    Default The Coffeehouse.... Baristi, Barista, Bariste

    Thought I would start this as we have a few coffee freaks here..


    I will open it with my latest coffee to pop through the door... Ethiopian Bifdu Gudina from Climpsons

    expensive but fancied a treat.. Heirloom variety majoring in Peaches, Honey and Violets

    I really like a quality cup of coffee but have to be careful as it's acidic nature tends to upset my delicate digestion. Nice to have a cup occasionally though.

    Part of the packaging of my coffee machine were two bags of coffee from cafe Pfaff, Paris (where I bought the machine from).

    One is a bag of Mandolino, Italian mix house blend coffee.
    The other is a bag of what has been voted as the "Best Expresso - France 2017".

    I look forward to trying them both!

    Default My first (failed) attempt at a cappuccino

    This morning I felt confident with my new toy that a cappuccino would be easy.
    How wrong could I be.

    I was really not prepared for the steam power it develops and the lack of time to work the milk.

    I know I just need more practice, but it was a bit of a shock.
    I don’t think I had enough milk, and I am not sure the jug is big enough.

    It tasted really good though!
