I like to blame this on my epilepsy, but who knows? I make coffee using the coffee cone/drip method. I bought this little frame from Starbucks where you put the cone holder on top, put the filter in, fill with freshly ground coffee* and pour water through the grounds to the mug below.
I cannot tell you how many times I have set the cone thingie on the little frame, put the grounds in and poured the hot water into the cup that wasn’t there. I have wasted more coffee and paper towels than I care to recall.
I figured I had this sussed. I got rid of the frame and just used the cone thing directly on the mug. How could I mess that up? For a while, this worked very well. It was only recently that I hit the pinnacle of my coffee misadventures.
The hot water was ready and I poured it to the top of the cone. The coffee started to drip into the mug. It smelled heavenly. I did a couple of other things and was about to feed the cat. Did I put the cat food in the cat food dish? Noooo, I put it in the coffee grounds still dripping into my mug. It’s obvious that I need coffee before I make my coffee. The cat thinks so, too.
