Shopping finds in Dortmund.

Well, over a week ago I told you to stay tuned for our shopping finds in Dortmund, but after taking an unexpected trip back home I didn't get around to doing a post on this. Since I am sitting here trying to warm up after my walk to the grocery store in the rain, I figured it would be great time to share with you.

My new....

(Drum roll please.)


This lovely little contraption makes espresso on the stove top! After doing some online research, I was set to purchase one off Amazon. So, when I walked into a cute little shop in Dortmund to see an entire display of these things I was beyond excited.

After we found my moka pot, we ventured into Starbucks to see if they had any syrup for sale. I found a little bottle, and took it check out when the barista starting chattering away in German. Sheepishly I asked him if he spoke English. He then proceeded to tell me that he could sell me one of their stock bottles which was a much better value! And, he even threw in a pump with it.

And here is the moka pot in action:

Now I am all set to make my own lattes. Obviously, I'm a big fan of the little things in life.

Hey girl, this sounds yummy! You can buy them in IKEA too - surprise :). Although right now I wouldn't trade my senseo for ANYTHING! Wish we could have a coffee in person one of these days...hopefully in Jan or Feb. Have a great day!

Ikea? Really? And here I thought I was on to something "new." I would love a senseo or a tassimo, but I don't think our baggage weight limit will allow such luxuries. Oh the joys of moving every ten months!
