I had a Keurig coffee brewed cup once. What a waste.
I find the ritual of making coffee is part of my morning routine. I'm a
morning person and I drink coffee as a culinary experience (thanks to
Tom and Maria), not a caffeine delivery system so I don't mind spending
a very small amount of time to do it right.
"Right" for me is heating a kettle of water. While that is heating I
fold a #4 cone filter to fit into my new Bonavita ceramic cone and then
pour hot water in the cone which heats up while I grind coffee, and
additional hot water into a glass thermal cup. The ground coffee is
weighed (15 g.) and the water is poured from the cone, the ground coffee
poured into the cone, placed on the scale which is tared to 0. Then I
add 250g. of hot water from the kettle and let it steep for about 2
minutes, stir and steep another 2 minutes and filter the coffee into the
pre-heated glass thermal cup.
The only real inconvenience is having to wait 4 minutes for the coffee
The home coffee "convenience" market is a gold mine for gadget freaks
and creative marketing. The world is awash is cheap and inferior
coffee, marketed as "gourmet" and packaged at huge profits. Let's not
discourage too many stale ground coffee customers from their nirvana,
lest we run short of the good stuff.
