passion. I fell in love not only with the taste of espresso but also, with the process of preparing it.
Over the years, my passion for coffee stayed with me. Still today, I can’t start my day without a nice cup of joe, which is why we created this website.
As for Ilona, she shares the same story. She too was working as a barista while working on her degree in Financial Mathematics. That’s actually one of the things that brought us together.
Today, we both like to test new espresso gear, taste new espresso blends, and share our findings with you to help you create the best espresso experience in your home.

Why should You trust us?
Since we have a lot of experience in this industry, we want to share our knowledge about espresso coffee, espresso machines, and the process of preparing a perfect cup of joe with you.
Ilona and I are two coffee lovers on a mission to create content that will help you to learn what you need to learn and find what you need to find about espresso. Whether it is your favourite recipe or an espresso machine review, we got your back.
We want to be the best espresso information source and product recommendation service.
This means that our writers and editors will only recommend something if they think it is the best after doing a lot of research and testing. We recommend products based on our independent research, analysis, interviews, and testing.
Also, the products we feature on our site are always chosen based on editorial and product testing standards, not because of affiliate deals or advertising relationships.
We don’t recommend things on our website because people pay us to do them!
We only recommend products to you that we would use ourselves or give to our family and friends. If we tell you to spend your money on something, we believe in it just as much as if we were spending our own money.
We hope you enjoy the content we worked so hard to put together, and if you have any suggestions to make this site better, we’d love to hear them!
Ivan & Ilona 🙂
