How to Make World Class Coffee in 7 Steps

coffee

Making coffee is an art and I’ve experimented with making coffee for a long time. I’ve tried 20 different brands and experimenting with various filters, coffee makers, ingredients, beans, grains, water, you name it.

Along the way I found that putting in the effort to make good coffee, is worth it and here’s why:

If you’re going to buy good coffee then make good use of it!

 

Good organic coffee is comparatively more costly than Chemical Dogshit Wal-Mart Coffee and considerably better tasting and healthier.

So why not take the time to look at what goes into making your coffee and get the highest value possible?

You with me? Good!

The formula I’m about to give you is from a long time of perfecting my coffee and its almost too good to share. But since you are a wheeler, dealer, and full-time killer, I’ll share it anyway.

THE BEST COFFEE ON EARTH: INGREDIENTS

YOU WILL NEED
– a 12 cup coffee maker (I use Mr. Coffee)
– 1 pack of Nature Brew Coffee filters
– a Gallon of distilled water
– 1 Alkazone Electrolye Mineral Supplement
– RED COFFEE
– a 1-Tablespoon measure
– a 40 oz Thermos from Bass Pro Shop or Amazon

INGREDIENT BREAK-DOWN

“WTF MARCUS, MAKING COFFEE IS EASY! Why make it so hard?”

Making “okay” coffee is brain-dead fucking easy, absolutely perfect coffee requires effort to make. Here’s an explanation of each ingredient:

Coffee Maker: You need this, hopefully this needs no explanation. You don’t need to waste money on the fancy stuff. Just buy a 12-cup Mr. Coffee and call it a day. Any department store has one.

Nature Brew Coffee Filters: Think about it, your coffee has to pass through the filter to get into the pot. This affects not only the taste but the content of what going into your coffee. White coffee filters have chemicals in them, thats why the color is a perfect and unnatural bleach-white. DON’T DRINK CHEMICALS! You can buy these at a grocery store.

Distilled Water: Its water in its purest possible form and you can buy a gallon for 99 cents at any department store (I distill my own). This affects the taste and character of your coffee more than any other factor other than the coffee grains themselves. The worst thing you could ever do is make your coffee with municipal tap water:

Coffee. Water comparison

Tap water on the left and distilled water on the right

Massive difference right? The tap water is “hard” water, full of calcium from Lake Michigan. It also has a bevy of medications, chlorine, and other bullshit. Distilled water all the while is beautiful, pure and clean as you can see.
Alkazone Electrolye Mineral Supplement: This factors in very slightly for taste but its really for overall health. Distilled water lacks, minerals you would normally get from bottled or tap water like magnesium and you will need to add them back in when you consume distilled water.

Red Coffee: The best and freshest coffee I’ve ever had. Red Coffee beans are ground up and sealed the moment they fall from the tree. Clean air, clean soil, clean process, no chemicals, no additives, no preservatives and you can TASTE IT!

Tablespoon Measure: 5 table spoons will make 12 cups of caffeinated perfection.

Thermos: We do not EVER want to burn our precious coffee! That’s why we take it off the burner, outta the pot, and put it in the Thermos so it stays fuckin’ hot!

The Exact Method To Make Perfect Coffee

1. Add 5 tablespoons of RED into your nature brew filter
2. Add 24 drops of Alkazone to your gallon of distilled water
3. Pour 12 cups of said water into the coffee maker
4. Start the brew cycle
5. Be ready to pour turn off the coffee maker as soon as its down brewing
6. Pour the hot coffee into your Thermos (fits 8 cups)
7. Wait 10-15 minutes for the cup of coffee to settle and cool if you like and enjoy a cup of the worlds finest coffee.

FINAL RESULTS: What your Coffee will look like…

Epilogue

 

Writing this article was a blast, I hope you enjoy it too. Once you wrap your head around how to make good coffee, you’ll never want your coffee any other way. You can make coffee infinitely better than Starbucks at a much cheaper price.

The only coffee that comes close to this is the French Coffee in the French Quarter of New Orleans at Cafe Du Monde. (a world famous cafe by the way)

Enjoy your Coffee!

Sincerely,
Marcus Harris

P.S. I only ever drink my coffee black and I’m totally clueless about sugar, creamers and all that shit. Let me know in the comments how you like your coffee.

Ode to the Visionary

BBQ

You are born to see.

To see that which cannot be seen.

Life obscures obvious answers and makes them appear invisible. Your job is to see that what can’t be seen.

How can you see the invisible?

When you have a vision no one else can see then you are a visionary because only you can see your vision. Your vision belongs to you and so why bother convincing other people of your vision?

They will never see what you see when you see it. They see it in their own time when they are ready.

Your vision is your Mona Lisa, your magnum opus, the thing that defines your true character.

In ThunderCats Lion-O asks the Sword of Omens to give him “Sight Beyond Sight” so he can see what’s beyond.

Moses was given a vision by God and was told to write his vision and make it plain upon tables. So that the masses could read it fluently.

Buddha, John Smith Jesus, Zoroaster all had incredible visions. Each founded an entire religion and created a following from a vision.

You see your true vision is the only thing that matters. You only die spiritually when you fail to execute the vision and the mission that the Gods set out for you.

Your vision has only one cost: Your Soul

Your vision does not need a piece of you. It needs ALL OF YOU. It demands your absolute and total obsession. It demands you do the work. It demands…

GREATNESS

 

Greatness is the stuff legends are made of.

Greatness is forged with iron-clad discipline and ruthless determination.

Greatness is the vehicle you must ride in order to become your true character.

Every great man and woman is a VISIONARY. The light in the eyes is how you can tell someone who was a vision from someone who doesn’t.

Their eyes sparkle with joy, beauty and wonderment because they can see that which cannot be seen. They paint pictures with their minds eye and understand the beauty of the invisible.

“But why do I need to see invisible stuff?”

Most of your mind works unconsciously, if you fail to understand that you have a vision in your mind’s eye then someone will give you THEIR vision to see.

You will die spiritually and physical death will soon follow.

How do you prevent this? By becoming truly GREAT!

ACHIEVE THE GREATNESS YOUR VISION DEMANDS!

ONLY look at the great, and ONLY emulate the great.

If you want to great at something then find other men who are great at that  something and do what they do.

Eventually you will master a skill and create your own art from your own VISION.

YOU HAVE A =FIRE= IN YOU

Everyone is born with a fire in the gut that propels them to their vision. When they listen to that fire it gives them everything they desire.

When its ignored, it consumes and fucking destroys them.

You read this because you have an all consuming fire for your vision.

FIRE is a manifestation of the spiritual inheritance of men. Fire keeps us warm, cooks our food, builds buildings, sustains life (the Sun), and brings death.

You were given fire as part of your spiritual destiny. The fire is what makes you a man distinct from animals. Don’t ever take it for granted.

When its gone, you die and the gods curse you for all time.

Fire fuels your vision which propels you to Destiny.

Destiny can bring plenty or pestilence depending on the results of harvesting your fire with the scythe that is your vision.

What will your harvest be?

 

Sincerely,

Marcus Harris

The first Bold And Determined Barbecue was a killer event.

Too often when you’re a cold-hard killer, you get a sense that you are a lone wolf in a sea of sheep.

Death of a Friend

I’m not going to go into cliches about death. You’ve heard them all:

“Everybody’s gotta die sometime” ~ The Rev, Avenged Sevenfold

2 1/2 years ago, a friend and mentor I had in the Navy died suddenly.

He had just recovered from a near-fatal motorcycle accident and then he was gone. His wife was pregnant with his son.
