LA CREMA DELLA CREMA

On my way home from a shoot last night I stopped to look at the Christmas lights above me in Regent Street but was much more impressed by the display of espresso cups and saucers in the Illy coffee shop, three blocks North of Oxford Circus.  Illy espresso medium roast is the coffee I have for breakfast now, and I need a big cupful to start my day.  But there's nothing quite like the boost from a single espresso around mid-morning, which is exactly when I'll be back in that area on Thursday, this time after a very early shoot, so you know exactly where I'll be and why.
