Caffeine in the Mornings

Espresso in the house!
I don't go far without my thermos mug of coffee and I carry bags of chocolate covered espresso beans like most people carry gum, but I'm not much of a coffee shop fan.  I was forced into experimenting a bit more with coffee this fall, because I couldn't figure out how to order a regular black cup of coffee in French or Spanish.  I liked it.  Now we have an in-house espresso machine, which is the most used toy from under the tree this season.

The cup and saucer (and machine) are from Home on Water St. and we're currently enjoying Rocket's Holiday Blend espresso. The fruit bowl and plate are by Alexis Templeton and the table cloth is a Basque tapestry we bought in San Sebastian.  (Apologies to everyone who came here expecting to see someone gutting a seal. I'm on vacation.)
