Good quality espresso, freshly ground. I like Wholefoods because I can purchase a small amount and then put the remainder in the freezer.
Percolated to perfection in a single serve espresso maker which can be found for under $15 at Marshalls or Homegoods. Although, I would caution, if you get the small 1 cup maker, it may not fit on your gas burner. Might want to opt for the 3 cup.
Accompanied by a Lotus cookie and served in Grandma Popyk’s china.
