Now, I like good coffee as much as the next guy. But the Rev. Sensing simply has more patience than I do when it comes to such things. I’m willing to grind it. I’m willing to scoop it. I’m willing to wait three to four minutes for the water to filter through the conical filter of my Krups machine. But that’s as far as I’ll go.

    I’ll grind my own too. Usually tastes a lot better, depending on the brand. Normally you get what you pay for, but he Folger’s 100% Columbian beans I get from Meijer’s (Michiganders will know this place) is as good as may of the specialty brands, including starbucks. I like stronger coffee than most folk.
