Sometimes, the coffee pot is on TOO LONG! Somebody up here, leaves about 2 tablespoons of coffee in the pot, and when I get in, there’s, burnt, cooked coffee stuck in the pot. Why not just pour those 2 tablespoons into the cup, instead of leaving it there in the bottom of the pot to… COOK to a hard finish??!! And, burnt coffee in the pot, smells NASTY! It happens at least once a week. When I get in here, I get the scrubber out, along with some dish soap, and SCRUB the burnt coffee from the bottom of the pot. When I’m done with my daily coffee intake, I turn off the burner, rinse out the pot and then fill the pot with water, before putting it back in the burner area. Oh well. If that’s all that I have to bitch about, then I suppose that I’m in a good place (in my life), huh? Actually, in the photo, I’m doing my “shop prep” (preparing for my radio show). That’s it. That’s kind of all that I do to prepare. Pour a few cups of coffee from the pot. After I’ve had a few cups,, I head to the control room with a full cup, and I’m ready to ROCK! Rock ya’ while ya’ work. Like I’ve done here almost 35 years. I think that I used the word “pot” too many times in this blog? Whatcha think? Maybe, I should have used the word “carafe”, but that’s not what it is. It’s a coffee pot. Am I right, or am I right?
