More coffee. The high-end stuff.

After my last post, Old NFO sent me a pound in two packages of Kona coffee. I reiterate: NOT "Kona Blend", but 100% Kona.

I have been making it in the French Press, with filtered water. I have shared it with my family but little.

My wife tilted her head and squinted and asked "Why are people sending you coffee?" I smiled and told her that it was because I'm such a big deal, which made her roll her eyes. In truth, I don't know why I'm blessed to receive such blessings, and I know that I don't really deserve such friends and friendly gestures.

[Raised cup] Here is to you, Old NFO. Until the next time that we can share a pot of coffee on the range or at our friends' place.

Oooooo! Very nice. It's been a while since I got anything of that caliber.

Well? Is it as good as folks say?

Comrade, it is, when properly made. I made a pot last night that was the platonic ideal of what coffee should be: Rich. Flavorful. Nutty. Not at all bitter.

To bring out a perfect cuppa, use a French press, make your water about 190 degrees (not boiling!), and wait it out before serving.

I regret to report that it's worth it.
