Espresso Express

When I was in Italy a couple of years ago I fell in love with the Espresso drink. When I returned home I had to buy Espresso somewhere, anywhere if I had a taste for it.

After purchasing many cups of Espresso I had the idea that I could make it at home. Mind you I can’t make a decent cup of coffee. My dog wouldn’t drink the coffee I made.Pretty bad, huh.

I started on a journey to gather utensils I would need to become an Espresso Barista. Google and Amazon became my go to information centers. I also checked out a few more sites but at the end of the day I didn’t know any more than before I started looking.

I finally made a decision and purchased an Espresso machine. After it arrived I stood back and peered at it like it was a strange animal in the zoo.


Getting past that I remembered I had a coffee grinder that I previously used to grind other things-not coffee. I finally located it.


Next was Espresso Beans. They were easy to buy. So no sweat there.

After thinking I knew what I was doing I realized the grinder wasn’t working that well but didn’t know what exactly was wrong. My next adventure was…you guessed it-to find a new grinder.

Just like the Espresso machine there were so many pros and cons that I quit looking several times. Then one day I came across a grinder that I could use with my Ninja Blender.  I bit the bullet and purchased the grinder.



The grinder works great and the Espresso beans are ground like I’ve never seen before. The  Espresso taste different…stronger….better.

Now I can say mission accomplished.
