I heartily endorse being a coffee nut. I have some amazing Costa Rican coffee that I hide from everyone in our house.

After doing some research, I've found that a lot of coffee makers brew at 185-190*, which is pretty low to extract the flavors from fresh ground beans. To combat that, I now heat up my tea kettle and pour the hot water (160-180*) into the reservior. Results are a piping hot (proper temp) cup-o-joe.
Now this is a great idea. When I drank coffee, I was always disappointed with the cooler temps. We tried Mr. Coffee, an expensive Bunn, and a Cuisinart, they were never hot enough.

Thanks Pac, may need to look into it.

Since culinary school is a no-go for me right now, I decided to become a Master Gardener. I picked up the textbook yesterday - for a 12-week class, it's bigger than the 15-month culinary program book! Luckily it's in a 3-ring binder, so I can just take the chapters I need to each class So after lunch, I need to start studying.

Have a great day!
We can set up a table for you to study at...

Not kidding about them...but I waited until I got to work to eat one. I made a batch of mini-scones last night for a coffee break at work today with the Social Workers while we went over all the patients. They were a big hit. I left two for Shrek for his morning coffee.

Get some rest Sweetie, get your body settled down. You are not a PITA, I understand how much it takes out of you. Hugs
