Good coffee made weak can still be enjoyed diner style.
My wife is traveling. She left me half a cones' worth of excellent reserve which I meant to brew with half the usual water. But habit prevailed. A full pot made weak coffee. I thought I'd wasted the last of some excellent beans.
I'm use to sipping good coffee made strong.
My weak coffee sat and cooled.
I slugged down half a cup still warm. Refilled. Waited. And then drank more, just like in a diner.
This is my "americano". Good coffee made weak and gulped without further thought. On with my day.
See Hello Echo for a look at my Mochamaster 3000. I should have asked Echo to set a timer for three minutes. Then I could have turned of the coffee maker and enjoyed strong coffee.
