Coffee ...... Monday, April 23, 2007






















I love my coffee. It all started back in 2000. We never used to drink coffe only when out and even then it was a cappucino and that was it. Coffee was coffee and that was about it.

Well while living in Sydney I discovered Coffee and Espresso Machines. I got to know and love my Coffee. One day I decided that I wanted a Coffee Machine. Now this was before Coffee Machines were cool and cheap. So I read every article every forum to find out about Coffee Machines. So I came up with a Saeco. I found a dealer over the other side of Sydney that had a display model going cheap. From memory I paid $420 and that was expensive for me back then. We had already moved to Sydney on a pay cut (I know stupidity) and we were renting a dive for an astronomical amount of money. But I was the proud owner of a new Coffee Machine.

Well 7 years later and I still have my faithfull Coffee Machine. I've thought a couple of times it is on it's last legs. So my dilema, do I upgrade???? Do I risk the relationship I have with my machine, I just know it and I know how to make coffee with it. We are a team :) So do I risk buying a new machine that just doesn't make a coffee as good as mine.

Oh my other love is Coffee Mugs! I could buy a new Coffee Mug every month. I am a bit anal with them as well. I have the Spots and the Stripes. The Girls get the Spots and the Boys get the Stripes. Don't know how that happened it just does ......
