The bakery up the street Panaderia Aurora, must have earned about a thousand dollars from our family over the past few decades. We send someone on a run every morning, sometimes twice a day. There's nothing particularly extraordinary about the pan, it's just the pan you eat that you have to have with the coffee and after dinner.
I love coffee and I'm a coffee snob. I gotta tell you though, the coffee at Nana's just tastes like love and joy in instant crystals. I never quite understood the ritual before and now that I'm older and wiser, its really important and special to be included in it. This time I was able to contribute and made breakfast for my family one morning and can now be that grand child that sends money to help the nana. I'll happily drink to that.
I'd like to bring this tradition home. To have some cafe y pan at the ready for family and visitors, never letting that kettle run dry.
