Life as a new mom has definitely made me more thankful for my morning cup of coffee. While I’ve never been one to drink coffee for it’s caffeine ‘to get me through the day’, every bit helps when your little one keeps you up during the night hours!
For years I’ve worked as a barista with specialty coffee. And while I love a good espresso, at home we stick to the more gentle filter brewing. With filter coffee it’s a lot easier to get a good extraction (meaning yummy coffee) with simple tools. Contrary to an espresso, filter coffee becomes better when it’s cooled down a little and brings out so much of the character of the beans you use. We love sharing a cup together on our mornings off, especially when there’s cinnamon rolls involved!
