Dreams Of Do-It-Yourself Dolloping Come True

Three years ago, Ed promised me that he'd don beige khaki's and a green apron to become my very own personal barista. That day has arrived, folks.

Today we bought this cute little espresso machine for the truck. Did I just type what I think I typed? I have an espresso machine in my truck!!

Starbucks just came out with instant coffee, a product twenty years in the making, thinking it might help rejuvinate their company; the analysts don't think it's going to work.

Now that I have my little espresso maker (the machine, not Ed), I won't just not be buying their instant coffee but I also will not be buying as many lattes in their stores either. I'm not saying I'll never buy a latte again, but I'm really going to enjoy doing my own steaming, frothing and dolloping.

This new truck of your is just too much. I keep expecting you to tell us about your new hot tub one of these days. I am sure that you will get plenty of use out of your new machine. My wife gave me an electric Mokka (Italian coffee pot) for Christmas, no more worrying about blowing up the stove top one.
