We all love the fine Italian scooters, now let's talk about another fine Italian art: coffee! Tell me about your favorite coffee, type of coffee drink, techniques, and pairings.
I'll start: I love starting the day off with a double espresso made with fresh ground Equal Exchange. I pull the shots in my pump driven DeLonghi espresso machine ensuring that the shots take around 20-24 seconds with a rich, thick crema (the light brown, foamy head on espresso).
If I'm feeling self indulgent, I'll make myself an iced caramel macchiato, which is just 2 shots of espresso, milk, and a pump of starbucks caramel syrup, which they'll sell you at the store for around $7 a bottle.
So, tell me your favorite coffee brands and how you make them and why you love them!
