On a Quest for that perfect cup of Joe
For many years, I settled for this. I am the only coffee drinker in the house.
This is simple, fast and easy to make for one. Then, I became coffee challenged.
Or snobbish. It just wasn't good enough. Thus, began my quest.
Taking cooking classes a few years ago at Williams Sonoma, I found this:
I had begun to relish the flavor of latte. This, was supposed to deliver it!
And, it kinda did. Kinda, you ask? It was time consuming, about 8-10 mins for a 6 oz. cup.
Sorry, that's a long time for me. And it needed maintenance. I had to fill the
the coffee and the milk chambers, then screw the contraption together. Then, plug and wait. Then, it all had to be cleaned
and dried. For one 6 oz. cup. And, it wasn't HOT. I like my coffee HOT and I like
a mug, about 10 oz of coffee.
My search continued.
Was this the Holy Grail? It was easy, fast and relatively easy to clean. I could use pods
or my own coffee! What more could I ask, you ask? More coffee. And HOT coffee.
I had to microwave the cup before I drank it. And I would need 2 cups to satisfy.
There has got to be a better way. It is just a cup of Joe, just for me.
