Roasted espresso beans
Fresh from the plastic red bag
Fell into the metal grinder
The ice cold whole milk,
Confined in the milk jug,
Is placed on the counter.
While the espresso grinds,
The whole milk is poured into the pitcher.
Pressed up against the steaming wand,
Heat emits from the outside of the pitcher,
As white foam rose to the top.
Piping hot water is poured into the
Batch of crushed espresso beans.
As they seeped, the hot water turned
A mysterious brown color
With hints of maroon from the sunlight.
The coffee was poured into
A matte black mug
And the hot milk was poured
Into the shape of a heart.
