MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 20, 2015

"Yum! We left out the lemon. Why it's even in the recipe, no clue! It's simply not needed. What we did add was just a healthy two-finger pinch of kosher salt. It helps to develop the flavor of the coffee in the short amount of time the grounds are in contact with the hot water as it brews."
