I can’t wait to test out my new toys. I acquired a pair of the Bodum Pavina demitasses from Alistair yesterday. They will be used both at home and at the shop when I’m toying around, just because they are so sexy. I cannot wait to pull a shot into them, though Alistair has said that they tend to keep the espresso way too hot.

Another toy I would love to have is one of those beautiful 12 oz Alessi frothing pitchers. Chris, from Espro, let me try his out, and once I got a feel for the thicker walls I was pouring more defined art. This was my second attempt with the pitcher.

Now I’ve got to check out these barista training DVDs… after I read more about electric flux and Gaussian surfaces…

49th Parallel El Salvador La Montaña
Excellent coffee for everyday drinking. Well expressed acidity and classic El Salvador profile.

Bulleit Bourbon
By far the best bourbon available in BC for the price. $35 for a bottle gets you the highest rye content bourbon on the market. Lots of spice and typical bourbon corn sweetness. Excellent on its own, but also makes a mean Old Fashioned. Better than Knob Creek in my books and pretty close to Woodford Reserve.
