|You will need a burr grinder, filters, a brewing device preferably without a hot plate for the carafe. Our son gave us this stuff several years ago for Christmas. There is a press pot and an espresso stove top unit Gene uses for smaller quantities.|
|Select quality coffee beans. Do not use beans with an oily look as they have been over roasted. Gene's favorite is Kulmans but Ed has left the business. We use Boca Java at this point.|
|Measure by weight 5 grams of beans for every 8 oz. of water. Gene is very specific about this. And we must use distilled water. No stray chemicals to influence the taste.|
|Looks like this while "steeping in the flavor"|
|Set a time for 4 minutes. This allows the grounds to begin releasing all that good flavor. Once the 4 minutes have passed, place the carafe in the holder and restart the brewer.|
|Brew cycle is complete and now you can sit and enjoy the perfect cup of coffee along with a little Valium tablet or a large hunk of chocolate.|
!!!!!! CAUTION !!!!!!
|In addition, you may need to change your shirt after cleaning up from the mess made by your lack of attention. The soiling of you clothing adds time to this %*#& process and detracts from the perfect cup of coffee.|
