The Pain Of The Brew

If you know me, then you know that talking to me in the morning is not the smartest or most productive thing to do. My mother tries, but I have found that my exhaustion is a much more powerful entity than her.

I am just not a nice or functional person in the morning.

So with that in mind, it is time for the next installment in my mug series: The Perkatory mug.


I just got the mug this Christmas, but oh my, does it speak to me.

This past year, I have moved from an automatic brewer to an Aeropress for my morning cup of coffee, and it hasn’t been easy.  The Aeropress requires so much more care, patience, and mental presence for brewing, none of which I have in the morning, that I have unknowingly prolonged my morning perkatory.

In case you didn’t pick up on this, I am also not that smart in the morning.

That being said, the taste of my coffee is just so much better. The pain of the brew has proven to be worth it.

Oh, the sacrifices I make for quality.

And as if this mug wasn’t already perfect enough for my morning brew changes, it has also proven appropriate for my TV watching habits. I made the mistake of watching an episode of Supernatural this year, and now I am obsessed with the show. Of course, at the end of season seven, two of the main characters make a trip to where? Purgatory.

Coincidence, I think not.

Anyway, if you haven’t tried out the Aeropress or Supernatural, I suggest both.

I apologize ahead of time for any psychological scarring you may experience from introducing either into your life.
