I’m currently struggling with my new bottomless filter grouphead, without a huge lot of success.
Must preface that (a bit late, eh ?) by saying that I have been able to make a WONDERFUL flat white with it, but at the cost of an enormous amount of coffee ground by my Lelit. I’m sitting here with a whole mugful of a wondrous brew; but I would rather have a smaller amount that I can refill more often.
In other words, the bottomless filter grouphead arrived with 2-cup filter inside, and I can’t get the bloody thing OUT ! I want to replace the 2-cup with the single cup filter I always use, but for reasons I don’t comprehend, I just can’t ease the big one out. BUGGER.
(Addendum: ’tis fixed ! I called the supplier and he irritatedly told me how.)
Anyway … all this activity related to Italian things (espresso machine and grinder, as well as new parts) has brought to mind the thought of laying some more Italian pop on you. Whaddya reckon ?
They themselves call it la musica leggera – light music; and that’s a nice, general kind of term, so we’ll stick with it. (Questions will be asked later: pay attention !)
Today we are listening to a different kind of pop track: it’s from one of Stringer’s and my two favourite female vocalists, the very beautiful and equally talented Giorgia:
“Arriva il temporale”, Giorgia, rel. BMG Ricordi SpA 1997.
This is a song that could well be described as a feminist cry. Don’t let that put you off for a moment, though: unless you speak Italian, you won’t have a clue; but you will, I trust !, derive as much enjoyment from this song as from the last one.
