”Fine espresso paints the tongue”

”Fine espresso paints the tongue”

A Wonderful quote isn’t it…..and especially piquant when you realise it is from the fabled Dr Ernesto Illy, who according to the New York Times interview of 2001 ‘started his day, every day, with a big cup of tea’

Well, I have to admit, that when you consider it takes 50 precious green beans to make a single espresso shot, which is in itself a rich and varied combination of 800 components and then you factor in cost – Illy reckon that their coffee is ‘twice as expensive as the run-of-the-mill stuff’ then you don’t want to waste this god given gift do you!?

So, if Illy wants Tea, Tetley’s, PG Tips, or otherwise for breakfast, then tea he should have, god rest his deigned soul and we thank him again for his superb legacy in the continuing battle to achieve perfetto espresso……

From the sublime to the ridiculous…have you ever considered enjoying your morning ESE pod and perfetto espresso with scrambled eggs made using the steam wand of your espresso machine… !?

Nope me neither  -BUT – True! You too, can have apparently wonderful scrambled eggs in less than 50 seconds from your steam wand…clean carefully after use so as not to poison yourself!
