Pirate Makes The Coffee: A Tutorial

This post contains affiliate links.

This post may contain affiliate links. Disclosure at the bottom.

I don't know if you could tell by the name of my blog, but I love coffee. Regular coffee, iced coffee, Cuban coffee, gas station coffee. There is no wrong answer. 

Really, my entire household is pretty hooked on the caffeinated beverage. Well, not quite everyone. Not Tootsie Roll, but give her time. She's only one.


We have had a very cold and rainy week. So when Pirate and I were trying to get warmed up yesterday, we pulled out one of our favorite little coffee makers: Melitta Pour-Over Coffee Brewer


{Click here to see this on Amazon!}
$5.85 + shipping

Oh how we love this little guy! We bought this about 5 years ago and makes a delicious cup of coffee. We think it's even better than the drip-coffee some days. I was running low on coffee the other day, so I made sure to use the Melitta to better "budget" my coffee to save some for later. Because Mama needs her coffee. 

I'll say it again, Mama needs her coffee.

It's so easy to use that Pirate asked if she could make a tutorial video, and I said yes! So without further ado, I give you: 

Pirate's Coffee Tutorial.


I love how excited she was to make this video for y'all, I hope you enjoyed it. 

Yes, my child attempted to slurp up the creamer she spilled! She is six, and this is real life. I've said it before, I'll say it again, nothing that you find on this blog will ever be about perfection! 

Tell me, what's your favorite way to drink coffee? Not a coffee drinker, what do you enjoy? As always, feel free to leave a comment and find us FB & Twitter

  1. Your family is so adorable! And since you are raising them to be coffee drinkers, you are raising them right. :)

  2. Sound like ya'll are having fun! I've got one of those dripper cones too, not Melitta, but it does work good....I just want a different kind of kettle for an easier time pouring.

Family Fridays: Roasting Marshmallows at the Kitchen Table

It's been a while since we had a Family Fridays post!
I can't even imagine how that happened, but we're back! And I can't wait to tell you what Pirate and I just did! 
But first! If you follow us on Facebook, (and you totally should!), you may have seen me post this. Well, here is the much awaited answer.
If you've been following my blog for any amount of time, you may know how important quality time is to us, and especially to our six year old, Pirate. 

Pirate's days are long. They start before "bright and early", since it's still dark at 5am. By the time she gets off of the school bus, we get about three good hours with her a day, four if we're lucky. After the 7 o'clock hour rolls around, all bets are off. Exhaustion takes over. Monsters come out. 


All that to say, family time has to be found and seized!

One year old Tootsie Roll was already down for a nap when Pirate got off of the bus. It was too cold to play outside,  I took one of her favor…

Family Friday: D I Y Game of Clue!

I'm super psyched about this post! It's been in the works for about a week now, and has been a labor of love.  

Mr. Incredible works long hours, so family time has to be found and seized! Hopefully, this will be the first in a weekly series called Family Friday. True, I'm not posting this one on a Friday. But as it turns out, the timing turned out to be perfect as we are SNOWED IN!!
Without further ado, I give you:  The Game of Clue: DIY STYLE!


Nothing says family time like sitting around the table, accusing each other of murder! Clue is a game that is older than tablets and apps. It comes from my childhood, but Mr. Incredible and Pirate had never played before.
Pirate loves few things more than a good craft, so I wanted to see if we could use the wonders of Google (and our printer) to make our own. Originally, I had planned on personalizing it by making family and friends into the suspects. But I thought I’d better keep it simple this time. As soon as Pirate heard that I had a…

We Tried Decaf: Five Cups Coffee!

This post contains affiliate links. We are not decaf drinkers here.
In fact, the last time I bought decaf coffee was years ago. And it wasn't for me. We had company over and we were trying to be considerate. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure decaf is super. But, can someone explain the goodness to me? I mean, sure. Coffee is coffee. And with enough cream and sugar, I suppose I could drink anything. (I don't really mean that!) But really.


Then, along came Five Cups Coffee.  It came to me in a magical Amazon Prime box. In case you don't know, "I offer free shipping" is a great pick-up line.


My thoughts were something like this: Um, it's decaf. But it's apparently special. I mean, it says so on the package, "The World Finest Coffee". (That's a direct quote.)

A roasting date of September-something was written on the back of the package, as well as some good coffee making directions. I didn't get a picture of that - oops.


Inside, whole bean…
