I actually make it very hot so that I can savor the taste for longer!!
Anyway, the merits and effects of Best ground coffee can keep me enthusing ad infinitum, so let me share with you one of the many uses of Best ground coffee. It happened purely by chance that I came across this use for ground coffee. We had managed to have a field mouse die in our car. Suffice it to say, we do not need to go into detail of how it got in, that in itself is a story of its own!
We tried to locate the mouse, to no avail. We sent the car in for a service. The mechanics stripped the car, pulled out the dashboard, seats etc. and $600 later, we were told that they could not locate this poor mouse. They spring cleaned, deodorized and said the car was ready to be picked up.
On opening the car doors, the stench was overpowering. We took to driving with all our car windows down, holding our breath and sticking our heads out every now and again, for a breath of fresh air.
We tried deodorizers, vinegar and the like to no avail. The mechanics told us, not to worry, as the smell would clear up in about. Six weeks! Anyway, a few days later, I was delivering some coffee beans to a customer. So I get to the car, open all the car windows and take a deep breath. The coffee beans were placed in the car.
So, I continue with the hold breath, stick head out of the window, take a deep breath and hold again technique. I happened to sneeze and expecting to be overcome by the stench, bracing myself, I smell coffee. Strong, smoky sweet aromatic coffee. What a pleasure. Well, I had a pleasant, in fact a joyous ride thereafter!!
When I got home, out came the coffee grinder, ground some of my favorite coffee, and placed them in zip lock bags and in the car. We have not had to hold our breath since! The effect of the best ground coffee was incredible. If we happened to take the bags out, the smell would be noticeable within a few minutes. The ground coffee was replaced and refreshed every ten days or so.
