Perhaps I'm spendin too much time on coffee.
My 5 yr old son made a lego coffee bar today.

On the counter (L to R) are:
Drum roaster
Grinder
Espresso machine

To the left of the counter is a popcorn machine & whip cream dispenser. The lego man is sporting a one-of-a-kind, handmade espresso goblet & quite a large rifle. I'm not sure what the story with the gun is, but it is moose season here :-)

Awesome!  Welcome to the club...My 5 y/o asked Santa to bring him a toy espresso machine last year. When Santa asked what else he wanted, he just said "something for my Mom and my Dad."

HOW CUTE!!

Moose season, sounds like fun and the logical thing to do after consuming espresso and popcorn!

That's great! (Did he get one?)

My kids love coffee. They beg for sips of mine, no matter if its a cappuchino or a straight espresso shot. They also come running when I roast because they like to munch on freshly roasted beans.

Well, I couldn't find one in stock anywhere, so I got him a toy Braun drip. It gurgles, a light comes on, and he has to put water in the reservoir, so it will fill the carafe. He still wants the espresso machine, and I still can't find one in stock anywhere...at least one of the ones I want to get him. He often drinks "coffee" with us. It's primarily foam, but he always asks for some of the brown part too...I try to give him decaf. My wife is Venezuelan (and I'm white bread), so it's very much a part of our family culture (my in-laws live with us most of the year).

That's awesome! Lots of fond memories playing with Legos growing up. I still have all of them and have purchased a couple Mindstorm sets.
