How to make Drip Coffee

Drip coffee seems to be a Japanese invention. My nephew Jack, who lives in Tokyo, keeps me supplied with consignments from time to time.

Remove the filter from the air-tight sachet (the green thing on the left). I have conditioned a reflex to make sure it is the right way up, or else the ground coffee ends up on the floor. Spread the filter using the tabs provided and seat the filter above the receptacle in the slots . Pour boiling water into the filter. I do this twice to increase the volume and to extract the last microgramme of caffeine.

While the filtration takes place, foam up some milk in a saucepan using a milk-frother supplied by Jack's mother (i.e. my sister, Lorenzo the Llama). Whisk until really stiff.

Pour the froth into the coffee. Sprinkle chocolate powder over the froth and drink

I think you need to harden up.... just drink cheap instant coffee.... no sugar no milk and thick enough to stand a spoon in

I've had Hobo coffee, but never coffee like this.

You mean that the coffee was from your nephew Jack and his charming wife!
Surprised you didn't show the photo of the bird-friendly coffee we got you!

Thanks everybody!

Jack, yes, of course, that is understood!

Badger, well, it sort of tasted like coffee, really. With a hint of chocolate.

Kiwi, never bored in England! I have to get ready for a well-earned holiday!

Nice. Nothing better than a good, fresh cup of coffee, I say. Though I have to say I just am not as fancy or sophisticated. Though it is fun to try the more expensive coffees.
