I thought that today I would have my blog friends over for a virtual cup of coffee.
It's something I started way back when I would ask Nikki for blog help and advice. She was so generous with helping me that I owed her quite a few coffee's plus all the ones I want to just sit and have with her.
After that it was just funny to owe blog friends a coffee in general after comments go back and forth. And really who doesn't want to sit with a creative blog friend and chat about craft over coffee hey??!! Exactly.
This is Tiffany.
I rescued her from the treasure shop for $5 a while back and I do think it is time I made you a coffee too. Fair Trade coffee only in this house hope you don't mind.
Check out my post on my favourite coffee shop which started me on my fair trade journey.
This was Tiffany's first cup of coffee and I think we both understood each other. We were grateful that we had found each other and we were determined to make the best cup of coffee I had had in a while... no matter how long it took.
Frothing was something Tiffany has done before but I have never done it. She was so patient and understanding of my fear. She really wanted to make my first cup a special one. We made a bit of a mess together and we laughed.
This was the end result.
It looks very cafe quality. The froth held up perfectly under the chocolate dust. We gave ourselves 8 of 10 for presentation. Lets face it you can always improve on your first try together.
We went through 4 mugs, 2 cups of milk, 2 table spoons of chocolate dust (I like chocolate dust) 3 spoons and 1 cup of water. In total the first cup of coffee took 20mins to make. I told Tiffany that I have waited longer than that for a coffee sometimes... not from my local cafe though.
The final test.
I can not believe how good our coffee tasted. It not only looked cafe quality but it tasted completely cafe quality. My heart was singing and Tiffany was extremely chuffed. I think she was worried I was going to send her back to the treasure shop if she didn't perform well.
So if you would like a creative chat over a wonderful virtual MooBear Cafe Coffee I would be happy for the company. We have our coffee making down to about 6mins now too... hehe.
