We tried, maybe it isn't in our blood!
After reading my friend Marti's blog, we decided to make the wonderful Cuban coffee demonstrated on her July 24th post. My husband loves coffee and has many, many, many ways to make it. (did I mention he has MANY ways) :D
He was intrigued by her post and set out to try his hand. He is Italian, it could be argued that espresso was invented by Italians, but that is not important right now!
With my new iphone in hand for quick reference, we set out to create the famed brew.
We didn't have the Cuban coffee, but we had this Brazilian gem. (we figured it was close in geography)
First attempt failed. He was using one of his many stove top makers, and it appeared to be plugged. So he started over.
For good luck, we used the espresso cups Marti sent as a gift.
Here it comes!
This looked promising....
But alas, the espumita failed. :-(
Nice color though!
My husband will not be thwarted. He has been working on it ever since (maybe 10 times since yesterday!)
Better! It must be the cups! One question....what do you do if you are diabetic?
Practice makes perfect, well...almost perfect! Only Kikita can make it perfect!
