A poor start to the day.

I have smashed the coffee press-before I managed to have coffee. This days suck already.

Oh deary me. And you don't have a backup? An old one you never managed to throw out that's sitting at the back of a cupboard somewhere?

I'd be devastated, I'd be.

Do you have a sieve?

I've git bloody nothing. I had to have tea. And tea, I think we can all agree, is no substitute for coffee in the morning.

I much prefer tea over coffee at any stage of the day.

But I am a contrary bastard by anyone's standards.

Blogger fatmammycat said...

I drink tea the rest of the day, but for first thing in the morning I need a cup/enormous mug of real coffee.
I know a chap who drinks neither. I find that odd.

Never got the taste for coffee myself in anything other than cake. Mmmm, coffee cake...
I'm all about nambarrie or punjana tea 1st thing in the morning.

A sieve, as am has already suggested... failing that bring water to the boil in a small pot, take off the boil, scoop in the coffee and stir vigorously, cover and let stand for 3mins. Gingerly pour into large mug (most grounds will stay at the bottom of the pot). If you have 'issues' with grounds you can add a further step - line a collander with kitchen paper / tissue and use as a strainer.

Us coffee users have to have a back up plan.

I like coffee, but I find it leaves an unpleasant aftertaste and some sort of residue.

I mentioned this to a work colleague and he looked at me as if I was mad.

Does anyone else get this?

10:55 a.m.  
Blogger fatmammycat said...

No to the after taste but if I drink too much of it it can makes me feel ill. Ill and jittery.
Conan, I never even thought of the bloody using the collander, I just cursed and reached for the Lyons. NEVER Barrys tea, yack.
Sheepie -coffee cake? Really? I always though it was a queer mix, cake and coffee.

Choclatey creamy coffee cakey goodness FMC - you're missing out!

I have tea in the morning but never coffee. I have coffee later in the day. Also, I am not a morning person. Commiserations on the lack of coffee. You could try to strain it through a freshly washed or never-before-used sock with a particularly high thread count?

Sorry.

Over here, there's a Dunkin' Donuts around every corner, so you can nip out in your sweats and get a cuppa without too much fuss. It's damn good coffee too...

I suppose there's no little coffee shop or anything nearby?

Tea is awful - boiled water with a twig in it. I can only drink it when I'm sick and can't taste anything anyway.

12:39 p.m.  
Blogger fatmammycat said...

Honestly straining- of any variety -didn't occur to me.
Teas is a lovely drink- apart from green tea which is vile and peppermint tea which ought to join psychics on the pile of most useless disgusting gunks.
But plain old breakfast tea is delicious, in fact I'm having a cup right now. But not with sugar, that's truly mingingAnd people never give it enough time to 'draw' properly.
Sorry Andraste, the local coffee shop is a bit of a trundle away. otherwise that would have been my next port of call after my kitchen.

Teas is very good for you too, you should drink about 8-10 cups of it a day. Or so I'm told.

Well that's good to know! Probably the only thing I love that is not likely to do me much harm. I actually love Green Tea as well if it's made properly. Very good for you but madly expensive in this country for some other fuckin bizzare reason.

I've done the collander method back when I was a big coffee drinker. Now I'm mostly tea with the occassional cappucino from a cafe. My husband freakishly drinks only peppermint tea and refrains entirely from caffeine.

excuse the language, having a bad day too, for other reasons unrelated.

Blogger fatmammycat said...

But..but Medbh, it's totally and utterly VILE!

Cate, you never have to apologise for bad language on this site, why I'm practically a sailor when it comes to profanity. And green teas is extremely good for you, so if oyu can tolerate it drink up!

Blogger morgor said...

not a fan of green tea, but peppermint is nice enough, if a little bland.

and tea needs a little sugar.

You're an abomination FMC.

I had to get used to drinking tea when I lived in your neck of the woods for a few months since I was too cheap to buy a press. I tried those Tesco one-serving thingies, but felt bad about tossing out so much plastic for a the pleasure of my regular morning beverage. I figured if plenty of people drank tea in the morning, I could too. When in Rome.

I switch between the two now, based on whether Spouse has left me any coffee in the pot. And unfortunately, our grocery only has Barry's for Irish tea, so I usually get the PG Tips. Remind me to bring back a box of Lyon's on my next trip.

I do recall the difficulty of going without that lovely first cup of coffee of the morning, though...you are in my prayers.

Thanks Honey, and if you ever do actually need Lyons- and everyone should, PM me an address and I will send them IMMEDIATELY.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
