My mother in law recently sent us an espresso machine for christmas. We wanted one to try and break our Starbucks habit (spending more money than we should have... evil drive thrus!!). I think I am drinking more lattes than EVER now that my husband has perfected his technique and the recipe he found. He's almost at barista competition level, in my opinion.
Tonight he bought the peppermint syrup from Starbucks... heaven!
I would post more but I'm too hyped up on caffeine.... =)
