Even better when the neighbours do all the shoveling.

My morning coffee was 8 hours ago, I'm making afternoon herb tea while taking care of the laundry. I have to use the dryer today, we still have lots of rain.

This morning's coffee was especially welcome as I looked out to see a sea of white--8" of snow in every direction. But with hot oat meal with blueberries, I became more enthused about our first snow of the winter. I may not feel like that after I start shoveling. Good exercise, right?

Enjoy your day.

Thanks, Tom. I'm still skeptical I'll like it. I assume you don't add any cream or sugar to it?

Feeling a scratchy throat,  I had hot tea this morning. It went well with my New Year's Day blueberry pancakes and grapefruit.

There’s hope for you, Randall. Decades after I first tried and hated iced coffee, I tried it again and liked it.

To make cold brew, I measure ground coffee into a strainer in the brew pot, fill the pot with water and put in fridge. After 24 hours, pour into quart lidded jars and enjoy daily for a week.

I’m experimenting—more or less than 12 tbsp with 44 oz and more time in fridge.

I guess I don't know what "cold brew" coffee is. Does it come out cold? If so, yuck. I know I don't like iced coffee. If I remember, I'll google cold brew. I may have to go back to my old electric percolator to see if my coffee remains bitter. It could be the brand.

sensitive to bitterness - do you mean some people can't taste it? I like the slight bitterness of coffee, or beer, endives and many other things.

When you need to limit your caffeine to one cup per day.

Sensitivity to bitterness is a genetic trait that can be tested for.  Interestingly, people who are sensitive to bitterness are likely to drink slightly more coffee.


I recently resumed filling in my lineage on and noted they now offer to tell you some of your traits, based on your existing DNA analysis, for about ten bucks.  So I did.  It showed, among other things that I'm sensitive to bitterness.  (actually, their accuracy on most tratis was about 50% - such as stating wrongly I have freckles, no tendency to baldness, and have grey or blue eyes).  

I like the coffee aroma very much.  It's difficult for me to produce that at home.  Percolators did it, but the coffee they made was less flavorful and more burnt than most people like today,

I'm trying lots of different dark coffees recently, & most of them are not bitter.
