Wake up and smell…
The past week or so has been pretty hectic and disruptive to my “normal” way of life.
Things are starting to settle back into their pattern – at least until I interrupt it again – hopefully this time by choice.
Right before I left my last job (and my last country! ), my pals from the office chipped in together and got me a lovely little Moka Express and a starter stash of some great coffee grounds from the Coffee Mill on Emek.
I’m not the world’s heaviest coffee drinker – in fact weeks can go by without me getting a ‘fix’, but when the occasion strikes, it’s nice to have good coffee to drink.
So tonight was the first time I unpackaged the Moka Express, loaded it with delicious-smelling Irish Cream coffee, and set the little device on the stove.
Within about 3 minutes, the entire thing was done. Delicious! I just have to figure out if I can pre-mix any sweetener into the device and have a simple, one-step coffee maker – better than any percolator or mix or whatever I’ve had until now.
So if you get a chance, and you like coffee, try a cup from one of these nifty little thingies. It’s quite a refreshing reminder that coffee can be better than good – it can be great!
So here’s a shout out to Shai, Aviad, Ruth, Dario and anyone else I’ve forgotten to list here. Thanks for reminding me that simple things can be really great.
