A Beautiful New Friendship

Do you remember when I was whining about breaking my French press a couple of weeks ago? Well, this afternoon, I remedied that sad situation with a lovely little stovetop espresso set.

Mmmm. I see a lot more caffeine in my immediate future. Mwahahahaha.

This is the espresso maker. Water goes in the bottom. Espresso grounds goes into the middle section, which is the filter. Then you stick it on a stove and as the water goes up through the grounds, it collects in the top of the pot. When the pot is full, you take it off the heat. It took me about 3 minutes to make four full shots of espresso. YUM.

This is the milk frother. Put some milk in, put it on a burner, and pump the churner to froth the heck out of it.

This Halloween evening has featured chai lattes & cappuccinos. Total win. I can now lay my sadness over my French press to rest and go berserk on espresso. Mwahahahah. Come on over if you want some!
