Jamaica Me'Swe't this Machine-Free Blonde Roast Coffee

Thursday, October 31, 2013

Okay, I remember trying to do this about 7 years ago, when the KeurigⓇ machine at the mortgage company where I'dworked had a temporary malfunction. I wanted to use the Jamaican-grown Green Mountain Breakfast Blend coffee ... roughly (but not totally) equivalent to the Starbucks Veranda Blend I'd left behind ... both "coffee blondies" ...

Not knowing how to do this, then... I'd failed miserably. Except (sorta) with K-CupⓇ teas ...

Enter my recent Starbucks boycott. Also the new nutritional knowledge that unfiltered coffee, Espresso and French-press type coffee have to be avoided in cases of monitoring one's cholesterol levels ... which - along with diabetes - has been a concern of mine (and I've been medically treated for high blood cholesterol for nearly 2 decades).

I find this coffee is tasty, and I'd just learned how to do it right (no Microwave wanted--I'd have to leave this one-person office in the morning when I have to guard the phones, and go down to the second floor) ... and it is mild enough for my 2nd helping in nearly one fell swoop ...

Here are the instructions ... and sometimes it's messy and tedious (requires GREAT patience in its execution) ... www.instructables.com/id
but I am no stranger to sweating it out under pretty austere conditions ... lol
