I decided I would be fluid as to when, but that it would have to be on a morning when there was no rush, no hustle and bustle, an easy starting day. Well, I overslept and missed the opportunity to join the Sunday morning running group I sometimes run with. The time has just sprung forward. And, I can run when I want to. Today was the day, Carpe Diem! I made the coffee.
I had done a little research and discovered the recommended way to make the coffee requires a Syphon Brewer. You can buy yours here. I didn't. After doing a little research which amounted to watching some YouTube videos. I decided to use my French Press:

ValBeMar Kopi Luwak Kayumas is a full bodied coffee (almost syrupy) with a rich, heavy taste and hints of caramel or chocolate. Many describe the aroma as earthy, musty, and complex. - See more at: http://www.valbemar.com/our-coffees/kopi-luwak/#sthash.pCqHdpNq.dpufBetsy, my wife, had a dilemma. She normally doctors her coffee up with sweetener and creamer. But, adding something to this coffee seemed to be the equivalent of putting steak sauce on a steak. In Texas where I grew up, one only puts steak sauce on bad steak. The flavor should come from the meat. A little salt and pepper perhaps, but that's all. While Betsy liked the taste of the coffee, she was still impelled to "doctor" it up. She did. She liked it, but didn't find it superior to some coffees we brought home from Costa Rica during our vacation there last year.
So, there you have it. Very good. Too expensive. Get a good, less expensive Costa Rican coffee, but if you see a good deal, you too, should try it.
