Confessions of an Idaho Coffee Addict
Personally, this must make me among the healthiest people in America! I drink an average of 3 strong cups a morning. When you consider my prodigious weekend consumption, the average may be closer to 5 cups over the course of a week.
I don’t use cream or sugar. I drink it the manly way. Which is plain or “black” as most of us say. I gave up sugar at least 30 years ago and the powdered creamers convinced me to become a straight drinker. A doctor had suggested many years ago the powdered variety wouldn’t be good for me.

After a couple of weeks without the additives, I discovered I liked it the manly way.
Over the years I’ve developed a habit of using drip brewing but when I bought a percolator I can put down over a flame… Now that’s coffee!
