Japanese Coffee

You've all heard me go on about the coffee snob I try NOT to be. But sometimes I'm in a jam and need a cup. I can't always brew up 12 cups of coffee so I use these cute Japanese coffee packets.

Now the coffees in the packets are fine and all. It's just that the coffee isn't ground fresh. Here's a picture of the coffee filter, coffee, my thermal glass mug, and method of drip that the clever Japanese have come up with.

And here's the best part, you don't have to make an entire pot of coffee. You just hand your guest a packet and boil some hot water and let him loose. It's that simple.

The bad part is you can't get these clever one-cup brewing kits except IN Japan. Which could impact your budget for sure.

Whatever the cost, the coffee is good. It ain't Peets or Starbucks but it's very good. I end up squeezing the bag before dumping it into the trash, atempting to get every last bit of oil from the bag.

It makes a great substitute.

Without my morning coffee I'm just like a dried up piece of roast goat. -Johann Sebastian Bach
