an espresso lover's blog

Blessed be the local coffee bar which carries the Ottolina Maracaibo top espresso coffee!. Since my dealer Temperato went off on vacation I've been using depressing and often stale beans from other bars. Today I bit the bullet and bought a pound Maracaibo top at double the price I usually pay, but it was worth it. I'm feeling happy now after a nice double cappa and a double shot of espresso, and not the least seeing a good sirupy extraction again. Good coffee can really work as sort of an antidepressant sometimes! :)

Still waiting for my popper to arrive from Denmark. I really hate waiting for packages to arrive. Sigh, I get so disappointed when it is not in my mailbox in the morning ;-|. When it arrives I'll post pictures from the roasting and of course some notes on the quality of the roast.
