  • Dark roast coffee ( Community Coffee)
  • Drip coffee pot

For every cup of coffee -2 T of coffee . ( in the bottom grind basket). Boil water & pour in the top water basket. The water slowly drip through the whole to the coffee grinds , Then drips down the the bottom container. Slow & tasty.

Community Coffee is a local brand with a large local following you can purchase  from there shop @ Community Coffee Shop
