Yep, you read that right- I am indeed a latte drinkin', blog writin', pedal driven, lover of fishes. Dam proud too.
|Bialetti man giving me the finger?|
Celebrated our first coffee production out of the new kitchen (yay!), a rather creative endeavor given the fact we are still without a kitchen sink.
Wanted to review this little beauty for some time, a Christmas gift from my parents. As an espresso devotee, I've been wondering how to carry that addiction out into the field, looks like Bialetti has the answer. Who knew we'd be field testing it in the kitchen?!
Bialetti makes a variety of these, sized by the number of ounce servings of espresso each machine churns out. We have the 6-oz size, perfect for one cup of coffee.

|while the bialetti heats up, churn a hot cup o milk|
|aerolatte whisk foams milk in seconds- thx kids!|
|damn near perfect latte|
Start to finish, it's a 5 minute cup o joe. Dam good too- better than our elec espresso machine by a long shot, dint expect that.
All in all, I'm looking forward to espresso around the campfire this summer, can't beat that with a stick!
EDIT: March 2011. Finally got to field test the Bialetti in Moab.
Bring the coffee bar with you.
