Warm Day

Very warm today in Astoria while enjoying waffle and coffee.

Spoiled USers

Many of today’s papers may have included a story such as this one from the San Francisco Chronicle. Spike in gas prices ignites election-year furor  http://bit.ly/yLbKOE Oh, no! Four dollars or more for a gallon of petrol! Wake up America*! The average price of petrol in Europe is six dollars or more. We complain about the price of gasoline but will spend that much or more for a cup of coffee and then fight over a $220 pair of sneakers. Our priorities suck, no thanks to the encouragement of our political parties, their misinformed constituents and our anatomic disarray. We need to remove our collective head from our collective bum or suffer the consequences. Perhaps we should begin wearing Roman sandals. We are called USers for a reason.

*The political entity situated between Canada and Mexico

 

 

 

Inside Scoop SF » On Earth Day, Rethinking the Paper Coffee Cup

Media_httpinsidescoop_hhacu

And what about all those single cup, e.g. K-Cup, plastic cups? Luckily the industry is looking into a more environmentally responsible single brew container. We use a single cup brewer but use the optional wire basket that allows us to use the ground coffee of our choice. And it is also much easier to recycle the grounds. To show good faith in their statement of becoming environmentally friendly in the future, the single brew machine manufacturers should supply the over priced brewing basket free with all new coffee makers and to present owners. Brewing one cup of coffee, or tea for that matter, is a waste of energy. So even with a recyclable “K-Cup” or the screen basket, the single brew machine should be recycled and replaced with a French press or other more efficient coffee maker. And something else to consider, is bisphenol A present in the tubing of single brew coffee makers? How far will you go to help make Earth Day count?

Coffee Shops Serving Oatmeal, Hmmm…

Heard on NPR this morning that coffee shops have begun serving oatmeal. It’s a big money maker. (Oatmeal Is Hot In Chilly Economy : NPR)

Don’t know if they would make any money with my 12 item oatmeal spread…

Oatmeal
Milk
Brown Sugar
Cinnamon
Ground Flax Seed
Peanuts
Sunflower Seeds
Walnuts
Almonds
Dried Fruit

Cup of Joe anyone?.
