espresso: a strong coffee brewed by forcing steam under pressure through darkly roasted, powdered coffee beans.
crema: the tan colored foam that forms on the top of espresso–the simple, yet joyful evidence of coffee done well.
Crema is a place for writing about the simple yet joyful evidence of life done well. Not perfect mind you – not the writing nor the life, but observations of lessons learned, beauty noted, insight grasped. It is a space for stories about my favorite things, current events, and the activity of God.
Crema – the foam – is a part of the espresso beverage. It is the visual lure of espresso, the aroma, the mouthfeel, the flavor, the aftertaste of espresso.
Crema – the writing – is a part of life. It is in telling the story I share awareness of the sensation of Life, the flavor, color, commontion, the sentiment.
I most often enjoy crema, the beverage, in converstation with others. I am hoping that will happen here in Crema, the blog, as well.
