Espresso for The Glade

I told you here that we were considering getting an espresso machine for The Glade. Finally, I ordered one.

The Rancilio Silvia was on display at La Mill.

After reading all the reviews I decided on the Rancilio Silvia.  Coffee Geek recommends buying it from 1st in Coffee in New Jersey so I placed an order online.

Both Charlie and son have been bona fide baristas and so are very familiar with all kinds of industrial espresso rigs. They know all about grind, tamping, steaming, etc.

Next on the list is for the two of them to learn a little cappuccino art like my Roman barista.  He put a heart in my coffee.

A cappuccino at Caffe Peru on via Giulia in Rome.

I love that. What’s your drink of choice?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
