How to Actually Make Coffee The Old Fashioned Way
Gizmodo has been featuring an in-house gadgeteer to basically test out different methods to cook most things. One such feature recently is the "How to Actually Make Coffee" - which we found both insightful and amusing. What's odd is how they leave out making coffee the right way - the single serve coffee way. We do agree on one thing - the basic elements, no matter what voodoo you're invoking to make coffee: beans, roast, grind, dose, water, temperature and brew time are the "WHY" you might have a great cup or awful cup of any coffee regardless of the method.

The Chemex coffee maker in the picture is my absolute favorite way to make coffee. I remember the first time I tried it I was visiting a friend in Seattle. He and his girlfriend made coffee using the Chemex and I was absolutely blown away with the flavor! I have one, but since I am the only one in my family that drinks coffee I use a K Cup.
Old-fashioned coffee: The REAL old-fashioned way is this: Get an old-fashioned coffee pot of enameled steel, put in 5 cups cold water (from your favorite High Sierra trout stream), add 6 heaped tablespoons coffee (pick your brand), bring to a boil over the campfire, move pot to where coffee continues to boil gently 5 minutes, take off fire, add another cup cold water to settle the grounds. Fry bacon & trout & chopped potatoes + onions; & sip the brew.
