This is the one I’m talking about. Clear glass all the way through.
So… you wait til it starts to boil and the water starts showing coffee color and then let it BOIL? for a “minute or two…” Which? One minute or two minutes? Sorry, I’m very literal-minded.
The reason I’m so careful with measuring and timing is that every once in a while you make a PERFECT pot of coffee… and if you haven’t measured and timed, YOU CAN NEVER DO IT AGAIN AND YOU SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIFE FUTILELY ATTEMPTING TO RECREATE THE PERFECT CONDITIONS, and you go crazy and drive everyone else in your household/office crazy, and you wind up unemployed, penniless, abandoned, and living in your car on the edge of town near the railroad tracks where night after night you listen to that lonesome whistle blow. Wishing to avoid that fate, I measure/time and when I find the right formula, I can do it again.
One time at the veterinarian’s office, the office manager gave me a delicious cup of coffee. Her formula: Use one HEAPING teaspoon (not a measuring teaspoon, but a regular teaspoon-teaspoon) of ground coffee for every TWO cups as marked on the coffee carafe. The “cups” on the carafe might be 4 or 6 oz cups. No matter. If you fill the carafe with water to the “8-cup” mark, pour it in the drip reservoir, and put 4 HEAPING teaspoons of ground coffee in the filter. I still use this formula for a drip pot. Works great.
