Make Espresso as Good as on Your Coffeeshop Ride

April 15th, 2020 12:39
Thrid wave espresso at your local independant café is hard to beat. But you can get pretty darn close (and actual spot on) at home with a bit of practice.  Here are some espresso tips
Becoming familiar with the wonders of great espresso is one of collateral gains I've made so far through riding a bike... I discovered good ( really good) espresso in 2013 in Santa Barbara, California. Thank you cycling, thank you teammates - more ...

Do Coffee Like a Cycling Pro:
I love bikes. I love fun. I also love... coffee. Over the years as a cyclist, I've traveled to over 20 countries. I've learned how to win, how to lose, how to keep trying and sometimes how to make the impossible possible. I've learned how to ask ...

Avocado Toast Alternative
Though I haven't even enjoyed a slice in 2019, I had a sudden craving for avocado toast today... but there was no bread in sight. I whipped up savoury protein pancakes instead, and it was just as fast and simple as making toast. That's my style of ...

Lex Albrecht at the 2019 Tour CIBC Charles Bruneau
The hardest part of my job isn't the training or racing, it's everything else that surrounds it.   One of those challenging elements is having to turn down the chance to ride with family, friends, and fellow cycling enthusiasts. But this ...

Being an Athlete Over the Holidays

Lex Albrecht, professional Canadian Cyclist and Iris ambassador, in Tucson Arizona
how being an athlete makes the holidays different! Most winters, I head south before the holidays to begin off-season training. Florida, California and even Colorado have been my destinations in the past. This year I'm in Tucson, Arizona right ...

Bike selfie. I do this sometimes to see what my face looks like when I feel this happy. Just to check. Lol. #AdventureSeeker #senabluetooth #girlswhoride #motorcyclelife #motorcyclehelmets

I MADE MY OWN #HORCHATA! And I made it with maple syrup from Québec. And it's DELICIOUS. And I think it could win the #maplesyrup recipe challenge! Please give it a vote by clicking the link in my bio! (The video showing how to make the recipe - 4 ingredients and a few minutes - is on my YouTube channel and the latest blog on www.lexalbrecht.com). THANKS FOR VOTING FOR MY CANADIAN HORCHATA! #erable #erableduquebec #érable maplesyruprecipes #veganrecipes #horchatarecipe #homemadehorchata #vitamixrecipe
New quarantine reflex: stock up on the good stuff. @eightouncecoffee has a whole bunch of #thirdwavecoffee roasters' products available online right now. Pretty fun to shop for them all in one place! Current stock: @detourcoffee, and pulling shots with the #Leverpresso. #CAFN8me #coffee #coffeebeans #thirdwavecoffee #espresso #leverpressocoffee #portablecoffeemaker #manualespresso #manualespressomachine #detourcoffee #detourroasters #th3rdwave
I was on my bike and this girl was playing her violin at the riverside. I like to think she was enjoying doing her thing, as much as I was enjoying doing mine. #fromwhereiride #cyclinglife #cyclistlife #ruralroads #riverside #violin #violinist #violinistsofinstagram #musicinnature #springtime
New battery day. I love that I can change my @4iiiicom's battery myself, that it takes the same size as my kitchen scale and my bathroom scale, and that the trusty dolla store sells them. Easy to find, easy to do. That leaves efforts for other stuff! #4iiii #4iiiipowermeter #4iiiiprecision #4iiiipodiiiium #4iiiicom #4iiiiambassador #4iiiinnovations #4iiii_powermeter #cyclistsofinstagram #cyclist #cyclinggirl #powermeter #powermetertraining #poweredby4iiii
I am a gently-hit-two-birds-with-one-stone kinda girl. For example, I almost always do something while brushing my teeth, and I also try to pick my mid-ride pee-break spots wisely : where there's something interesting to look at, that I might otherwise never get to see. Like this stuff. #aglife #cyclistlife #rurallife #farmlife #quebec #canada #fromwhereiride #fromwhereimictate
Good thing I had some #homegym tools on hand other than exercise bands (those darn things keep snapping like there's no tomorrow). I like my #workout tools like I like my strength and stability for riding and running: SOLID. #elasticbandproblems #cyclistlife #homegym #coreworkout #corestrength #corestrengthening #corestrengthtraining #corestrengtheningexercises
Socially distanced group riding formation. (Le Roi du Parc et sa blonde ont le droit aux selfies rapprochés.) I love riding my BIKE. I love riding my bike in great places even more. I love riding my bike in great places, with great people even more than that! #livingthedream #rideconnected #adventureseeker #senar1 #senabluetooth #fromwhereIride #Garneau
I ran out of prepared meals on the weekend. It was a mess. No, I was a mess, on the couch post-training, waiting for the lunch fairy to show up. She didn't. The freezer is stocked again. Problem solved. #cyclistproblems #cyclistsolutions #athletelife #mealprep #mealprepideas #mealprepping #inmyfreezer #freezermeals #freezerstash #freezercooking #freezerfriendly
