Hope you'll have time for a coffee story, as my card celebrates the liquid for today's Inspiration Challenge. I grew up on French Roast in the can blended with Chicory...from the Cafe du Monde in New Orleans. I thought it was the most sophisticated coffee around until I ended up in coffee lovers paradise, Seattle! In the early days of the 'buck, they would conduct coffee colleges, where you would attend for three nights and discover all the ends and outs of coffee growing, roasting, and of course the sexy, streamline machines that brought forth the espresso I had grown to adore! They taught about perfect pours and three layers and oh the crema...not to mention the smell...well, 15 years and 3 espresso machines later, I still enjoy the ritual of morning cappuccinos with my DH. He's strictly a latte man which leaves all the foam for me! Oh I love it when it's a win for both of us!!! I've stepped up over the years to a more expensive machine, but mine, RED, like a sleek Italian sports car just hums when I prime the pump...life's simple pleasures!
So tell me about you, are you a coffee snob or a tea drinker? Do you have a ritual you would share, I'd love to hear.
