Perc vrs. Drip

I am a year round coffee drinker. I can not stand the taste of most sodas and other soft drinks. The only one I do enjoy is Sun Drop which is, I'll say, the same color as Mt. Dew but with a far better taste. Sadly it is not sold in West Virginia. As their ads say, "It'a a Carolina thing".

Back to coffee
What about instant??
I keep a small jar of Sanka instant coffee on hand to enjoy once in awhile.

I think that perking good coffee is an art that many of us younger people can not get a handle on. Let alone master like our older Parents and especialy our Grand parents have.

When I was young I'd go into the woods with my father and uncles to cut and log timber. Usually, we were well back into the mountains. So, about 45 minutes before lunch time, Spencer, one of the crew, would build a fire and fry bacon and potatoes and make a huge pot of camp coffee. This with heated canned green beans and some reheated corn bread made a meal fit for a king.

Over the years I've eaten at truck stops and diner, Fancy resturants and hot dog stands. But, no where have I found food or coffee that tasted better than what old Spence served up.....gfp
