“I forgot how good your coffee is”, The Man said after returning from a weeklong visit at his sister’s house in Washington. She has a single serve k cup type coffee maker. Not enough control over the end product for me. Sorry Sis in law, my coffee is better.
First let me say, I do nothing prior to my first cup of coffee……except make the coffee. That first sip of velvety, slightly bitter, hint of smokey chocolate goodness is the most wonderful way to start my day!! Here’s how I do it.
Get your favorite whole bean coffee. I like French, Italian, or Esspresso roasts. Today I’m using Italian roast.
Grind to your desired grind. I grind mine super fine. A barista gave me that tip. He tried explaining the science behind it, but thought better of it, as my eyes were glazed over thinking of nothing but getting my coffee done. I do remember he said something about the oils in the beans.
Close lid and start………
There you have it!! The best coffee ever!!!
