Last fall I was introduced by a friend to the moka express stovetop espresso maker. Since then, I have wanted to purchase one when my drip coffee maker reaches the end of it’s life. (I am currently thinking of ways to more quickly wear out my drip coffee maker. Anyone have any ideas?) Therefore, I was excited to try out this coffee maker, that the artist house is equipped with. I have been trying not to miss a sunrise in this beautiful place and have been waking up prior to my morning excursions with this caffe macchiato. Mmmmmm.
