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.

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.
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.
