I think it was somewhere end of last year when I was in my store room doing some clearing and tidying up when I chanced upon this box. I can't remember for how long it was sitting in my store room but I can remember that this coffee maker was exchanged with the reward points of a credit card. When I received it, I left it in the store room because at that time I was still working and I never got to use it. Time passed and I totally forgot about it until I came upon it recently.
I wiped away the dust from the box and opened it to check on the product inside.
I took it out and I thought to myself that I might as well start using it. I read through the instruction manual and checked the product again. This old product does not come with a coffee filter, so I need to get the paper coffee filters before I could use it.
I have no idea how the paper coffee filter looks like and I went searching in the shopping malls and electrical shops. I asked around and nobody seems to know where to get the paper coffee filters. I almost gave up looking and one night as I was lying on bed, it dawned on me that I should try looking for the filters at the Daiso store.
True enough, I found the coffee filters in the Daiso store. I picked one that I thought was of the right size. At that time, it was MYR 5.30. Came back home and quickly took out one to fit into the coffee maker and found that it was a perfect fit. Then it was time to go buy some coffee beans. I only know of 2 places selling coffee beans.
I came to this stall on the 1st floor of the Ipoh wet market.
Being a first timer, I don't even know what coffee beans to buy.
After some questions and answers with the lady at the stall, she suggested a type of coffee beans which I can't even recall what it was. I bought 500 gm and asked to have them grounded.
Besides the loose coffee beans, there are also packed instant coffee powder for sale. There are some toasted beans and some with added sugar.
The freshly grounded coffee were packed and sealed into 2 separated packets. For the first few tries, the coffee doesn't taste good at all. But with the right amount of coffee powder, we are able to get some decent home made coffee. It is not a daily affair but once in a while we do enjoy our cup of hot non-sweetened black coffee in our own home.
For this world is not our home;
we are looking forward to our everlasting home in heaven.
(Hebrews 13:14, The Living Bible-TLB)
