  1. Can anyone help me? Can I use espresso coffee to make a regular 12 cup pot of coffee and if so, what is the water to coffee ratio?

  2. These look DELICIOUS! Wow…I cannot wait to try them, as soon as I can afford an espresso machine!

    I spent a few months in Rome and there is nothing like Italian coffee drinks, which are not as fancy, but incomparable in taste. They make a cappuccino freddo that dominates over an iced coffee. Or a Morracchino has cocoa flavoring. I recommend some of those recipes!
