How To: Make a Proper Pot of Coffee

Uploaded by Nategrey on Jan 26, 2005

Let me just say that I am addicted to coffee. I’ve got to have my daily fix at least several times a day; when I wake up, around lunch, before I go to work. Truth be told, If coffee were booze, I’m pretty sure I’d be a drunk. I don’t know what you might think, but just any coffee isn’t good coffee.

Wipe it out afterward with a paper towel and then bring it back to the counter. Take a paper coffee filter from the pack, and place it in the basket. I like to use the brown non-bleached kind.
