Turkey Tracks: The Best Cup of Coffee Ever!

The Best Cup of Coffee Ever!


I don’t drink coffee in the morning.  I’m mostly a tea drinker.

But, I love a good cup of coffee after lunch or dinner–as a special treat.  And, bad as they are for you–bad, dead milk and too much sugar–I am almost always tempted by lattes.  Vanilla lattes.  Mocha lattes with real whipped cream.  Fortunately, actually getting one happens only when I travel or off and on in the winter.

So, when I was recently in Virginia, my niece Meg Challand, made me a cup of after-dinner coffee using a cone-shaped porcelain drip affair with a filter inside.

Oh my!  It was the best cup of coffee I’ve every had in my life.  Smooth and sweet–with no bitter taste at all.

So, guess what sister Susan sent me yesterday for my birthday???



I have just enjoyed the BEST cup of coffee since the one Meg made me.

And mine has local, raw unheated honey and local, thick, gorgeous raw cream from Jersey cows–which is full of good fat and lots of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, K) crucial for health.

I am spoiled beyond belief!

PS:  You do NOT want one of the cheap plastic drippers as plastic off-gases chemicals.  And there is something called a “pour over” stand that allows you to see how much coffee has dripped into your cup.  Online, the ones I found are incomprehensibly expensive given that they are just a few pieces of wood or a pre-formed plastic.  So, I’ll look locally in our kitchen stores for something.  Or ask a local carpenter to make me one…
