I'm perkin' over here!!!


I have been on the quest for a great cup of coffee for a long time.......my parameters aren't that high.......I just really want it to be HOT!!!!!!!!....it goes back several years when I started out with the coffee maker that ground my beans for me right before it brewed...then I tried to clean it, I took it apart and couldn't get it back together, so I had to shove my knife block in front of it to keep the basket in place so it would brew....I got sick of that and two years ago I just got a regular old Mr. Coffee from Target......it has been fine......but not great......I loved the coffee at marzipanmom's house....but it was too daunting to re-create.....organic beans and a coffee maker they don't make any more .... I'd have to try and find it on ebay....then there was my Dad's coffee.......he switched to an old fashioned percolator over the summer and I raved about how hot it was!!!!....but the drawback was it didn't have a delay start for the morning.....so a few weeks ago I broke down and bought a Cuisinart and the first time I brewed coffee I was dissappointed.......not very hot :(...I started putting the creamer in my mug and heating it the microwave before I even poured the coffee!....every morning I was dissappointed.....then this past week I had piping hot coffee at my Dad's every morning!....so....yesterday I called Bed, Bath and Beyond and they said I could return my coffee maker without a box........I could feel myself starting to get giddy.....I ran in and did a quick exchange for my new Farberware percolator!!!......today is the first day of the rest of my life!!!!!!!......I don't care about the delay start....I don't pour my first cup until I make the kids lunches...so it had plenty of time to brew.....and I'm not picky about my brand of coffee or beans...I put so much french vanilla creamer in it it doesn't matter......I just want it HOT!!!.....and it was so hot I couldn't take a sip or hold my hands around my mug for at least 5 minutes!!!!!.......it will be such a treat every morning!

I love your reflection in the coffee pot, by the way.

Well, now we're on to something. Who knew you'd have to go low tech to get what you've been looking for. Life lesson, perhaps?
