I would imagine that my coffee making supplies should only occupy one small piece of counter top and a can's worth of space in the cupboard. Yeah right.
At present there are two coffee machines on the counter. The first is a Tassimo that makes individual cups. Each morning I make myself a cappuccino. That's my treat or possibly bribe to get myself moving. I tend to wait till I have to time to sit quietly and sip at leisure. I dug the espresso machine out for my niece to use, she worked in a coffee bar for years, but she doesn't really drink much of the brew, so it sits mostly unused. On the weekends I usually make up a full pot and pour out 5 cappuccinos as a treat for the family.
At times I feel the urge to be a purist and I make espresso using the Italian method.
Mukka Express. It brews the expresso and froths the milk all in one step. Here's a video of how it works (it's in Italian with english subtitles):
Along with all these basic items, there are all the coffee extras. The actual coffee including: caf coffee, decaf coffee, caf espresso, decaf espresso, a variety of flavoured coffees and then there are the many coffee pods that are used in the Tassimo. Don't forget to add in the measuring scoops, coffee grinder, milk frother, kettle, etc.
