Hello my little Happy Harvest Queens!
Are your homes ready for Fall?
We aren't doing to much ...
a wreath here, a fresh bouquet there...
Like I said not to much.
One thing that I love about fall are the cooler temps. and the temptation to drink coffee all day long.
Truthfully, I really try not to drink it all day. We have been really good about just having 2 or even 3 cups in the morning and then that's it. In order to encourage and continued that behavior, I moved the big, beautiful, 12 cup, Cuisinart out and moved the little, 8 cup, Farberware percolator in. We love it. It makes a great, quick pot of coffee for the workday morning. Hubs and I agree that percolated coffee is much better than the automatic drip.
For guests or even just Saturday mornings I prefer the Chemex. Pronounced kim-ex, it looks European but it was invented and designed by a German Chemist here in America. The design has never changed and is still made here in the US.
I have tried all kinds of different coffee makers but this is my favorite. Even better than the highly overrated (in my opinion) French Press. If you would like to get one, I got mine here.
Husband thinks it takes to long, but I think it is worth it.
I use my regular coffee and follow these directions.
A beautiful, clean (no sediment at the bottom) cup of coffee!
