I’ve a pretty good routine for this: Grind coffee; while it buzzes I put water in the pot; I then add the coffee and put the pot on the stove;Â while it heats I prepare the cups; and pour when it bubbles.
It takes a while to boil and bubble up. I guess I usually look at my phone or read the paper, standing still that day i note that my attention is racing and I can hardlyÂ stand still, I shiftÂ from foot to foot to ‘keep busy’!
