Oh, boy, can I play, too?
Socks? Socks?? I don't need no stinking socks. ;>) Sorry, couldn't resist. I
just put the coffee into the pot, and let it boil for a few minutes. And, I use 1
tablespoon per 6 oz "Cup". I find that anything less makes the coffee kinda runny.
Don't forget to splash an ounce of "Purified" water on top when you think the coffee
is done. It breaks the surface tension and alows the grounds to settle to the
bottom of the pot. Also, at 1 tbs/cup of coffee, no bacteria or protozoa can
withstand the severe osmolarity. At least they die happy. Only kidding. 8>)
Ahh, midwatch coffee, the panacea of life!
