    Okay, so I don't sit in front of my computer all day doing nothing... I sit in front of my computer all day drinking coffee.

    My espresso machine is an Andreja Premium, and I brew all espresso ristretto (double shots, thirty seconds) I don't have pictures right now of the crema I get, especially with Yemeni beans, but will put some up in case some of you are coffee nerds and would like explicit coffee photos.

    Here's what I do to the espresso:

    No, I don't put sugar in that (really, when it's good, you don't need any).

    Time to go fix myself a cup of coffee. That almost looks too good to drink...almost.
    Good to see I'm not the only one that has a whole ceremony for fixing a cup of coffee. Mine always ends up looking like much uglier though.

    Ohhh...that is so beautiful! How do you do that? I need to learn how to do that....seriously!

    (That's a great Deruta cup too - I used to sell that pattern...I forget the name though...Raffaellesco? I love Majolica ceramics. I have some nice Mexican Majolica from Uriarte....Hmmm. Now I miss that job....)

    That's really pretty, Tien :)

    I saw a show on (I think it was) the Food Network that showed a bunch of baristas showing off their swirly techniques. I get about as fancy as dropping some sugar and half & half into my mug.

    OMG, Heather, you know Deruta? I used to work for a place that would sell deruta, and I got such a great discount... unfortunately a lot of it has broken, and I went to another ceramics place to get some more, and the cups were 50-100$ per... a little too steep for me. Aren't they beautiful? And, if I remember correctly, thsi design is called rafaellesco.

    Yep, I used to work at this place called "Cookworks" in Albuquerque and Fanta Se. We sold such beautiful dinnerware, including the Deruta and Vietri, and that great octagonal stuff from Provence. I loved that job....

    Um, I would link in the url but, apparently the "fine" management finally did them in...
