I was so excited that I took a picture of me drinking a cappuccino. Sad.
It's not that I don't drink coffee in Malawi, I still indulge daily but... I just don't have a coffee maker or an espresso machine. So how do I pull that off? I mix boiling water and coffee in one cup and pour it through a strainer into another cup. Or ... I drink instant coffee. Oh yeah, I am definitely roughing it.
So while visiting my friend Cara and her family in South Africa over Christmas break, I spent leisurely mornings and evenings sipping homemade cappuccino. It was refreshing. I decided that I definitely needed to schlep one of the gizmos back with me to Malawi.
Drum roll please.
Introducing The Espresso Machine/Coffee Maker
Picture me smiling on the other side of the camera.
Monday was a public holiday, which meant no school. In order to properly break in the espresso machine (coffee maker and burr grinder) I invited the ABC staff over for Cappuccino Monday. Needless to say it was a big hit with about 20+ people.
