The Daily Grind

I thought you might like to see how we make Cabin Coffee. It starts with this antique coffee grinder filled to the brim with rich coffee beans.

(A view of our kitchen area with the Hoosier as part of our cabin "remodel". Details coming soon!)

After 80 turns...

 the coffee is uniformly ground to this:

and percolated in my Mom's old Corningware Pecolator.

Who needs one of those grind-the-beans-brew-the coffee electricity hogs?

Comments:

Love that you use Mom’s percolator!  I bet the coffee is really flavorful.  What kind of beans do you use?

Question: Do you take turns grinding, or is that Rick’s job? (I would be sleeping in until the coffee is done!!!)

Bigsis, usually RIck grinds the coffee the night before, then all we have to do is turn on the burner. I’ve done it a number of times and it goes really fast!
