… a skinny flat white
Well according to my hubby that is. My response would be a chilled Sauvignon Blanc 🙂
Not much happening on the build this week so a light hearted post instead:
He has always been a coffee hound and has taken to Aussie coffee as a duck to water. For friends and family abroad Aussies love their coffee and take it very seriously. He frequents the same cafe in the City such that the baristas know his name and start making his coffee as he enters the premises. I was informed a while back that he didn’t want but needed his own fancy coffee maker in the new house, Nescafe just doesn’t cut it any more. He has been busy researching which would be the right machine for him in his spare time.

Well back to the present and Mr Caffeine got an award at work and points mean prizes so this is what he chose:
Well he was a very happy camper eagerly awaiting his delivery. Off I went to the UK and thought it odd he hadn’t extolled its virtues to me via FaceTime. Delivery took forever but eventually it arrived and he eagerly unwrapped it and there in all its glory was
A Sunbeam bread maker! Surprise!!
I’m sorry but I laughed .. and laughed .. and laughed 🙂
It finally arrived this week and after reading the instructions and watching tutorials online he has started main lining the caffeine.
[note to my sister: yes he takes it that seriously that he read the manual!!]
Well I’m a green tea with jasmine kind of girl normally but he has won me over to the dark side. He seems to have cracked the coffee side of it pretty quickly but now needs to work on the artistic pouring and pretty patterns.

Now we are searching for the perfect coffee cup to pour it into as our rather eclectic mug collection just doesn’t cut it any more. Personally my Buffy the Vampire easter egg mug has many happy memories for me :).
Hubby would like to add after reading this over my shoulder that more importantly we are searching for the right coffee bean rather than the right cup.
