after a self-imposed 20 year absence from cycling, the sport i love, i am back and dedicated to holding my own in the superfast 40+ catagory. this blog will tell the journey, the highs and the lows, the team [team becher+] and it's cast of characters, our sponsors, supporters, and other local riders that make it happen...

ESPRESSO WEDNESDAY


[early afternoon shot]
machine: built in miele automatic
beans: espresso paradiso [papua new guinea]


it is almost fika time here in soCal, so i thought i would post the espresso image of the day from my very good friend grzegorz in a'dam. note the good light colored medium thick creama on top, the tell tell signs of an automatic machine are the larger froth bubbles at the edges. although i prefer a manuel or semi-auto machine, i value a good automatic machine from time to time and miele has a great one [and a good nespresso machine]. greg's miele treated me well on my last trip to a'dam.


PRO: so it looks like the ASO and UCI are in for a train wreak this weekend with the un-professional actions surrounding paris / nice. how do i explain this to my U23 riders? see it through their eyes, what a mess. it is so frustrating, i am glad all i have to do is ride my bike and earn my living doing design.

    the espresso cup you see i purchased at the airport in barcelona few years back, it has silkscreened tile pattern somewhat resembling gaudi's stuff (what i'm saying is that the red stuff at the edge of the cup is print not a lipstick:)

    cheers
