Happy Wednesday Lovelies!
Say hello to the Rocket!
|Rocket Coffee Machine|
Coffee - you know the proper stuff, not that horrible instant coffee, is something I'm really passionate about. Sitting down in the evening with a cappucino & chunk of dark chocolate is one of my favourite times of the day - 5 minutes of indulgence, a little me time.
When our coffee maker went on the blink, Ian decided to research what was out there on the market to find the Mother of all coffee machines & for the record he's found an absolute Beast of a machine called the Rocket!
We'd always previously used Illy ground coffee, but after all his research, it became apparent that freshly ground coffee beans make a huge difference to the overall flavour & freshness of your coffee, so we went all out & bought an electric coffee grinder too.
And so our evening ritual begins...
Grinding the beans takes seconds...
I couldn't believe the difference in flavour once we started grinding the beans & wondered why we hadn't bought a grinder before now (hindsight is always wonderful)!
Heating the milk to the correct temperature & ensuring it doesn't boil is essential to getting the perfect froth!
Equally important is the pressure that the machine pushes through the coffee...
Maybe I should have been an Italian!!
On a side note, proper recipe posts have been a little sparse as my oven is broken & I'm waiting for a new part - should be fixed at the end of July fingers crossed!
Wishing you a yummy Wednesday
