You don't use filters for instant coffee

Spoon it into your coffee cup and add hot water.........

My only requirement is an electric percolator and fresh ground dark bean. I prefer Ruta Maya dark. I am not a coffee fanatic and only have one cup in the AM.

I once had two Mr Coffees. Good coffee from one and bad from the other. I researched coffee making. The reason the percolator works so well is that it gets the water to boiling. Not getting the water hot enough is why you get bad coffee. I got a Cuisinart back then because it was supposed to get the water hot enough. It does.

Honestly can't say if I prefer the Ninja or the Mr Coffee.
Youngest gave us a Keurig back around '08 or '09 so we felt obligated to use it. So very happy it died after about 3 years. Bought us a Ninja and like it so much bought a second to save for when the current Ninja dies. Got a 4 cup Mr Coffee for the RV but reality was only two cups so gave it to Goodwill and bought a 12 cup Mr Coffee. Mr Coffee won't break the bank. Both brew a great pot of go juice.


Fishing, a man knows a serenity of soul and peace of mind that he finds in doing nothing else, and it makes no difference whether or not he catches anything. The mind of a true fisherman is not on petty subjects.

During the covid lockdown I turned into a coffee snob. Not ashamed by it either... life is simply too short to drink bad coffee.

I switched from a kurig machine with store bought K pods to the DIY reusable pods with fresh grounds. Then went to a french press, then a pour over. Ended up back with the old Mr. Coffee machine that had been up in the corner of the pantry ever since I got the first kurig machine.

What I realized is that what makes good coffee is good beans that are fresh ground. Pepsi challenge on the french press and pour over methods vs. the regular drip machine and you cannot tell the difference. Anyone who tells you differently has more time on their hands than sense in their head. The only trick is to get the right proportion of your fresh ground coffee matched with how much water you use.

If you make a pot and pour it all up right away, any old pot will do. If you refill your mug throughout the morning then look for one with a vacuum insulated pot.

How ever you make your coffee just add a couple fresh cooked bacon with it and you have heaven for a few minutes.

I do sometimes have bacon while having coffee but I’m thinking you may do it differently, please share-


What has happed to you does not define who you are-

HOW you react to what happens to you DOES!

Nothing special, just thick bacon for my taste.

It is amazing how much practical work can get done during a zoom meeting once you turn your camera off.
