Not only am I in the midst of an intense work project and prepping for a couple of big events taking place at our house in December, but now that the dust has settled after Bryan’s surgery and we're firmly in the midst of recovery, I’m realizing how all of the above has conspired to make me awfully tired (earth shatteringly, mind-numbing, insanely tired actually.) Not to mention the fact that I’m altogether lacking in any sort of inspiration what. so. ever.

I’m daunted by the precision of the steps required to brew a cup though. How hard is this? Does anyone regularly use one of these??
