It is a caffeine world, and I’m just drinking it up

So, I figure that I’ve been drinking coffee for some 40+ years. There was a time when I would brew and drink a full 12-cup pot every day. Eventually I realized that was just a tad to much caffeine, so I cut it back to just two cups. These days I’m hovering around 3–5 cups, plus the occasional caffeinated frappuccino cold drink thrown in for good measure.

All these years I’ve been using white coffee filters. Recently I became aware of “natural” brown coffee filters. It was then that it suddenly occurred to me that white coffee filters are white because they are bleached to get them that way.

Yeah, that’s right, Bleach.

The same thing I use to wash my white clothes, and when I accidentally spilled it on one of my black shirts it took the color out of it. The same thing I sometimes use as a cleaning agent to kill germs and — were I to actually attempt to drink a cup full of it — would certainly kill me.

You just gotta know that’t gotta be a totally bad idea.

Why then am I using coffee filters washed in this toxin to drink my favored beverage (OK, 2nd beverage: nee Beer). So, we’re totally done with that nonsense, and now moving forward, I will only use brown coffee filters to make my coffee.


(yea I knoww the coffee pot is dirty, I’m cleaning it, OK?)
