Happy New Year everyone.  

 

That's great Dev!  Congratulations on getting your historical vehicle license plate for your Spyder.  That's awesome!

Thanks UM. I had it early last year but I didn't get to drive it with the plates except for two days. I had a rough last year and now it's starting to settle out.

Oh that's right.  I sometimes forget that our cars are 20 (or nearly there for the face-lift versions).

I can't have historic plates in Missouri. They require you to keep a log of miles driven and I'm allowed a maximum of 1000 miles in a year. I'm sure I'll be fine.

Is this why Missouri is called the show me state. We have some previsions like that in Maryland with historic tags because some people in old Civics were abusing it. They were proposing that people with Historic tags obtain costly show car insurance which was shot down by the Governor and they lowered the age from 25 to 20 years. 

Apparently I cant use my car for commuting. It must be used for transportation to events but no millage enforcement.  Law enforcement doesn't care since many of them are car people.

I got another batch of coffee from Blue Macaw coffee roasters. Its their 5 bean espresso. Steam up some milk its delicious. 

 I have cut down the amount of milk I use which is coming very close to a flat white which is 50% espresso and 50% steamed milk. Im starting to get why the Italians are obsessed with espresso shots.

Dev,

I have an espresso machine and really enjoy it

I haven’t used the milk steamer yet

I take my coffee black

maybe I will give it a try

Dunno if you guys have heard of the Pinecil but I'm in love. Tiny little USB-C powered soldering iron with an OLED display and an open source firmware. Tons of features like sleep mode when put down, auto wake when picked up, and 65W USB-PD support meaning it can be powered off a battery bank. Amazing! I of course got the optional clear shell because open source goodies need to be clear.

 Dave I take it that you are making Amaracanos which is espresso shot with water.  

 Milk steaming is very difficult depending on the machine. There are some that are automatic where you add the milk  but but those tend to be very coarse and there is clean up involved afterwards. 

  When you have a espresso machine with a traditional steam wand it give you the best result but it takes a lot of practice. The goal is to inject air as the milk is being heated and at the same time spinning and folding it over on its self which requires a good amount of control.  A good result is when the milk is has micro bubbles and looks silky not frothy.  When done right it adds to the texture of the coffee. 

 The Italians drink Lattes and Cortados only for breakfast not like we do. The rest of the day they are drinking straight espressos and they are obsessed. Same with Brazil, Cuba and many other countries. My goal is to acquire the taste so I can enjoy espressos and it starts with weening off the milk. As I am getting closer to my goal Im starting to understand.

I just do the espresso straight,

no added water or milk

usually a double

part of my retirement plan

maybe the next time I’m in a coffee shop I’ll try the milk froth added

When I was a flight tech on flights to Africa

they only had an espresso machine onboard 

so if wanted a coffee that was it

I haven’t added milk to my coffee in 40 years

so I just put down like a shot of good sipping whisky
