There is a new superauto espresso machine (specifically, a VKI Eccellenza Express) on the second floor of the Marksbury building. Life is suddenly excellent, although my continued health may be in danger.
My only compliant from my first use is that the macchiato button appears to make a latte macchiato (and a starbucks-like sweetened monstrosity of one at that), rather than a real macchiato. The manual doesn’t appear to be online (yet?), but I expect the next several weeks will be punctuated with attempts to coax something resembling a brauner out of it.
extol it, worship it, this despotic engine, show it every reverence, it is a thing proud of its glory, insatiate, a tyrant;— Noireuil, From Juliette Marquis de Sade, translation by Austryn Wainhouse
