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?
