How to Brew a Good Cup of Coffee

February 1, 2010

I came across this video over on Sensible Erection (possibly NSFW link). Gonna go try this now.

By the way, I am extremely appreciative of the love this blog has received in the last few days. It’s been picked up by a few food blogs and news sites (starting with Reddit and The Smithsonian’s Food & Think blog), sending thousands of people this way. Now that people are actually paying attention, I’ll try to update more than once a month.

    Sugar and milk is all I put in my coffee. But try dunking bread in Coca-Cola. Very good. You can’t leave it in for too long otherwise it’ll go soggy and drown.

    If you don’t like coffee, just admit it. Simply enjoy your salmons, eggs, cheese or other delicacies *instead* of the coffee. Coffee can’t be improved by mixing it with weird stuff. To a coffee lover, that’s like gilding the lily. If you don’t like coffee, just abstain. No-one will think any less of you for not liking coffee. Maybe you’re a tea-man, but you just don’t know it yet?

    Ignore swede and keep up the good work. I am also a black coffee believer but this is a very entertaining blog. Keep it going!

    I shared the love on Metafilter a few days ago.

    So perhaps I have a voice in what you review next (heh)? I suggest mayonnaise and/or crumbled up Doritos in the grounds.

    Adriano: That’s a new one. Sounds gross, but that’s never stopped me before.

    Swede: I appreciate your opinion and speculation. However, you are wrong. I love coffee. I love it black, I love it with cream, I love it with sugar. But I also love variety and discovering new things. These two passions are not mutually exclusive. I don’t believe in prescriptive rules about how a food “should” be enjoyed. Enjoyment is the point, and how an individual gets there is irrelevant.

    Part of the joy of living in a world with unprecedented access to a variety of foods is seeing how they go together.

    demostheneses.or.locke: Thank you very much!

    Taft: Given how many visitors you’ve brought, you certainly do enjoy special privilege. 🙂 Mayonnaise it is!

    I stumbled on your blog, and wanted to tell you about a tradition in my family. I’m from rural eastern North Car0lina, and my family has been having “cheese in coffee” as a treat as long as I can remember. It should be hoop cheese, or “rat” cheese — a medium cheddar that is NEVER refrigerated, and has either a red or black rind. Cut the cheese into large-ish chunks, pour very strong, very hot, very fresh coffee over it in a big, deep cup. Let it steep while you toast two pieces of bread. Once the bread is toasted, fish the cheese out in wonderfully warm, soft globs and eat them off the toasted bread. Then you dump out the coffee — it’s done its part by melting and flavoring the cheese.

    Sorry, I’ll stick to my non-moldy coffee, thanks.
