This is so simple and so good. There are lots of fancied-up versions of this out there, but this is how I make mine. The kids like it too. I know, kids shouldn't have coffee....but if I want any peace, they get theirs too! The coffee amount depends on the size of your mug. I also brew my coffee kind of strong, but use your normal coffee. The cook time is time to brew your coffee. Enjoy!
