My breakfast is usually coffee and cigarettes.
That used to be a fave of mine, but I'm really sensitive to caffeine these days, so if I have

Take a piece of steel (a fire poker is perfect) & set it to heating.
Grind your coffee beans (I prefer a mix of dark Columbian with a hint of high plantation Jamaican).

The grinds will be still floating on the surface. Remove from the heat.
Take the hot steel & run it just over the surface of the brew so that it boils madly only in the top 2mm.
