  • Merry Christmas 2021

    We made it around another year to Christmas. SAM’s Christmas present was a Krup GX550 coffee grinder. She was very happy!

    Later, I set it up and put in some recently roasted Pikes Place coffee beans, set it to 6.5 medium grind and 6 cups worth. The whole beans looked great, smelled heavenly and glistened with oils. In a few seconds the beans were ground and the quantity seemed large for 6 cups.

    KRUPS Precision Grinder Flat Burr Coffee for Drip/Espresso/PourOver/ColdBrew, 12 cup, Black

    I put 1/8 cup measure into the drip machine filter and added enough water for 6 cups. The machine dripped for several minutes and all the while I was salivating. The brew that resulted was abrasive and did not taste like a Starbucks Pike Place at all – it was just like Maxwell House. Later in the day I made a pot with 1/8 cup and 4 cups of water. This was better and SAM said so. Tomorrow will be 1/4 cup coffee to 6 cups of water.

    I will let you know how the adventure proceeds.
