Goodbye $4 latte, hello homemade.

I remember a time when Prince Charming said to me, "There will never be a day when you won't have to worry about spending $4 on a latte." I suppose he was right.

Well, after "Honey, you have to read the instructions and it's not going to be as simple as you think" and "we need to clean the parts first", I am happily sipping my delicious homemade vanilla latte.  

And if you think that those statements above were made by me, you have another thing coming.
It tastes exactly like what I shell out $4 for at those fancy coffee shops. Welcome to my life, free caffeine fix. 

Here are some pictures of our first experiences with our new Breville Cafe Roma espresso machine, whom I now will call Essa.

Ryker, meet Essa - the key to more walks

Welcome home, we've been waiting for you

First vanilla latte - perfection (OK, so no pretty art on top but give me a break, I'm a med student, not a barista)
