the best part of waking up...

i have no idea how, but this blog has thus far managed to remain free of probably the most compelling reason for me to get out of bed when my alarm goes off in the morning. and really, there's some much more exciting news that kim will probably tell you about in the next couple days, but for whatever reason, i thought i'd post a bit about my love for making espresso.

here's my setup. the espresso machine (on the right) is from a spanish company called ascaso, and the grinder is from the italian company rancilio. it is basically impossible for you, reader, to imagine (1) how many completely uninteresting facts there are to discuss about these machines and especially the ins and outs of pulling shots of espresso, and (2) how much restraint it is requiring of me to not write out said uninteresting facts. so, instead of all that information, here's a picture of yesterday's drink, which summarizes my feelings nicely:

i've found one place in lincoln (so far) that actually makes a proper cappuccino. cafe italia, about 1 mile from my house. it was wonderful. unfortunately, scooters, the mill, and nuvibe all failed jeremy's rules of good cappuccino.
