Measuring Coffee

Accurate measurements are important, right?  We're supposed to measure the coffee with a proper tablespoon or teaspoon, right?

One day, they were all dirty.  I grabbed a cereal spoon and used it to measure the coffee grounds. 

I was inexplicably happy about that.

Then I realized: Dad always used the cereal spoon.  He never used measuring spoons for the coffee grounds.  Ever since, I've been using the cereal spoon and feeling warm fuzzies over it. 


  1. I use a scale. Digital scales are more accurate, don't dirty any spoons, and are great for all kinds of foods.

  2. But does measuring with a scale make you smile in fond remembrance of someone? Right now that's the important part to me. :)
