Today: how to make a frothy, frothy mocha! Yum!

FIRST and foremost, you gotta get a new espresso maker. Not the cheesy little plastic one you used in grad school - to make good espresso, the maker has gotta weight at least as much as the equivalent volume of lead bullion. Have your husband's relatives buy you one. If all the instructions are in Italian, then you know you've hit paydirt.

coffee goodness )

If one were to explain, one would be hard pressed to explain just how awesome tiki's life has been this past day. First, we started in Commieland, ie, the Kremlin, and it just got better.

We didn't actually get intoLenin's final resting place yet. As with so many things in Russia, first you must stand in a line. Then the line gets you to another line, where you go through a metal detector. Then sundry lines to check your camera, and then you get to line up to see our comrade.

Commies! )

Using dodgy hostel intarnets right now. Afraid boys playing Scorpions videos I booted off will soon return to murder me.

After a hearty 2 hours sleep, left ExCel con center hotel promptly at 3:45 am London time. It was raining, and one of our party had gotten stuck in an elevator on the way over from his hotel. Two other members were at large, looking for him. They finally straggled in, dripping from the rain, that turns out to have soaked their clothes an attractive suitcase color.

Into taxis. The drivers heard we were going via Ryan air, and began to tell taxi guy horror stories. We laughed nervously, until we arrived Stanstead airport to see taxi guy was 100% correct in predicting a mass exodus of truly biblical proportions.

The Ryan Air kiosks were quite reasonable. Except for checking in to the flights for Riga. Which, we were. We waited half an hour, then towards an hour. Mr. Tiki tried using logic on some of the personnel, to no effect. Finally, a mere two minutes before checkin was scheduled to be closed, we got to the desk.

Then, through security, where tiki dinged the metal detector, and a few more of our party were pulled aside for Shoe Inspection. And then to the hideously crowded train, and a brisk run to the gate, 5 minutes before our plane was scheduled to depart. We fell behind, lugging the backpack with the laptop, and as we lumbered down the gangway, suddenly saw our party pop back in to view, running up the same stairs, waving and shouting, THAT WAY! We looked, down the bit that said "EMERGENCY EXIT?" Um. And, yes, that's how we got to our plane.

Uneventful flight for the most part, especially after the leadup. We woke up to a sudden unholy shaking, and began to flash our lifetime, only to be reassured by Mr. Tiki that it was simply a typical Ryan Air one-wheel landing. Never again.

We're in Riga. Cool architecture dude. Food 8,000% better than London--we had chicken crepes & a mocha for lunch at a glorious chain called DOUBLE COFFEE. (Latvia, we lurves you.) After touring some churches, the party ran out of steam and has crashed upstairs. We're waiting for enough people to revive to go get some dinner.

So, we're gossiping with our barista this morning (since, as you know, Baristas Know All), and we're asking what's going to become of Ye Olde Tower Records building, seeing as it's finally being gutted. "Urban Outfitters," was the answer, which is good news, although, probably mixed news for the tiki bank account, as we have this terrible tendency to pick up too many rubber devil duckies and the like.

anyways... )

Ask us why

Ask us why we're drinking our morning coffee out of a 1981 Boy Scout Jamboree mug.

Go ahead.

Ask us.

All Hail the Mighty Coffee Bean!
Step Two: Storage
All coffee lovers know that coffee grounds turn into the very dandruff of the Dark Lord himself if you leave them out for more than 145 seconds. Clearly I'll need a way to store the grounds while I'm having each bean individually ministered to. The CafeStore 4000x creates a vacuum environment for the storage of the ground beans. Not just a vacuum in the usual sense of having very little air, but an ideal vacuum with no air, no black-body radiation, no zero-point energy, nothing but beans. According to the laws of physics, this is impossible, and as such may cause the universe to cease to exist, but isn't that worth it for the perfect cup?

Risk the fate of the unverse? For a cup of coffee? There is no question. Yes.

Stitchie "Starbucks" mugs.

It's like somebody in Japan is readin' our mind!!!!!!!!

Did we ever talk here about getting a mocha in Japan? Anyways, we were waiting for a train, and went to an espresso stand, where she brewed up a really yummy-looking mocha, and then efficiently inserted the cup into a paper bag, rolled up the bag, and stapled the top.

How was everybody's weekend? Mr. Tiki is gone again, but will return soon, bearing more Stitch cereal boxes for our collection.

Well, it sure feels like Monday. It really takes a bit of extra effort, getting started after a long weekend.

How about some coffee??

Mmmmm, caffeine )
