1. Dump ground coffee in coffee pot.
Some of us do not have the pallet of a billy goat. Some of us think coffee is more than just a meduim for a caffeine injection. If you want a good hamburger, will you go to McDonalds or Five Guy burgers. Get the point Jack.
cptjeff, really, we're not making cocoa here. Sediment is easily avoided -- it's just as easy to grind it coarsely as finely. What does a Mr. Coffee cost? Nine dollars at Wal-Mart? A metal filter? Five dollars? No effort at all.
The 'coarse' or 'fine' bit doesn't bother me. It's the people who insist that coffee absolutely has to be fresh ground RIGHT before you make it, or put in some special contraption who's only advantage seems to be that the masses don't use it that bugs me.
Really, it's the larger attitude around coffee lately. Unlike many, I actually like the taste of the stuff. In many various forms. Yeah, some is better, true. But the whole pretension that often surrounds a rather simple drink really grates at me. The elements are simple: a bean with chemicals and hot water that leaches them out. And the way many people act, some methods of getting the chemicals out of the bean aren't good enough, and it seems, at least to me, that it's not all about the quality of the coffee so much as it is about proving how superior you are to those mainstream folk.
