Last evening we had an 'alternative new years party' at our church. I
crossed out the label on one of those big green Folgers decaf plastic
pop top containers and wrote 'not Folgers' on it.
Filled it with a nicely roasted blend of Ethiopian Sidamo decaf and
African highland decaf.
Already ground of course.
Brewed it with the Bunn commercial version I got from ebay, which you
folks helped me tweak.
The thermostat lets the water come through the filter now at about 203F.
Also it has a 'slow' shower head, so the water does not race through and
wash all the grounds up over the top of the basket.
It does make a pretty good cup, at about 4 gallons per hour!
There were some
'great coffee, Peter'
comments as the night went on, and about 15 people did drink the whole
pound and a half.
Not much was really said until we ran out of the green, and someone
opened another CAN. (Switched to commercial coffee)
You know, that vacuum packed for freshness stuff?
What despicable coffee!!!
You really get to know how great coffee can be when you compare it to
what you had been used to :)
The rest of the new-can-brewed got poured down the sink.
Next time I will bring more of the 'good stuff'
People are starting to appreciate home roasted.
Happy New Year to all, from here in LHC
