Due to not having had a coffee post in a while and P<'s current obsession, The RQ has decided to share about their love affair…with Black Gold! (Black Gold is also the name of a movie. A must watch for coffee aficionados!) "Let me count the ways to brew coffee: too many." The RQ likes her coffee strong, bold, and dependable…. French Press, Chemex, and espresso are her favorite brew methods. For our wedding anniversary this year we splurged and finally bought a reputable espresso machine. We now enjoy a consistent espresso or cappuccino almost daily. Crossland's CC1 Home Espresso Machine has found a welcome home albeit plan for a learning curve to become comfortable with this machine's peculiarities. Tis the season to be a bit more peppy!
