Latte. Mocha Latte. Mmmmm...yes these are items that only a few weeks ago I considered indulgent. I have to admit I was a plain ol' regular coffee with a splash of milk kind of guy.
However since my wife and I received a fancy-dancy espresso machine for Christmas (thanks Mom and Dad!!) my coffee habits have been revolutionized! I have discovered the sheer joy of making and partaking in such delectable specialty coffees. It is a fine feeling to sit down after a day at the office and enjoy a fine specialty coffee in my fine home with my fine family. The whole experience is...well, FINE!!
My oldest daughter is a big fan of the machine too, she is quite proud of herself because she can now make her own hot chocolate. Now the trick will be to teach her how to make a latte and then have her get up early each day (or maybe just on Sundays) so my latte is ready for me when I arise. Ahh...to dream!

though it...made with love, for my wife!
