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
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!!
