I told Alex not to half ass my cappuccino foam. He told me that after this, I would never want anyone else to make my cappuccino. He’s right. It’s effing phenomenal.
Then he told me about this guy he used to work with who had been with Starbucks for 18 years, and would make designs with the milk and syrups and stuff on top of everyone’s drinks. Alex tried to make a heart with the foam, but it was more of a blob shape than a heart. That’s okay though. I appreciated the gesture, and I’m more concerned with taste anyway.
And the taste is goooooood.
There’s something very simplistic and awesome about a cappuccino. I wish I could just sit and sip a cappuccino every day. Though I wish this one was in a mug. They taste better in a really big mug. I don’t really know what it is about the mug that makes it taste better, it just does. Maybe the proportions are more conducive to proper foam distribution or something. I’m sure there’s a scientific explanation, like the design for the Sam Adams pilsner glass. Or it may just be that I always get them in a mug when I’m in a restaurant and relaxing…
I should create a scientific experiment for this. My findings will blow the coffee world away. I’ll get published in all of the big scientific coffee journals and became famous. Then I’ll get invited to be a guest on the Daily Show. Jon Stewart will be fascinated by me, and he’ll give me a weekly segment like Lewis Black. Except instead of “Back in Black” it will be “Java with Jenny.”
Hey, a girl can dream.
