When I was younger, I couldn't stand the smell or taste of coffee.
As I've gotten older, I realize the reason I couldn't stand coffee was the type of coffee my mom would buy. CHEAP!!!!!!
I haven't turned into quite the coffee snob my daughter is (if it's not Starbucks-she's not drinking it).
The old fashioned perk, drip, french press and now I'm using a Bialetti Moka Express Stovetop Espresso Maker.
I even have my own little coffee maker for camping. A perk coffee pot that works on the campfire, our little Coleman gas stove or in the 5th wheel.
It doesn't matter how I make my coffee.....as long as I have some decent coffee to begin with!!!
