A PERFECT CUP OF COFFEE
What a treat to enjoy a cup of coffee,
custom brewed to order . . .
Start with fresh roasted Costa Rica "Helsar estate" beans,
carefully measured and weighed (to the gram) . . .
then fresh ground (a burr grinder, of course)
and transfered to a filter paper cone,
in the classic Chemex coffee maker . . .
next preheated (205˚ F) water is carefully poured
on the ground coffee (slowly, allowing the "bloom" to develop),
as the scale measures the exact coffee amount.
(Can you smell it?)
then preheat the mug with hot water,
and fill with freshly brewed Costa Rican coffee.
A perfect cup of coffee!
The only thing that would make this better . . .
warm blueberry/pear pie, fresh from the oven.
