I Heart Coffee

I love coffee. I love the way a good cup of coffee tastes, I enjoy the whole process of sipping a warm cup of coffee first thing in the morning. I love the smell and the comfy atmosphere of sitting around chatting over a cup of coffee. I also love my coffeemaker. I pour whole beans in the top, set the timer and at 5:30 in the morning the machine grinds the beans and brews a fresh pot. It makes a very good cup of coffee. It’s not percolated, that’s true, but still a damn fine cup of coffee. I set my coffeemaker to make six cups of coffee in the morning and I drink half of the pot when I get back from the gym while I’m getting ready for work, and the other half in a travel mug on my drive to work. On the weekends I just keep refilling my mug and sipping at it throughout the day. I really enjoy it.

I do find coffee pee kind of weird though, don’t you?

    I heart coffee too. What do you think of a coffee press? I just saw one the other day at a restaurant and thought it was a neat little gadget. I’ve added it to my Xmas list.

    Hi Suze!

    I like the coffee press, but I wouldn’t use it everyday. For one, it doesn’t make enough coffee at a time for me to enjoy my 6-8 cups in the morning, but I also really love setting the timer at night and waking up to an already freshly brewed pot.

    Unless your french press comes with coffee making elves that get up a half hour before you do to make the coffee. In that case, sign me up!! 🙂

    You can get a BIG French press, one that will make 6-8 cups, and you can even get one that’s insulated. But you’re right – it doesn’t make itself.
