Our very 1st cappuccino machine!  When you get something new, do you use it often or break it in slowly?  Thoughts?  A dear friend of my wife sent us a cappuccino machine.  Both my wife and I NEVER used a machine like this.  Sara went out with a friend, I stayed home and studied two pages.  The diagram and what each item on the diagram represented.  1 item I had no idea what the function on the machine would do.  It was called the tamper.  The instructions said to tamper lightly.  Push lightly.  So I pushed it lightly.  What happened?  Nothing.  Oh.  Its only function is to LEVEL off the coffee grinds in the filter holder.  OHHHHH!  Got it.  Got the picture?

Now this weekend I practiced and practiced on a house guest and Sara.  I made a LOT of expresso and cappuccino.  I even ran water through and made a hot chocolate.  Yum.  Maybe I’ll try lemon grass in the filter holder.  The steamer is a lot of fun or maybe it’s STILL too new.  I pictured a lot of cleaning, but it’s not much.  Maybe even faster than using the regular coffee machine.  Ok, maybe I’m the last one my age to have a machine like this in the home or maybe I have a new appreciation for the Barista at Dunkin, Starbucks or your local coffee shop/cafe.

Today is day 3 and I love our cappuccino machine.  I feel like the bartender in my home.  The Barista.  So fancy.  OMG, the coffee filter also takes a K-cup too.  I heard you pay for the plastic and few ounces of coffee.  Is it worth it to get the K-cup?  Do you manage the grinds or get the portion cups?  Maybe the extra seconds saves LOTS of time?  How else can we save time with services in our community?  1 comes to mind.  What am I thinking?  Still in the honeymoon phase of a new appliance too?
