Coffee plays an integral role in our lives. Think about how many important meetings, study sessions, major political decisions, date night and life-changing talks were fuelled by the ubiquitous brown substance. My parents were never coffee drinkers, but that didn’t hold me back from starting at an early age. It was the Tim Horton’s “Double Double” that lured me in.
Times have changed and so have my coffee habits. I switched careers and had to pinch pennies, so I started making coffee at home. I switched careers again, but now enjoyed the coffee I was making at home, so I upgraded my equipment. I’ve taken time to learn about the beans and their different characteristics, about the different processes of making coffee and the different methods used to brew.
Today, I enjoy the routine of making my coffee almost as much as the coffee itself, and I’d like to share that routine with you.
