Coffee Maker Ratings from My Grandma's Perfect Cuppa

by Elaine Ong Li Mei

Can you rate love?

Can you rate love?

Coffee maker ratings, how do you rate love? Let me tell you a true story of a grandmother who never fails to give her grand-daughter the perfect cuppa...

"The morning sun rises; the rays filter through the translucent windows and tickle my lazy eyes to wake up to the call of the morning crows...The usual morning wake up calls by Mother Nature which I appreciate alot...

Looking at the empty bed beside me, I know my beloved Grandma is at the kitchen busy with her daily routine. Wait!!! A familiar fresh aroma dances her way through the whole house... what is that? It is my grandma's perfect brew of stocking coffee... The aroma which I will not exchange or replace anything with... This aroma has kept me company for years with the tenderness of love infused in it...

My Grandma will wake up early in the morning to boil a pot of water. From her rusty looking tin, she will heave out 2 beautiful smooth spoonfuls of coffee powder ( bought from Malaysia ) and put them into the stocking. Thereafter with the boiling water, she will pour through the stocking and that is where the aroma starts to diffuse through the whole house. You like it sweet? dash it with teaspoons of sugar and there you are... a cup of black coffee ( in our local context, we call " KOPI-O ")- my simple way to welcome an extraordinary day...

This true story is dedicated to my Grandma who has passed away last June ( 2006 ). Her cuppa fragrance will always be there in the morning, her love brewed strongly in my life will always be that perfect cuppa that I will serve to all whom I love... Always remembering you Granny... Forever your cuppa fan..
