Running for Coffee

Posted Jul 08 2010 6:47am

Want to see two of my new favorite kitchen gadgets?

I love this stovetop espresso maker!

And, as a CSN Preferred Blogger, I was able to review this awesome Nespresso frother!

I love a good latte. I love the mix of perfectly brewed espresso, steamed milk, and that little bit of froth.

But I do not enjoy the $3-4 per latte that I end up spending at coffeehouses.

I’ve been wanting an espresso maker for home, but we’re seriously lacking in counter space, so I knew I could never actually have one of the big, bulky machines.

The stovetop espresso maker was the perfect solution. I had just enough space in one of our cabinets to store it when it’s not being used, and I also moved a few things around to fit this frother ;)

Just check out that foam!

I don’t have the time to make a latte at home every morning, but I love having the option now.

Plus, it’s just one more way I can make a new thing at home, save some money, and know exactly what I’m getting.

And today, a big cup of coffee was definitely needed. It’s been a crazy morning!

Nick and I got up and went running (woohoo!), came home, showered, made breakfast, and got ready for work. But when I sat down to start working, my computer didn’t load right, so I had to restore it/back it up and wait for it to be ready. Oh well – everything is working now :)

This morning, I made myself a frothy coffee – just regular coffee made in our syphon with some steamed/frothed milk.

The best part about this frother? You can have it froth and heat your milk or just froth it/whisk it and keep it cold! I am in love.

Even though it’s sweltering today, I wanted some hot coffee and a big oatmeal pancake.

The oatmeal pancake was the normal recipe:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • pinch salt
  • cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Cook it in a skillet, flip once, eat!

This morning, I topped it with some White Chocolate Wonderful and diced local peach.

Sweet, salty, melty. Yum.

The perfect post-run breakfast!
