MMMMMMMM just brewed a cup of Starbucks French Roast coffee from my grind and brew system here at work. Added an nice splash of 1/2 and 1/2 and I now have a smile on my face. Nothing like that warm embrace of warm caffeine to make your morning start right. It also helps that a helpful engineer here at work put a small note on the machine to tell us how long each tic mark is and what the total brew time 47.8 seconds. Life is good!
