Hi Buddy, welcome to the Sweet Maria's Homeroast List. We're a great
group of people, but probably not the best folks to ask about this sort
of thing. In coffee shops, they generally start with espresso--for which
an espresso machine is needed. I'm betting you would be hard pressed to
find a list member here who tries to make espresso drinks with a
breakfast coffee (I'm assuming that is a commercial blend of some sort)
brewed in a regular coffee pot and French vanilla cream.
Enjoy your Cuisinart coffee maker. My nephew has one of them, and likes
the coffee it makes.
