    Morning Coffee and a Pipe

    One opinion. What about when the coffee's crap? Or great coffee too long on the hot plate? Milk and sugar save the day. I drank only black coffee for almost 50 years. Now I make my own cappucinni, and it's as good as from a fine coffee shop. Still enjoy a great black coffee when I'm away...

    What to Use...

    In my meanderings, I have tested and tested: Water on the stem brings out existing oxidation, and doesn't cause it. (From tepid to very hot water.)

    Drying tobacco in the Islands is a real chore! Whatever works for you, though.
