I’m still going through, cleaning my archives. I’ve gone through 2014, 2015, 2016 and am on March 2017. I’ll share some thoughts once I’m done, but my best advice for now is…Don’t wait six years.
I took this meme out of an archived post to share with you. I went through a phase of using way to many memes in my posts. 😍
This morning called for a strong Chemex.
To have the Chemex, I had to tackle something new. Their square filter. I only have one regular filter left, but there’s an entire box of the square ones in the pantry. Why you might ask?
Because I never figured out how to use them.
This goes back to the whole ‘follow the instructions‘ thing. YouTube to the rescue.
The original Chemex filter is folded into a square. I always thought you had to unfold it to make it work. Now, there are some baristas who get really fancy with it, and refold it, but the Chemex is such a simple process, I knew this filter had to be simple as well.
It’s ridiculously simple.
You don’t unfold it at all. You simply separate the layers. Three layers on the spout, and one lays on the rest of the opening.
I’m not sure why I thought it was going to be difficult.
Maybe it’s like a lot of things in life. You don’t know until you know, but when we know better, we get to do better.
