morning coffee

As much as I love drinking tea and coffee, I love the process of brewing just as much.  To me, it’s as equally satisfying as the warm drink itself.

And the Chemex fits in so well.  The best coffee I’ve had – in fact, I prefer it to the French Press since I don’t have to deal with the leftover grinds.  The only catch is that I have to drink my coffee as soon as I brew, it doesn’t keep the coffee warm for long.

Heating the water in a kettle, selecting my favorite cup, writing down my thoughts — I savor these moments….

    I have never made my own coffee at home…sad, huh? Your photos make it look so relaxing. I guess it goes along with quiet moments like writing and reading. It’s like yoga with food. :)ReplyCancel

    I know so very little about coffee, the only kind I’ve had at home is instant. I love the earthy look of the photos.ReplyCancel

    Lovely shots! I keep hearing about this coffee maker. I have to check it out! Maybe it needs a little knitted cozy to keep your coffee warm, lol.ReplyCancel
