Baby Barista

I like having someone make coffee for me but this isn’t exactly what I had in mind.

Erik taught Orion how to make coffee—something I really wish he hadn’t done—and now Orion wants to make coffee every day. He gets on his stool, grabs the coffee beans, puts them in the grinder and grinds away. He’s pretty good at this part.

The next step—getting the grounds into the coffee maker—doesn’t go quite so smoothly. As you could imagine, it ends up everywhere, including all over him (which I fear will either get into his mouth or otherwise absorb into his person, resulting in a jittery, caffeinated toddler, and I don’t even want to think about what that might be like).

Aside from always having to clean up a mountain of coffee grounds and dealing with a potentially cracked out kiddo, I also fear for the life of the glass coffee pot, not to mention the possibility of Orion falling off the stool.

Orion will sometimes sneak away during the day to make coffee, but luckily the telltale sound of the coffee grinder gives him away. Often he will do it while I’m in the kitchen making dinner—which is obviously better because I’m there to keep an eye on the situation brewing, but it distracts me from whatever else I’m trying to accomplish, like not dropping a 375 degree baking dish on my feet.

Other than the mess he makes, it’s kinda nice (and incredibly cute) having my own little Mr. Coffee. Starbucks ain’t got nothing on him.
