Yesterday was my first try with my new grind and brew coffeemaker (pictured above in a pic taken from the internet). It took me 45 minutes to make the first pot, because I had to read directions, run water through to clean dust from the inside, and figure out how everything went together. I am sure Nick thought Juan Valdez had had to bring the beans all the way from Colombia.
It came out just okay. I put in six cups of water, set it on “strong” and ground enough beans for eight cups, since I like a hearty cup. Still not strong enough.
This morning, 6 cups of water but ground beans for 12. I forgot to put the little filter liner in the first pot and it ran all over the place. Sigh. So waiting for the second pot to brew. But I think I’ll come in under 30 minutes today!
