Let's Have Another Cup of Coffee

This morning included Maine Whoopie Pie coffee

I've been somewhat remiss in my coffee postings. But this morning was a genuine fall morning. The  morning temperature was 39 degrees, a big change from a high of 70 on Halloween. During my trip to Maine I'd bought a bag of coffee produced by one of my favorite coffee roasters, Katahdin Coffee Co. I've never tried one of their flavored coffees and I was intrigued by Maine Whoopie Pie. Despite the name it's not sweet, but has a very nice chocolate accent. It was definitely a good choice.
Katahdin Coffee Co. is named for Mount Katahdin. the highest mountain in Maine. It's not the Rockies -- our peaks in the East are smaller -- but it's still 5,200 feet. It's the Northern Terminus of the Appalachian Trail and 200+ miles north of Portland. I'm still editing my Maine pictures. Yes, I'm slow and really need to get going before I start snapping away at all the lights and decorations in Manhattan coming up. But this photograph of Portland harbor is one of my favorites and I hope you enjoy it, too.

Before we leave the topic of coffee for this month, I'm also displaying my coffee brewing method of choice, the Melitta pour-over coffee system. I've tried other methods, including a Keurig during my working days, and I returned to my Melitta cone and filters. I don't always grind my coffee daily -- or even weekly -- but for just one person or two this gives me a great cup of coffee. What's your favorite way to make coffee?

We had a gorgeous autumn day for New York City Marathon Sunday and I've got a few pictures to share in a post tomorrow. My schedule for tomorrow is laundry, water aerobics, walking and a blog post. Sounds great to me! What are your plans?

As ever, thanks for visiting and have a great week! California friends, stay safe!

The picture of the harbor is beautiful. Whoopie Pie coffee, I would love to try that! It sounds yummy. We tried the pour over method, but are now using a Keurig. The pour over seemed to cool down too much in the time it took it to drip. I can't wait to see the rest of your pictures!

I am not a coffee drinker, but I am a coffee smeller. I love the aroma and the good feeling it gives me as it reminds me of my parents and waking up in the morning years ago with that whiff of coffee in our home

Sounds like a wonderful cup of coffee to me and I'm sure it brings back memories of your trip to Maine. Hot coffee is especially good on a chilly fall morning. second only to a hot cup on a winter morning.

My oldest son is a coffee connoisseur! He travels some for business all over the world and has so many fancy roasting systems for making coffee!
I, myself, drink gourmet flavored coffees - with cream no sugar. I'm a light weight!

Well, you sent me down a rabbit hole this afternoon. I've just read the pros and cons of pour over vs drip. I have never tried a pour over coffee. We have an old drip coffee maker--because it's the one that fits under my kitchen cabinet. I won't know if pour over is better until I try it. But it would have to be easier to clean. That might be enough to make me buy one. I'll let you know how far down this "pour over" hole I actually go!

That coffee sounds wonderful! I'm a coffee fanatic. Your picture of the harbor is gorgeous. I visited Portland a long time ago and loved it. I've never been to NY though.

I missed this one as we were in Ohio visiting my other grandson. I swore off the computer and spent all my time with him.

I love coffee too!

Love, sandie
