Morning Coffee Ritual
When I wake up in the morning I have a one track mind. Coffee.
Our routine is has pretty much been perfected with the Presso and in less then 10 minutes
I have made two flat whites and sitting in front of my computer checking emails--the second track on my mind in the morning.
Here is my procedure.
Step 1: fill kettle quarter full (no point boiling too much water)
Step 2: turn on kettle.
Step 3: fill two mugs half full of milk (in our case farm fresh milk from our own cows)
Step 4: put mugs in microwave (1 minute per mug works for us) so 2 minutes for 2
Step 5: rinse presso and portafilter with hot water: this cleans it from the last use and warms it up for its pending morning press
Step 6: grind Green Cauldron coffee and tamp
Step 7: insert portafilter into the presso
Step 8: take mug and milk out of microwave and froth
Step 9: put mug under presso and press arms down (I do it twice-nice and slow on the first press and then one more to finish off with some crema)
Step 10: repeat step 9 for second flat white
