Didja miss me? I missed me!

Well, the Press Pot is back from L.A., where I spent a blissful week vacationing not only from New York, but also from coffee.

It's so much easier to come home excited and jazzed to learn and teach about espresso when you can spend some time not worrying about the pressures of performing well behind the counter. Of course, it also helps that the trip was 100% marvelous all around. But I'll tell you, that first cup when I got home was an absolute delight. Hoo-wee.

To celebrate my return to the job I love so strangely and completely, today I poured my first tulip!


Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! Welcome back to the grind, so to speak.
