It's time to get rid of that mildewy old coffee maker that's been lurking on your counter since your junior year of college, following you from apartment to apartment and never ever making a decent cup of coffee.

On Saturday, get thee to Counter Culture Coffee's training center in Somerville. Your coffee-making life is about to change, because you can trade in that smelly, brown-stained plug-in apparatus for a ceramic pour-over cone with accouterments. Pour-over coffee is easy to make and often tastes better, although if you are such a caffeine addict that you require a device with a timer, it is probably not for you. The folks at Counter Culture will also demonstrate how to use the equipment. And think of all the counter space you will save!

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
