Tom Moertel: A Coder's Guide to Coffee: "Although coffee is commonly considered a utility beverage, it is an amazing drink when well prepared. Given its ubiquity in software and creative circles, it's likely that you will be drinking a lot of it. So why not prepare it as it was meant to be? Why not enjoy a truly good cup of coffee? If you buy fresh, high-quality beans, grind them on the spot, and brew with hot water, you can't go wrong."

I do not drink much coffee. I can't stand the bitter brew that's commonly made, so I never really got into it. These days, though, I am starting to appreciate a good cup on the weekend. Jenny and I have been enjoying the fruits of a nice french press we got for our wedding (thanks!). I'm trying to get my hands on a Zassenhaus grinder, but it's proving difficult.
