I had this one job where we would brew a pot of coffee at around 3PM each afternoon. A big pot of some sort of “bold” blend -twelve cups at least, in a drip coffeemaker.
If I was in the office, I always jumped at the chance to make the coffee. Because I would not only make it strong, I would wait until the first cup had dripped into the pot and pour it off for me. Then I’d add lots of milk. Best coffee I ever had.
