I think you nailed 'em, Misty. All so familiar to me.

One I might add is The "Professional": dog walkers who bring six to eight dogs each into the park, then let them all go and stand around with the other dog walkers drinking coffee from paper cups and completely ignoring their charges. So not good.

Heh! I can really sympathize with this. Coffee for me is a near obsession as well as a day-starting necessity.

But honestly, your idea of pre-prep'ing the coffee maker the night before is a perfectly valid one. The flavour is just not going to change that much by it sitting overnight. Plus you can arrange for the coffee maker to start by itself on a timer.

Personally I'm so fussed about the coffee flavours that I subject myself to the whole complex pour-over routine, complete with grinding beans fresh, weighing everything and timing all the steps. I only manage to accomplish this crazy process first thing in the morning in my sleep-crazed state by having practiced the routine countless times so I can almost do it in my sleep.

But the coffee is simply heavenly, so it's all worth it!
