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!
