Coffee, in general, is no good without Bushmill's, brown and white sugar, with whipped cream on top.

Instant coffee...the cold coffee in the pot...

I got so tired of the scoop, dump, scoop, dump process. So I scooped and dumped into a measuring cup. Then I threw the scoop out and placed the measuring cup in the coffee canister. One scoop, one dump. That measuring cup goes from canister to canister. It was blue plastic at one time. But it has been serving coffee for so long now, it is brown. Exactly a 1/3 cup for a 12 cup pot of coffee. I do not like sludge coffee.

I am already on my second half of my second pot today. I have been drinking coffee like this for so many years, that it no longer has a caffeine effect on me. But every three months or so, I get on a tea break. Black, a little sugar.

I used to own a Brown Betty tea pot. It even had a little lip inside on the wall to catch the tea leaves. Unfortunately I cannot find loose tea leaves near where I live without going into Fannuil Hall. Our local tourist trap. So I got rid of the tea pot.

Occasionally I'll have some strong, percolated coffee and will get a buzz out of them.

For years and years I've used a moka express to do my coffee. I usually use Segafreddo or Lavazza Qualità Oro. In the morning I like a shot of it in a small coffee cup. I like it the way the Italians say it should be: dark as night, hot as hell and sweet as love. In the summer, I like iced coffee, more dilute than the traditional espresso style, with plenty of ice and sugar. Picks you up on a hot summer's day. Gives you go for the rest of the day. Any more than that and I get palpitations!

I bought some Starbucks Via instant coffee to take backpacking with me. I tried it last night at camp and it was very good, way better than the Folgers packets I've been using.
But at about 75 cents per serving they are pricey.

There's probably a decent brand that is lot cheaper per serving. Might have to buy in bulk though.

Folgers, Maxwell House, etc. are all horrible. Ugh. My dad used to drink Folgers instant. I wish I could go back in time and buy him a coffeemaker. I wasn't into food when I was still living at home.
