Bialetti & Bagels

First for breakfast, I tried oatmeal with raisins and instant coffee. The oatmeal stuck in my throat and the coffee tasted terrible. My new breakfast is espresso with a bagel and cream cheese. I learned in Italy last year that at home many Italians use a simple Bialetti espresso maker. It works great. Because the water is forced through the coffee grounds, they're quite dry and easy to clean up after breakfast. Plus I get a great shot of real coffee. I typically prepare everything the night before. Then I heat the coffee in the morning while I prepare for the day. I eat breakfast while reading my Eugene Peterson devotional and I'm ready to ride. I like this routine.
