Death to lattes. The Macchiato is my friend.

Death to lattes. The Macchiato is my friend.

The Macchiato is my friend.

After spending the morning at Powell’s we spent the afternoon reading in a coffee shop. I’m not a big fan of sweet drinks, alcoholic or otherwise, and was not in the mood for your standard drip coffee. So I tried a macchiato, which is a shot (or two) of espresso with foam. Have you ever wanted to bathe in a cup of coffee? I wanted to lather it all over my body for the richness and foaminess it possessed – all without the yucky sweetness of flavoring or the stomach-churning dysfunction of milk.

I will never drink another latte again.

  1. ooh -I love macchiatos! And I love Portland. And I love being alone with hubby without the kids… ok, so I’m jealous. 🙂
    Our fave place when we were in portland was the gelato place right across from Powell’s : Mio Gelato
    Awesome espresso, fabulous gelato, and free wi-fi. Whoo hoo!
    (The best dessert ever in my opinion is a scoop of gelato (chocolate, vanilla, or capuccino) with an espresso shot poured over, affogato style. Swoon)
    Sigh. Ok, now I’m really jealous.
    Cheers! 🙂

  2. I LOVE espresso in it’s true form…and bathing in it…I know exactly what you mean.

    Sometimes I like a little sweet and will have an Americano with 4 pumps of peppermint in it. No cream or sugar, just the peppermint.

    BTW – You have one of my all time favorite blogs.

    Found you through my friend Anna Grace! (Love Drunk)
