Thank you for your suggestion, Tasha. I'll take a look. Maybe I can find one for home use.
I think Espresso is the only Italian drink I'm not much of a fan of because I can't handle strong coffee. It gives me a headache. However, I love it in my tiramisu or if it is used in other deserts and food dishes. I another words, I guess it needs to be diluted down for me. Perhaps if I got into the habit of true Italian espresso it may be a different story, but I don't have that privilege in the states.
Oh yes tiramisu is delicious! I love strong coffee and it is so important for me to start the day with a good cup. I cant take going to a coffee shop that has cappuccino or espresso and it tastes like dirty water! Yuck! I get angry when they do not have the proper coffee in a coffee shop so to save myself the hassle I buy my own and relax on the balcony with a good cuppa that I enjoy with lots of creme!
I like espresso, but I can only drink it when I'm dead tired and only very rarely. Since it makes me feel like my hear is going to beat out of my chest when ever I drink it! But, I don't think I've ever tried making my own espresso; I've only bought it from several local coffee shops.
It can give you a little rush of blood to the heart but that is why you have a Grappa afterwards so that the heart beat can get back to normal.
I have recently become an espresso convert and to be honest I don't know what kind of animal I was before drinking instant coffee! I bought a nespresso machine and it is my pride and joy, it looks like some alien apparatus on my counter but it is so beautiful and the divine smells and tastes that come out of it fill my entire house with the aroma of coffee.
I just got an espresso maker and I really love it. It is just a percolator that sits on the stove. I love making a good cup of espresso after dinner. I also got a milk frothier, so I make lattes and cappuccinos. What is your favorite brand of espresso? I love trying different flavors from different parts of the world. Whenever I travel I also bring back the coffee from that country or place.
My father just bought a new machine and it uses pods. I found that the pods are not as tasty as real coffee ground into your machine and then put onto a stove. The taste is completely different and delicious.
I have to stick to Lavazza Rossa, but they do lots of other blends too. I think most Italian establishments trust and use Lavazza, but some companies do an instant espresso, especially with pods. Nespresso do a good one, and Lavazza make the Keurig espresso pods.
Espresso is good, as long as it contains some milk. I'm not a fan of back coffee.
