Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Katharine Shilcutt posted her Top 5 Coffee Hacks, and wouldn't you know it? Some of y'all didn't agree with her and wrote in to tell us how it's done. One commenter, going by "Lol," really upped the ante:

This is nothing. I grow my own coffee from seeds, harvest the beans, roast them using only the heat of the sun, grind them between two pieces of authentic Ethiopian stone that I excavated from an ancient site myself, then add hot water that has been blessed by priests and shamans from at least twelve different religions, before drinking the finished product out of a golden chalice. Anything else just tastes nasty.

Well, Lol. Um. LOL!

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
