The sudden loss of a friend, being a little bit under the weather and some computer issues put me behind on my Friday posts. I hope to catch up today with these three offerings: Coffee, Coffee Cake, Zucchini Fritters
All things coffee. Brewed Drip Coffee - check out the video.
Another passion of mine, is freshly ground and brewed coffee beans. I have an older model Capresso grind and brew that does just that: grinds & brews delicious coffee. It gives you options for the size of the grind, the number of cups to make (from 2 to 10), and the strength of the brew; mild, medium or bold. I've listed the newer version. Macy's online also has this model, and sometimes offers 10% off (as of today - Feb. 17th) 10% off of their price of $199 is offered).
If you only need a burr grinder, I recommend the Capresso Burr Grinder. It is a flat burr grinder, not a conical one(more expensive), but is a good entry level grinder. If you do a Google search you'll find info on the difference. Here is one link that has opinions: http://coffeegeek.com/forums/espresso/grinders/414615
My method of brewing in this drip coffee maker is to use very cold water. For 4 cups, fill the pot to 4 1/2 mark. If you don't have a grind and brew, measure out 1/4 cup coffee grinds. Save some trees and buy a gold cone filter, you can empty, wash and reuse. Amazon has several to chose from, here is one example:

Hope you give some of these recipes a try.
