...and she's right. No one in their right mind feeds espresso to a five year old.
The best sign I ever saw in a coffee shop was, "Children left unattended will be given a doppio and a puppy."
Either that, or, "a $2.00 surcharge will be added to customers ordering while speaking on a cellphone", but that one wasn't relevant...

Barry started his daughter on espresso somewhere around two if I remember correctly.

He is just a championship Barista in training. He can roast pretty good and work the espresso machine although steaming is a bit too dangerous for him. The 200F portafilter is too hot for his hands, but if I tamp and load, he can pull the shot. :D

Cheers! In just a few years, you can get him up with a call of, "If you don't get up, you won't be able to catch the bus and still get me my doppio!" ; >

I think that the discussion that exposed me to the aforementioned sign quote originated around Barry's lil Maddie (is it Maddie?) and her fondness for espresso...

Hi Folks,
If I really added up all the money in machines and beans, I should break even (and have no worries) about the time my kids are selling off the stuff at an estate sale.:lol:

For me the priceless benefit of coffee is folks like yourselves who have been and are teaching me new thought patterns and skills.
I have some sensitivities to many common foods and liquids. So the money I spend is less of a %chunk than if I still did many of the things I can no longer enjoy.

I shoot AM ristrettos from an alternative of different machines and then may use an electric moka pot to make my daily travel lattes. Weekend shots are when I feel like it. ( small kettles / boilers are nice for a quickie) I have a pump machine and grinder in the studio at my part time job. My guests take "pot Luck" and really it is.:) Many now complain about restaurant coffee.
Thanks for the ideas and skills
Sincerely
Richard / espressme
