A hug in a mug. Coffee is for many of us a religious fluid and a necessity to sit back and take it easy.
Choose desired gear and ingredients. Coffee, wooden mug, Bialetti mocha maker, aeropress, boiled coffee, small spoon, coffeepot, time to sit.
I searched the web for boiled coffee and within 30 seconds i found this: “Old repeatedly boiled coffee with tannic acid is an abomination and anyone who serves it should be left alone in shame …”. When I’m out drinking coffee with people I usually just let the other one fix our coffee. With this said this following text is how I like my boiled coffee.
- Boil your water
- Add coffee, a pinch of salt and stir a little.
- 3 to 4 minutes later you remove the light foam with a spoon.
- Insert a small spruce branch into the spout before pouring. You get less coffee grounds in the mug and when you have a guest you get their attention to. An important factor is the length of the stream when the coffee is served. Long stream – good coffee! True story? 🙂
Some days this “recipe” is total rubbish. Then I add coffee thinking “better strong and black than the opposite”, boiling it up three times, pour out a small amount on the ground as “some for the nature” and add milk afterwards.
