How was your christmas Was it lonely Then we have something in common! Christmas 2020 will remain in my memory as a lonely festival. It's not a tragedy. On the one hand, loneliness has its justification; on the other hand, it could be even worse.
Corona scratches your front door
Because the impacts came closer in the last few days. In close family circle there was twice the diagnosis Corona positive. Once with all those unpleasant symptoms that Covid-19 has. And once completely without any symptoms. At this point at the latest, the smallest idea of socializing was finally discarded. The pandemic is scratching our front doors, we shouldn't let them in.
It also gets worse with Christmas and the lack of closeness and sociability. I experienced total isolation, hospital and Christmas a few years ago. There, and one can honestly say that, the little restraint that we now practice is child's play.
Back to a nicer topic. My predilection for espresso, something that has nothing to do with cars and the petrol-soaked atmosphere that usually prevails here, interested the readers. The Post in November the readings were surprisingly good, and in retrospect there was still a lot of e-mail about the history of espresso.
Saab and espresso
My thoughts are not yet ready to write an espresso blog, but as a Christmas present I got a pack of espresso from a reader (DThanks to Jan-Frederik for so much care!). I was very happy about the gift, but also ashamed. “La Cortadora - Coffee for Land and Freedom” reminded me that this Corona issue has not allowed me to think outside the box in recent months.
Although I would count myself among the more conservative part of the population, I usually always have an eye for the little ones and the disadvantaged. My tea comes from Tea rebels from France, and the espresso? I fear that there is some catching up to do. An assessment on my part of how “La Cortadora” drinks will follow soon. The Link to the import company, with further links to the sources of supply for fair trade espresso from farm cooperatives, but already today. Because, Corona or not: We sit in warm houses, have three meals a day and good medical care. Take for granted that you don't have elsewhere.
That brings me back to the Saab issue and a luxury deficit. I like small, thick-walled espresso cups. What I still need for perfection is an authentic mug with Saab lettering or the plane.
With her the espresso would taste a little better.
How do the readers see the matter? Does the espresso group among Saab lovers also recognize a need for action, or is it just a blogger spinning?
I'm looking forward to the answers.
