Fresh Steyn: Mark Steyn on Louder With Crowder

It's a really good one. 

I was laughing my head off about the coffee talk. I am not a snob about people but I am a bit of a coffee snob, and I love (am in love?!?!) with my espresso maker and my stash of Lavazzo. I can't do the frothy milk art but I make a mean Café Au Lait.

(There is a long story behind me owning a coffee maker, but I'll try to make it short. I was nagging The Husband for years about getting an espresso maker, but he said, no we don't need one, and suggested that it would likely go the way of the pasta maker that was on our wedding registry, which we never opened and sold, in the original box to someone somewhere in Israel. Then for a while I was nagging him about WE SHOULD GET A BREADMAKER and he said 'we already have one', and I said what?!?! And he said, yah, it's called the bakery down the street, I pay $2 (then) and get a loaf of bread-that's our breadmaker.  But I really, really, really, really, really wanted the espresso maker because I love good coffee. So, finally we researched it and bought one (it's all about the number of bars of pressure) and guess what we use it every day. EVERY day. In fact, this is our machine number 2 (Cuisinart), and I still love it every day.)


I also have not had very good coffee in America. Actually, I should say that I have only had craptacular coffee in America. What's the deal with that?

(Best coffee: Italy, Israel, France, Poland.)

As Mark Steyn says in this interview (I'm paraphrasing slightly), how the heck to you get a coffee flavoured coffee with coffee in it, in America?!?!?


The other thing that made me laugh out loud was the "Zebra Mussel Machiatto".

Listen to the whole thing.
