cafecito

We went out to eat Italian. After dinner, the server suggested coffee. Sometimes I want what the restaurant has. Other times I run home and make it myself.

I like coffee after Italian, or Mexican, Vietnamese, Wendy’s…any

decent coffee without spending a lot

Various things things to make coffee slung up waiting for a wash.

Pictured:

— Bialetti moka pot (makes espresso)
— Bodum French press
— Clever Dripper (pairing the functionality of a French Press with the convenience of a drip brewer)

Not pictured:

— Hario coffee mill
— Rival automatic drip (cheap! $7)

I like experimenting with inexpensive coffee-making equipment.

The moka pot is great for espresso. For normal coffee, of the equipment I have, the French press and the cheap automatic drip machine produce the best results. The Rival machine is surprisingly good. I take it with us on camping trips when there will be electricity. If no electricity, all the others work well with a camp stove.

headlong coffee rush

I have a moka pot (AKA caffettiera or Bialetti) that makes six little cups of espresso. I like to make each batch at capacity, pour all six into one coffee mug, and start my day that way. I might ought to stop doing that, but once in awhile I enjoy it very much. The rush can be nice unless I’m in the middle of Charlotte traffic or the like, then I have to do mental calming maneuvers.

One time I ordered a large iced coffee in a bookstore. It was so good that I gulped it down. Before I left the store, I stopped myself a couple of times by thinking, “did I just scream?” ☕ 😱

just enough
