Good Coffee

I was married a little over a month ago, and one of the most commonly used gifts we received was a simple coffee grinder.

I am the primary coffee drinker in this household, and I like coffee quite a bit. But let me tell you: if you do not have a coffee grinder, or a French press, you are missing out. Grinding coffee beans first thing in the morning, and then brewing super-fresh coffee with filtered water is just about the best at-home coffee experience one can have.

As a bonus, a few weeks ago I was able to make the elusive “perfect” cup of coffee. It was well-balanced, with strong flavor but enough room to support a bit of sugar. That’s tough to do, but I’m convinced I couldn’t’ve done it without the coffee grinder. Coffee grinder, I salute you!

And, of course, I salute good coffee too.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
