Happy Sunday morning, Hart Beat! Sundays are one of my favorite days because they mean I can sit down, relax, catch up with Pedro, and drink a delicious cup of coffee. Yup, since last spring when I dabbled in the tea vs. coffee experiment I have stayed true to the winner of that battle. Although my dentist would like to sway me otherwise, coffee has won and I still drink a cup (or two🙉) a day. Since coffee is such a subtle but IMPORTANT part of my life, I thought I would share two things that have been making my perfect cup this week.
- Delicious coffee beans. While there are a few places in New York and Brooklyn that brew delicious coffee (looking at you 7 Grams and Gorilla Coffee), my most favorite ground coffee comes from No. Six Depot. Six Depot opened a few years in the Berkshires, one town over from where I grew up. The coffee is a) delicious and b) has the most beautiful packaging and names for each roast. Example, am drinking Heart of Darkness now. It is everything.
- This coffee scooper. Okay, this one doesn’t necessarily brew the best coffee but since buying it at the Food52 Holiday Market I’ve been obsessed. The little Black Walnut Wooden Coffee Scoop it the perfect size because you can keep it in your coffee grinds bag. Yup, that’s right. I keep it right in there so every morning when I go to make my coffee it’s sitting right there waiting. It is so pretty and sparks so much joy that it’s one of my most favorite tools in my kitchen.
Happy coffee drinking, Hart Beat!
