Problem is that we no longer own a coffee maker and this coffee doesn't come in the coffee pod we need. And, I had to have some of this coffee because it is just that yummy. So, I went home empty-handed yet determined to find a way. Should we buy a small, inexpensive drip coffee maker? Should we get some reusable coffee pods? I weighed the pros and cons of both options and decided to order some reusable coffee pods. In the meantime, we went back to the store and got the coffee on another trip.
That brings us to today. I had the coffee and the pods were still on their way. So, I decided to dig out my stovetop percolator. This was a gift to me many years ago from my kids for camping. Turns out we never needed to use it to make coffee. I used it for tea water, so it was not a bad gift. But, I never had used it for coffee, always being a bit intimidated by the process. I mean, I love my push-button coffee maker. We are a perfect match. It always delivers the exact same coffee, day after day.
But, I wanted to have my yummy coffee, so I got brave. I watched a couple YouTube videos and then gave it a try. Of course, it worked. I was very pleased with the results. I do need to tweak it a little, but that will come with practice. It was a bit strong. I will just use less coffee next time. Hooray!
