Well it took me about 90 minutes to prepare, but this cup of coffee sure tasted good!
The fire went out over night so I had to start it up from scratch and get some good heat out of it before the water started to boil.
I measured in 2 nice tablespoons full of Sainsbury’s premium Fair Trade coffee from South America, and hey presto – a delicious cup of coffee in front of a wood burning stove. Ah, the simple things in life!
Well, I have been in one of my home lands these past couple of weeks spending some time with the family and focusing on getting my web communications business set up.
I am staying in a gorgeous little converted attic of an old house out in the Co. Antrim countryside outside a town called Cullybackey (the corner of the river bend). A good friend of mine is in the process of building and opening up a retreat center here. It is a beautiful house with surrounding outhouses which, for the most part, have now been converted into cottages and event spaces. Don’t let me start on the garden and the lake! oh and wood burning stove ovens!!! I am obsessed with those now, and with fire generally. My mission is to test out some Zomppa recipes over this stove in the next few weeks. Patty, that tomato soup is on the cards for this week!
One of my work projects is to set up a website for this retreat center, but in the meantime, you can check out some pictures below and at the Facebook Fan Page: The Dreen
