A lengthy discussion on Boing boing about how to get a perfect espresso. Cory gets it right- a Bialetti stovetop, with Illy coffee (mmmmmmmmm....pesticide).
We just watched "Sideways" on rental a few weeks ago. Is there some sort of link between wine and coffee that makes people obsessive? In my experience, they're separate demographics, but the intensity of emotion is eerily similar.
