I found an old Coleman blue (with white speckles) tin or aluminum coffee mug, like the blue plates and cups you use when camping. Today with the same coffee and same coffee maker I poured a cu and WOW! It actually tasted better than ever! Upon reflection I figured it had to do with my dad making coffee at cookouts and camping trips, and freezing mornings here in the mountains when I would make percolator coffee outside and my first cup of the day was in one of those little blue tin mugs. Okay, I guess I'm nuts!
