You long timers probably remember I was a barista when I first started posting here....when I met my now husband I was at that job (I was a barista for about 9 years), but hung up that part of my life in 2003.

Kirk always "joked" about getting me a (high-end) machine so I could make him lattes  :p (Cause until he met me, he hadn't been a latte drinker.....then I wrecked him quickly.)

In 2003 though machines that I would have wanted (snob alert) were very expensive.

Last week was our 10th anniversary of deciding we "liked liked" each other  :cool: I got an early present - an espresso machine that was worthy of my time (he scored an online deal of 50% off new!).

Within a couple test drinks I had it back. You don't forget how to do it. Just sayin'.....if you are in the area, come on by for a latte  :laugh:

Candy Cane Peppermint Mocha:


Made with handmade Candy Cane Peppermint syrup (natural dyes):


Granola Bar Latte:


Made with my handmade coconut Syrup and Almond Syrup:




Or my Gingerbread Latte:


And yes, the syrup is also housemade  :;): None of that commercially made junk full of preservatives at Sarah's Espresso Hut!

And yeah, he likes it. "Hey, Barista! I wanna double shot gingerbread mocha." "And I got a tip for ya! Work faster!"

:laugh:

PS: If anyone is interested, I posted the recipes up on my personal blog (Gazing In)

Well *I thought* we were special because we just got a Keurig, but I guess pushing one button just makes me a lazy coffee drinker :)

Looks yummy and comforting!

Yes Sir! Coming right up!

After my last divorce, still living in Athens, GA, I frequented a basement bar of questionable character and anonymous clientele.  Good place to never see the ex.

It was right under one of the first true coffeehouses of downtown Athens.  Their brew and barristas we local legends.

My favorite after-work libation was a glass of water, a neat scotch, and a triple es.  One night, the manager brought my triple down and sat down at the bar with me.  I asked, "What's up, Sam?"

He answered, "I just came to see you explode or vaporize or whatever you're gonna do.  That's your third triple."

This morning's oatmeal was coconut milk, brown sugar, cinnamon and dried sugared apples I liberated off my neighbors tree last summer.
Delicious!

I also hope to visit sub-Sahara Africa one day.  No definite plans, but maybe 2015 or something like that... hopefully.  If I encounter the coffee you mentioned, I'll give it a try too.

Yes, please feel free to share with us your 'pedestrian passion'.  :D

I had a customer years ago who drank Breves made with heavy cream. Usually a 20 ounce Venti size. Yep, it had a 16 ounce container of heavy cream (what you make whipping cream with) in it. Eek.
