|An old email I sent to my mother about my father’s faux pas of recycling coffee grounds, copy and pasted for your amusement:
Subject: This coffee sucks. So what is the one thing most people can count on first thing in the morning? That first cup of coffee to mentally prepare themselves for ‘the real world.’ Not too many ways you can mess up coffee, right? Well whatever I am drinking right now tastes like water artificially colored with previously used coffee grounds. There is no way dad is getting anything out of this besides a placebo effect, but what do I know? I cant believe I have a father who recycles coffee grounds. There should be a law against this.
