Coffee Entertainment Tip #04

It does not matter which kind of appliance you are using to make your favorite kind of coffee, it can be a drip, a Moka pot, an espresso machine, but the rule is always the same: never pack your coffee.

Coffee Entertaining Tip #01

In summer we never toss in the sink whatever coffee is left in our moka pot, rather we keep on filling ice cube trays with it and we make “espresso iced cubes”! Add two or three cubes to a half glass of cold whole milk in a hot summer morning to get going.

You guys all know I’m a big fan of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, Delaware, right? Well, they really outdid themselves with their most recent Ancient Ales beer. Dogfish’s Sam Calagione recruited biomolecular archeologist Dr. Patrick McGovern to take a pilgrimage to Tuscany and the 8th century B.C. Etruscan tombs. With the help of Birreria Brother Brewers Leo DeVencenzo of Birra del Borgo and Teo Musso of Baladin, a chemical and botanical analysis was done on ancient drinking vessels and their contents. What happened next was pretty cool. Continue Reading…
