Ga-Ga for my Gaggia!

(photo I took of a latte prepared as it is sometimes a bowl!)

We bought an espresso machine! Oh, my goodness... I'm in heaven! Especially now that I have gotten the hang of producing a properly pulled espresso, and perfectly foamed milk!
I had gotten to a point where I was buying lattes from the local coffee shops around 4-5 times a week! At $2 a pop, not including the tip, I knew I had to either abandon my love of coffee, or...
These bowls are now on my birthday wish list...
I found these videos to be particularly helpful when starting out...there are a lot more on there too...some good, some not so good. :o)


  1. Love that first photo Khris !! Looks yummy. I'm not a coffee drinker, but that makes me want to become one ! Rory has an espresso maker ... and old one. He wants a new one. Maybe I should look at this brand ?

    Do you always do puzzles in your kitchen ?

    PS ... I left you a long comment on your menu post at the beans blog ...

  2. cool cool cool! Definately worth it when the price of coffe is so high out and about!
    Matt loves ours...of course it is nothing close to the quality that machine is! I am so happy for you, and I love the latte bowls you want for your b-day! cute

  3. I like! I also had become addicted to lattes. Andrew bought me an espresso maker a couple of years ago and I have it still put up all nice and pretty like. I just couldn't get the hang of how to use it. You're right, they should offer classes with the purchase of those machines. Sadly I had to give up lattes, cost got to be too much! I never would have thought to look up videos on how to.. maybe i can go back to enjoying me lattes

  4. Ooohhh, nice! Congrats!! :) I do miss my old job, where we had one of those and I got free coffee every day. What is your drink of choice? Just curious!
    I love puzzles too... your picture made me want to do one... maybe I'll start one tonight. :)
