I've heard good things about the Freshpot Café inside Hawthorne =
Powell's
Books but haven't visited there yet. That machiatto sounded marvelous! =
Your
post got me thinking about the challenges of making home machiattos =
without
excessive milk waste. Just happen to have some Hairbender got as some of =
the
swag @ NWRBC last weekend so decided to replicate. Decided to try =
steaming
about 1.5oz milk in small 5oz SS pitcher. Worked pretty darned good but
still some waste. Quite nice second cup of the morning. Next time will =
try
1oz milk in 3oz SS pitcher! (Obviously) didn't open steam valve all the
way:-)

2) From: Michael Dhabolt
My smallest frothing pitcher is a 6oz and I use half n half for my
machiatto.  Can't say that I really 'have it down pat' (frequently a
little messy).  Let me know how the 3oz pitcher works out.  What
temperature do you pull Hairbender at?
A week or so ago I was in the city and remembered that I was low on
rested stash at home so I bought a couple pounds of Hairbender while
stopping for my obligatory couple of restrittos at Stumptown on
Division.  Next day at home I came to the conclusion that my blends
must be getting better - I prefer mine to the hairbender - didn't used
to be true.  Ouch....pain in shoulder while patting myself on the
back.

Much easier to froth in a small pitcher using Silvia (which doesn't  
get used these days except at parties) than Livia.  Generally have a  
macchiato as my second cup after a cappa, with the leftover froth.
