i have to say, one of my true pleasures in life is great coffee. a friend of mine once said, "coffee is like grown up bottles for adults" and i agree. there is nothing more comforting than the first cup in the morning, late afternoon or after a wonderful dinner with friends.
my dear friend surprised me with the most amazing gift, the "saeco". we call it "the crema" ...if you dont have one, i certainly think it is the best gift you could ever give yourself. truly.
