My morning coffee had a certain je ne sais quoi this morning.

At first I thought it was due to trying a new boutique blend from the farmer's market, Café Palmira's Vienna roast. That's a gourmet specialty coffee grown on the Palacios family farm in Palmira, Huehuetenango, and sold at the local farmer's market by Mr. Carlos Palacios himself. I tried a sample yesterday and it was delicious!

This morning's coffee was also delicious, but somehow different... My water versus his, I wondered? Brewed in a different machine? Half and half instead of milk? Hmmm...

And then after breakfast I went to clean the coffee maker and found...

Well, if the Norwegians can add eggs to their coffee to improve the flavor, then why can't I add "silver" scoops?!

The catch 22 of coffee -- you need it in order to be alert enough to make it! That's my story and I'm sticking to it! laugh [COLOR=#F4F4FF]

Hmmm... I'm not a chemist (but I play one on TV), but it should be non-reactive, right?

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

I sometimes wonder if I should have a cup of coffee before I make my coffee for the day, otherwise stuff like this may happen.

The only thing better than this thread right now is the thought process that went in to it.

Wow. I can't believe I did that. I feel like an idiot. Now I have to take pictures of it and post about it in Chit Chat!

I guess I better not mention that this is actually my second time messing up my coffee in this same manner. shake

The first time it was embarrassing, the second time it's hilarious!

When I emailed Paul to tell him what happened, he wrote back...

I hope that spoon isn't made in China, otherwise you may get lead poisoning! On the other hand, 4 out of 5 doctors prefer coffee brwed with spoons for their patients who brew coffee. Go figure.

At least you didn't have egg in there as well - because eggs eaten with silver just tastes... yucky... (and, yes, I grew up eating eggs with silverware *haw-haw* meeple )
