Card Creme you ask??? If you are not a coffee lover the name could sound a little funny. Creme is the wonderfully rich layer of froth that sits on top of an espresso shot. In the photo it is that lovely caramel colored ring around the edge. This Christmas my hubby bought me a Rancillio coffee machine and I must say it is a little piece of heaven! Sorry to you tea drinkers out there. I'm sure if you came to my place I could convert you to the dark rich coffee bean side! Now to sit and enjoy the latte I made. Mmmmmmmm!
