Luxury hotels should be better at these things than the little coffeehouse around the corner. But it's often the opposite!

A few exceptions worth mentioning: FS Dubai (excellent espresso), FS Milan, Café Gray Deluxe, Café Cha at the Siam, Park Hyatt Bangkok (who would have thought?)...
No specialists or artisans usually manning the machines. Just a paid employee.

Park Hyatt Seoul does a mean one too at their Lounge!
