Prior to last year, I wasn’t a coffee drinker. I’d been out of work for 3 years and was willing to take any job, just to keep the lights on. After 5 interviews and no job offers, I finally landed a job. There was one big hang up though; The job was at night. I am definitely a day person. As soon as the moon comes out my body goes limp as a noodle and I’m ready to go to bed. It was no surprise when my sister offered me her Breville espresso machine. The one my mom had given her for Christmas.
In walks the world of espresso coffee. I was hooked from the first time that I tasted my grocery store brand of dark roast. Is this what I’d been missing all those years? I’ve been on the job for 8 months now. At first I would brew myself a good ol cup of goodness around 9:30 pm just to wake me up. It got to the point after the first 2 weeks that I had to have my espresso coffee at work because I loved it so much. I started using my office’s espresso machine too.
One night I was running short on time and I made the AWFUL mistake having a cup of coffee that was brewing in the breakroom. Yuck yuck!!! You see up until that point I didn’t know that the actual coffee maker could make a difference in the flavor and overall quality of the coffee. I thought coffee was coffee. Boy was I wrong. That was a tough night. I had to work all night without my good ol goodness. I vowed never to let that happen again. I made sure I was up early enough to have my espresso loaded.
I had to sing my praises for the Breville BES870XL. I felt so bad about my sister giving me hers that I went out and bought her another Breville. Now that I know how good espresso coffee is and how wonderful it taste when brewed with a good espresso machine. I just can’t see denying anyone else this joy.
When Yolanda got her Breville she just smiled at me. I bought her a couple of bags of dark roast also. I used to laugh at her every time she said she couldn’t start her day without her coffee. I just didn’t get it. Now I do.
