How to cope with a power outage, part one.
In the event of a power outage, first, take your Zassenhaus hand cranked coffee grinder and use it. After that, everything will be okay. If you can't find your Zassenhaus coffee grinder, there are alternate methods such as putting your coffee beans in a sock and smashing them with a hammer, crushing them with a big rusty jar of peas on the cutting board, or wrapping your coffee beans in saran wrap and jumping up and down on them on the floor while screaming. None of these alternate methods work, but you'll feel better because you tried.
Hopefully you have a gas stove, a camp stove, or a chair that you never really liked that much which you can ignite in the back yard in order to boil some water. Don't forget to thank god that you roasted enough coffee beans before the power went out. If you didn't, you don't have enough chairs for that. Give up and drink tea.
Most serious coffee drinkers have at least two alternate methods for making coffee in case of a power outage.
