While follow Aussies are winning medals at the Commonwealth Games in India, Australia’s largest home-grown café group The Coffee Club today broke the Guinness World Record for the Most Espressos Made In One Hour with 5,061 espressos.

The Coffee Club’s World Record Team, made up of 20 expert baristas from five of its cafes across Brisbane, had hoped to reach 4,500 but exceeded their own expectations with a record 5,061 espressos poured in one hour.

The existing record of 3,386 espressos was set in Poland’s Rawa Mazowiecka in March this year.

The statistics:
· Five machines were set up with each station manned by four of The Coffee Club’s expert baristas
· Each team poured more than 1,000 espressos each in one hour to reach a total of 5,061
· One espressos was poured every 0.7 seconds in order to reach the new World Record record
· The Coffee Club’s team of 20 expert baristas were in training for over three months to perfect the timing
