I don’t find making fresh coffee a particularly long-winded task. Get the beans out, grind them, add to the coffee maker, add water, push button.
By the time, I’ve cut some bread for toast, or eaten a banana (a quick breakfast snack), the coffee is ready.
As I tend to suffer from over-acidity – and the dreaded acid reflux from time to time – I have been toying with the idea of Cold Brew Coffee
It’s the heat that apparently leaches the acid from the coffee, and cold brew avoids this to a large extent. I’m not sure, of course, until I try it. It’s a bit like decaffeinated. I’ve never found one yet that doesn’t detract from the flavor. It’s a bit like alcohol free beer – that’s actually a great idea in my view. I drink beer for the flavor, not to get inebriated, and a full-flavored alcohol free beer would be great. I could drink a gallon, and never worry about DUI, or a hangover the next day. Thing is, alcohol free beer has even less flavor than Bud Light (if that’s possible).
Anyway, now I have drunk that cup of coffee in the photograph – yes that was truly a fresh brewed photograph of a fresh brewed cup – it’s on with the day’s tasks ahead.
Unfortunately, Kathy is not feeling at all well today, and I’ve persuaded her to stay in bed. Sometimes one day off can lead to a speedier recovery, instead of ending up soldiering on, and winding up with two weeks of illness. It seems like she’s got a flu-type bug, along with a sinus blockage.
I’m going to be playing nurse today, as well as web designer.
