If you want to check out a little of Nicki's music, find a date she's playing out, etc.......go check out her new MySPace page...pretty cool......hope you are sipping on a nice iced coffee as you read....WHAT?!?!?!?! You're NOT!?!?!??!? Better order up some BEANS, BABY! Have fun!
Well, I know this is a coffee site but I thought I'd let you all in on a nice "secret" that is about to unfold in Bennington: her name is Nicki Skipper and she is a keyboard player/singer that you should definitely check out! Blues, R&B, Rock...she covers a broad range, and her originals ROCK too! So stop by and say hi Friday, June 29th at Kevins' at Mike's in North Bennington! It is sure to be a fun night! And if you wanna talk coffee, I will be there happy to oblige! ;D
While my espresso machine was in the shop I had the chance to try out a new coffee maker: the Electric Bodum Vacuum Brewer........I was pleasantly surprised at how good a cup of decaf it produced! YUM! AND, it was quick......and easy to clean up! I have to admit that so far this is my FAVORITE brewer for those times I cannot have a cappuccino!
[This is the contest I won the beginner's award last year--this year it is a VIDEO contest---(and BTW, they said they will judge on the VIDEO too, not just the latte art....)]
There are some cool videos there---you can tell by the ones that have the Whole Latte Love flyer printed out under (mine is behind) the drink being poured...there's one of an 8 year old girl!Thank you ALEX for filming me making a latte!!! It was fun!
Oh yeah! A nice Columbian decaf, and as usual, you CANNOT tell it's a decaf! YUM!
I have to admit tho, my current favorite is the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Decaf......I woke up smelling it this morning....and it wasn't brewing yet!
Tried out my brand new Bodum Electric Vacuum Brewer and I LOVE IT! Since my beloved S is in the shop (My Rancilio S27 espresso machine) I have been using the Bodum and have been having a great time AND the coffee is wonderful! It is the FASTEST brewer I've ever seen, too! wow......... great coffee in five minutes~~~ Life is good!
