    Making Coffee

    I started drinking coffee late in life so that I could get away from my early morning soda.

    What do people like for making coffee at home?

    At the office, I normally have gone to the coffee/expresso console --with the coffee beans, vanilla and cocoa, etc. However, I am not yet going to the office again.

    I may just need the simplest one with few cleanup requirements. But maybe it is better to just get an economical version, since our economy will take time to recover, the Lord willing.

    I've sold out and gone to the Kuerig. Making it "a cup at a time" means

    A) it's always fresh
    2) I can choose the blend I want - breakfast, mild, medium, dark...
    C) My wife can have her "blonde" coffee and I can have my dark roast
    D) The pot doesn't sit around and get that "burnt" taste

    and other stuff

    V: That you have a bunch of money to spend on coffee but don't want to go to Starbucks to do it.

    Yeah, I ONLY got to Starbucks when it's a last resort - it tastes burnt to me. And I buy my Kuerig coffee in bulk from Amazon.

    I saw a dual maker by Hamilton so I could choose what I want.

    I noticed there are k-cup water filters for Keurig 2.0 Coffee Machines. I might just use bottled water instead (or sometimes tap water).

    Ours at home does both a pot and/or a Kuerig cup. Since my wife has been working from home a lot, it makes more sense for her to make a pot.
    When we're just "grabbing a cup to go", the single serve is the best.

    To go? Maybe you need a coffee maker for your truck.

    Maybe a dual generic 2-way maker option is the way to go.

    It looks like the prices is fifty cents a cup. I do drink an anti-oxidant drink at about $2 a pop. The good thing that has been happening is that I am not as fond of soda as I used to be.

    OR, McDonald's on the way where I can get a "senior cup" for 50cent!

    Or a syringe?
