This morning I decided to forego my usual quick pot of tea and treat myself to coffee, fancy Lavazza in the tin can no less, only to find it clogs up my espresso machine and doesn't allow the water to filter through. After cleaning up the mess I decided to use my (scorched) Bialetti stove top pot , only to find that the last person to use it didn't wash it and it was full of mold. In the end I used a filter jug, drank too much to compensate for a ruined morning and now I'm a bag of nerves.
I'm just finishing a cup of Illy decaf. It's v nice. Been trying out a no-caffeine policy lately to try and break my usual jittery-then-yawny cycle. It's surprisingly easy (though I've not found a nice decaf tea)
