I bought an espresso maker and tried makning a latte at home. It wasn't brewing so I turned it off, let it cool for 20mins or so then tried releasing the pressure by loosening the cap. It still had a lot of pressure and the cap blew off spewing crazy hot water everywhere. I have a burn on my lip that looks like a cold sore. Then while making bfast, I burnt my finger on the bacon grease. Then in the afternoon while throwing some tree branches in a dumpster I scratched the shit out of the back of my leg on a log that was behind me. Then after we got home in kept tripping on shit and dropping stuff. What a pain in the ass!

Thanx ladies. I'm returning the espresso maker and from now on am just going to brew regular coffee at home and go to starbucks for a latte. Its safer. Lol the burn never really hurt. Its pretty minor. Yesterday was a much better day.

Ouch!  I'm so sorry!  Be gentle on yourself though, everyone has accidents.

We got an espresso maker for a wedding gift that I used twice with pretty much the same results.... There are some really tasty creamers now... so you don't even need to go to Starbucks for a latte.   My new fav is International Delight Chocolate Carmel... I mix it with non-fat half and half to keep the calories down a little and it takes just like a mocha.

At home I just put a little milk in my coffee. So its kinda like a latte. I don't go do starbucks very often (less than once a month) but I do quite enjoy it. International delights also makes iced coffee ready made too.
