The Economical Brew

coffeeCoffee has become a necessity to the everyday lives of those in modern society. I must admit that I take after my father by absolutely needing a coffee in the morning in order to function. Like shampoo, everyone has their preferred coffee brand. Some have Starbucks, others Dunkin Donuts, or the local staples like Emerald City and Metropolis Coffee Company. Sure, there are those fulfilling sentiments of buying a cup and sitting in-store, but I have found that it’s best to brew the pot yourself at home.

Like my father, I have grown to like Dunkin Donuts coffee, and while special flavors like coconut or pumpkin spice are a nice treat once in a while, I have my very own daily routine. I suppose I am one of the few who takes their coffee black and cold, thus I brew my pot the night before. Does the coffee taste as good? Honestly not, but the amount of pots I can brew from one six-dollar bag of Dunkin coffee grounds is obviously more reasonable. Also, I enjoy coffee like how one would enjoy tea, wine, or whiskey; I don’t like it too sweet, I want to savor the bitterness and unadulterated flavors. As for adding flavor, I’ll mix some ground pumpkin spice or cinnamon into the coffee grounds if I am craving it. I am not advising to swap your favorite coffee brands, but to buy their coffee beans or grounds and brew some yourself.
