I was gratified to hear that Youngest Grandson (now 16! !! ! ) doesn’t like his mother’s coffee because “it isn’t like the way Grandmar makes it.” #3 Daughter always called me Mar (mare), short for Marian, and she had the first grandson, so all the grands call me Grandmar.
ANYWAY, here’s how I do coffee, just in case you’re interested.
Grandmar MomGoth’s Coffee
- 2 Tbsp hazelnut coffee
- 2 Tbsp decaf hazelnut coffee
- 8 cups tap water
- coffeemaker set to Bold brew
I don’t always buy Folgers. As you can see, my grocery stopped carrying Folgers decaf hazelnut, so I buy whatever ground decaf hazelnut I can find and put it in the old Folgers canister. Why don’t I just leave it in the container it comes in? Just a little touch OCD is why. I reckon if that’s the worst manifestation of it I have, I’m ahead of the game.
P.S. Daughters #1-3 are my stepdaughters, who I adopted when Charlie and I got married, so that’s why they call me by my name. #4 Daughter came forth from me in joy and pain, and she calls me Mom.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about coffee.
