Black liquid karma. The grease that gets you going in the morning.


I like my women like I like my coffee…
Ground up and in the freezer.

Okay, that one is a bit funny, but it isn’t exactly true. Recently I’ve learned the wonder of freshly roasted coffee. Here in Edmonton a company called Transcend does an excellent job of supplying fresh roasted beans. However, other than good fresh beans, the brewing method is the most important part of making great coffee. I feel that too many people ignore this.

There are tons of ways to make coffee. There are numerous variables contributing to the taste and the name of the game is controlling those variables. Some methods are better than others. Some are needlessly expensive and most people assume it requires an expensive appliance to do. Yeah a $50 coffee maker is too expensive for me; I’m cheap. So, as a public service announcement I want to show my favorite method.

Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is how to brew a great cup of coffee!
