An Ode to My Caffettiera
For some reason this morning was the first time it occurred to me that I should also be inspired by the things I do daily at home. Most important on that list is my morning coffee. Making coffee in my lovely caffettiera (this is THE Italian “coffee maker,” no Krupps or papers filters for us) in my retro looking kitchen is a weekend ritual. I’ve got to admit, like many things about me, more and more I find myself mixing the Italian and American. This caffettiera makes enough espresso for 4 normal servings. Typically I drink the whole thing…myself. My roommate likes to make fun of me, but while I love the taste of espresso, I do like the American tradition of having a coffee you can sip on for awhile, hence my mixing of the traditions.
By the way, I’d like to give a special thanks for Rob at the Fiction Desk for giving me tips on using Photoshop so that my photos show up on the web the same way they do on my computer. Thanks!
