Out of the Blue

Man, it's been a while since I had a coffee misadventure, but this morning I managed to knock over the Melitta cone full of ground coffee and then, I guess a bit addled after scooping what I could back into the cone, I forget to pour out the hot water that was warming the carafe out before starting to pour the boiling water into the cone to boot, creating a little flood as the brewed coffee spilled over the edge. Along the way I had to grind a bit more coffee to make up for what was lost, and then lost the spillage further confusing the coffee to water ratio.

The coffee came out tasting pretty crappy... but that's good news, 'cause if it was the best I'd ever brewed, I'd never be able (or want) to recreate the recipe.

I drink Blue Mountain coffee and I also use a Krupps maker with permanent filter but there istn a built in grinder. I bought a cheapy cheapy grinder from the market years ago and that does the job fine for me.

As it is, I'm quickly losing patience with the site. Don't get me wrong, I love the site, but the excessive ads are just too much; for me and my 56k both. Now Just a minute ago I loaded up the site to check the latest updates and I get the takeover ad, I say okay and let it slide, but then the news page loads up. What happens? I get a flash ad, something I really wish you would take a stand against and disallow on your site, for BF1942: Secret Weapons. The ad has some guy flying around my ENTIRE SCREEN on a jetpack. Needless to say, it's not something I enjoy when I'm on a 24" monitor.

Things are really beginning to go too far.

That's been my experience with the gold-plated baskets as well... might have to do with how finely I grind the coffee.

nah, it happens with the coarse ground domestic (Maxwell Haus etc) as well. I keep one around to use in a pinch if I run out of paper but thats about it.
