Good coffee is easy to make. I spent 25 years without making coffee, then rediscovered it and it;s easy.

I’m not a super-fancy-coffee-demanding person. All I want is a cup of good French Roast. It takes two tablespoons of reasonable coffee (I use Equal Exchange) and some hot water. That’s it! I don’t even grind my own. A mug, a cone, a filter, and an electric kettle. That’s all. Sits on a table in my office.

So why is it when I go to almost any place that serves coffee—I’m looking at you, Starbucks—what I get is some garbage that tastes like it’s been burnt two or three times?

Now offering fine cheeses with my whine.

So, what’s your coffee preference, friends?
