    Lynna, I wonder how that would work in a french press. This way you could leave it before you press to as dark/rich as you wanted. Is there a place to just boil water at your work?

    I do have a French press, but I'm not sure I want to bring it to work. It's one of the pricier ones. We have a microwave. I haven't tried the French press yet, but my drip maker does a fine job. Another thing I've noticed is even when kept in a thermos, coffee flavor deteriorates, I haven't noticed that problem with the brewing cocoa.

    Cool. Looks like you'll be having cocoa at work. I don't blame you on the french press. I hadn't priced them in years and then one day I looked at some new ones and was shocked. I do love them for camping or extended stays from home.

    I used to bring my French press to work at my old job, making fresh coffee daily with it. The only reason why I don't do so at my current job is because they have a machine that grinds beans fresh for each cup it brews, so that's a total win for me! I do use my press at home on the weekends, when camping, and for making iced coffee at home.

Then start over again after the 3rd one.
    Yeah, I know, but I wanted the actual numerical score. Apparently that was a mistake!

    Put calamine on it. Won't do shit for the pain, but just think of the cala miners you're keeping employed.

    Today began abruptly at 6:57am LST (Leafblower Standard Time) and has already featured acrimonious encounters with a balky insurance adjuster, two Jehovah's Witnesses and a vomiting cat. FML.

    Oooh vomiting cats are always fun. Especially when they do it in the middle of the night and you step in it when you get up to go to the bathroom in the dark. Alas, my last kitty died 3 years ago and I haven't replaced her and probably won't as my asthma has gotten loads better without pets. However, she was very special and couldn't be replaced anyway, my little sweet, bitchy tortie.

    Today's gripe:

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
