    I get 3 bags of coffee beans each month from Amazon. One month it's Rwandan and the next month Peruvian. It's on automatic delivery so I don't run short on coffee. I do fill in with Peet's when I'm running low. Major Dickinson Blend is my go to.

    ^ Dick and staple are not words one wants to see in the same sentence, usually.

    Because the coffee in it us usually stale, and ground long ago, it’s very difficult to get a good cup from a pod, IMO. I drank it anyway when it was all I had access to, but it never improved no matter what pods I bought. I went out for Starbucks as much as possible because it was close by, it was recently-ground, and they would do an actual pour-over using the beans of my choice. The price of a 20oz pour-over with fresh beans was just a couple of bucks (that “Starbucks coffee” is expensive is a myth) back then. It’s still cheap today.

    That coffee is my minimum benchmark. Yes, I can do much better at home, but even an average cup at ‘bucks is so much better that what was commonly available in the Sixties and Seventies in diners and cafes, I’m grateful for it.

    but we have a FP
    Flower Pot?
    Frying Pan?
    Ford Pinto?
    Fried Plantain?
    Feral Panda?

    I'm really bad at figuring out abbreviations and initialisms. What can I say? I'm a 20th century man and I don't want to be here.

    The one cup brew devices do something to make the water black.
    Oh. You got the Zappa model.

    Black water is my term for conference coffee.
    Plentiful and of questionable quality, but containing some caffeine.
    It will give you an excuse to get up out of your chair periodically and seek relief.

    Peetís my coffee of choice as well.
    I bought Breville semi-automatic coffee maker, discovered Peetís coffee and I did not touch Starbucks since.

    I've been in the USA too long. When someone says "semi-automatic" I picture a gun.
