Our Daily Joe

I was brewing up my morning coffee - Jamaican Blue Mountain, in a cafetiere - and heating up a mug of milk, and I started to think. About all the different ways our friends make coffee and the long discussions about it. Blue Mountain or Lavazza Super Oro? Nespresso or Orchestro? Steam pressure or boiling water? Grind your beans by hand, in a special grinder or leave it to the machine? Milk or cream? There are almost religious disagreements about the best way to make coffee and I’ve seen some bitter arguments tear communities apart. I’ve seen it before I thought.
It’s crema versus crema.
