My first at-home latte.

May 26th, 2010 No Comments

My first illy latte!

Ok, well, my first attempt was unsuccessful, but on my second try I made a delicious latte from an illy pod and milk I steamed (not microwaved!) myself.  And you know what, it tasted really good!!

Unfortunately I couldn’t make the milk foam, but that will come in time.

Bottom line: leaps and bounds better than Starbucks, cheaper in the long run, and I don’t have to put on pants and shoes to get it.

More on my machine here.  I bought it at Sur La Table on sale.  As a comparison I also tried out the Nespresso pod coffee, but I like the taste of illy better.

But what should I name her?

I’m one of those crazy people who names their fun toys/inanimate objects that seem to have a personality.

When it comes to this sassy red sista, our first date was a little rocky, but I think our chemistry will grow into a deep love and appreciation over time. A few mornings and we’ll get into a zone, you know.  So!  She’ll need a name.

Any ideas?
