Espresso machine is here!

Woo Hoo!  The espresso machine arrived 2 days early!  Yay!  I guess the shipping was caffeinated or something.  I was going to do posting like usual, but this is most exciting 😀

This is the Saeco Sirenza.  They used to be sold at Starbucks as the home barista machine.  In fact, the pressure dial says Starbucks on it!

 

We played with it a bit with just the water, then made drinks!

First latte out of the box:

 

It was really good, too!  I am sipping this while posting. We still need to play around with the grind of the coffee to get better crema, but I am just happy to have my lattes back!

The cool thing is that you can just steam milk by itself any time, so we can do steamed cider or steamed chai lattes.  I know you can actually scramble an egg with a steam wand, but I may wait a bit on that  :mrgreen:

I have also become uber busy all of the sudden. What was going to be a normal week has become very busy. I  may be a little sporadic with the posting.  I will, however, be caffeinated!!

Be Sociable, Share!

    What a cool machine, love it! We have a Saeco at home too and love it.

    Well we can shake hands, my week is busy too, always at the end of the year. Seems everyone at work wants to plan another meeting before the end of the year. I never get that, the world doesn’t stop on December 31 so why not do it in January.

    About Mad Men, I’ve heard it’s a good show but (as often happens) I found out about the show when they were already in season 2 here in Holland. Maybe they will rerun it someday or maybe buy the DVD’s.

    Ooh, I don’t drink coffee at all, but I would love some chai latte. 🙂 They never make it hot enough in the coffee houses, so having a machine like that would be a great but expensive solution…
