Waiter. Waiter. Percolator.
I love coffee. I love tea.
I love the java jive and it loves me.

Due to the demise of my 20 year old Mr. Coffee, I used my old fashioned percolator coffee pot for the last two days. I had to dig around under the cabinets to find it, and because I grind my coffee so finely, I had to rig a paper filter for the basket, but after a little improvisation, I had a workable solution.
The coffee was really good.
Really. It was much better than I have had in a long time.
As I shopped for a new coffee maker, my search changed from only drip makers to include percolators of various kinds. After spending over an hour on Amazon reading various reviews and looking at the multitude of coffee makers available to the world today, I finally settled on a pot.
And now I sit over the holiday weekend awaiting the delivery man coming on Tuesday. I ended up selecting a percolator type pot instead of the drip coffee and after the coffee I have had the last two days, I am very much looking forward to my Wednesday morning coffee.
