After bringing in my coffee making materials, I quickly found that other people wanted coffee too! Gathering around our makeshift coffee kitchen, I waxed eloquent about the benefits of black coffee, the flavor of freshly brewed joe, and the monetary savings from making your own. After brewing three cups, one for myself naturally, my two companions seemed quite content and impressed by the results.
+1 for specialty coffee and -1 for Starbucks.
Next, I will need to train people on making coffee with a pour over, so I am not the only person who will be able to do so. While my system isn't the easiest, it certainly is fun and a nice distraction from studying and writing. And besides, what would academia be without coffee?
