You know what's the best thing to find when you've had a tough day after a
tough week, and you
walk up the icy steps after walking the dogs on a cold, cold night, and open
the door? A large
package, with the return name of "Brett" written on it...
*: >})*
I am now the proud owner of the Hamilton Beach Cappuccino Plus Espresso
Maker that used to
sit in the Mason home!
Had no decaf in my little stash, so (especially since I was already wired!)
I had to wait until this
morning to try it. Well, actually, I was going to wait until I could view
the instructional video on a
friend's VCR, but with the helpful, simple how-to Brett sent to me, along
with the reassuring
message that I will not break the machine - I threw all care to the wind &
made my first espresso
at 4:30 a.m. this morning.
Oh - heaven! I used Harrar Horse - so sweet, delicious. Son woke up when I
was grinding the
coffee - "I smell coffee," so I made some for him, also.
Mmmm - I used the two lovely, Parisian 'Traditional Winnings" espresso cups
from Ginny.
Delicious and artsy!
Then when I came back to the kitchen I saw that son made a French Press pot.
Lesson learned: drinking heavenly espresso, and *then* a French Press makes
the French
Press coffee taste weak, weak, weak!
Son agrees - so - time for our second espresso portion, one each.
O.K., I had a busy day ahead of me, and since I was going to have a blood
test in the
afternoon, and it needed to be a fasting one - my espresso was my food for
the day.
Maybe it was my imagination, but I could taste that lingering flavor all
day... sigh.. can't
wait til tomorrow...
Thanks Brett & Debbie - now I'm *really* spoiled!!

The kindness of people on this list never ceases to amaze me..

Lynne
btw - Ethiopian Harrar Horse tastes *so* good as an espresso. Hey - I forgot
- I need some lemon peel.. remembering many years ago when I was young,
adventurous & visited Portugal, Spain, Switzerland.. memories of hot
chocolate, espresso, lemon peel, sangria & windmills.. and espresso... the
stuff that dreams are made of!
I raise my cup to Brett & Debbie & their brood - today will be my tomorrow's
memories!

Three cheers for Brett!!
Welcome to the dark side Lynne.  My first "real" espresso made at home 
was in a cup gifted from Ginny also.
Study hard for your blood test.

Jerry -
Wish I didn't break my digital camera this past spring - I so wanted to get
some
pics online. The cups are so pretty - can't wait until I have guests who
appreciate
espresso (translated: daughter & her boyfriend).
My first "real" espresso made at home
<Snip>
Didn't study. Decided to wing it. :>})  Hope I'll be graded on a scale (as
opposed to
being *weighed* on a scale - ugh). My doctor was very surprised that I had
fasted til
my 3 p.m. appt. Little did she know that my espresso was more than enough to
carry me through!

My first shot this morning was ruined - too sleepy - I think I didn't make
sure I cleaned the edge of the portafilter.
Second one was fantastico - then we decided to try a cappacino. That was
wonderful - I hate sugar in coffee, so a sugar-less cappa was a first for
me. Son asked for a second one, so he is wired for work (ironically, for
Dunkins').
Have to keep myself from having more... dark side, indeed...
