I get my espresso beans from the local coffee shop. They don't have it on the shelf, but just ask your friendly barista, s/he'll hook you up :)
B taught me how to make latte, but I think I am best just watching.
My first latte of the season. My specialty is just brewing coffee from our coffee maker... I think I'll just stick to that until then. . . .
I am NO barista by all means. I never claim to be either. I try and fail miserably. Thank goodness it was for myself.
