‘Would you like a drink that vaguely resembles a cappuccino, vaguely resembles a latte, or vaguely resembles an americano?’ is an offer I tempted my friends with the other day. This is roughly where I’m at with my commercial coffee machine which will, eventually, go in the back of the traveller van. Here is the lovely retro-looking, if rather heavy and temperamental, Brasilia Portofino…This morning’s vaguely cappuccino-like beverage was not bad, partly thanks to the Cotswold Coffee Company blend that I’m trying out. I moan a little about working weekends sometimes, but since I don’t start until midday I actually have the perfect opportunity to spend the more & more often sunny mornings making coffee, getting on with emails and little tasks, and making myself interesting brunches.My Sunday brunch today isn’t hugely complicated, but enormously satisfying (and will power me through the afternoon at work hopefully!). Scrambled eggs with goat’s cheese, salad with olive oil & balsamic and some ham & black pepper. Making interesting brunches on a regular basis is going to be my new cooking goal, since I work 12-5 and need something substantial to keep me going, and Sophie Dahl‘s book is full of interesting & simple breakfasts, so a good place to start. All you need is some lazy Sunday morning music, and you’re sorted.
