Re: Coffee - What is your favorite?

Timely thread...reminded me to resume my dunkin donuts autoship program. Pretty nice deal...$6.39/lb (for a REAL pound, not the new faux 12 ounce 'pound'). I buy them four at a time to cut down on the shipping. Nice mild brew, which is the wifes preference. I like a little more bite to it, but its a pretty good coffee at a pretty good price.

Re: Coffee - What is your favorite?

I love coffee, but, coffee hasn't been loving me lately. I have been weaning myself from coffee to green tea . I have been feeling better since I have not been drinking as much. Doc told me that I have thinning of the bones and with my GERD, I thought I'd try to cut down on coffee and wine in case I need to start taking Fosamax or something similar. Too much acid for me.

Re: Coffee - What is your favorite?

Columbian coffee mostly,( Costco Brand) but I brought some back from Maui "Sir Wilfreds" Choc. Macadamia nut made in Kaui..really good coffee. I also liked Maui coffee.

For some reason I didn't like Kona. Glad because it is really expensive.
Kona was $27.00 for a 1 pound bag.... too rich for my tase.

Re: Coffee - What is your favorite?

Dunkin Donuts --- black and strong

I also like Chock full o nuts because of the nutty flavor

The best coffee I ever had was in a cafe in France. It was so strong you could chew it. I don't know what kind it was, but I sure do miss it. I also love French wine.

Well, it didn't get better by virtue of making us wait for it!

But it explains why you're home taking care of the kid...

... and probably working barefoot in the kitchen, too, right?

Wowser! I just got a can of Sam'sChoice(aka Walmart) 100% Columbian.

Maybe not Juan's - -a sister perhaps.
Can't wait to take the sack off.

Re: Coffee - What is your favorite?

Once you've tasted really fresh coffee, it is very hard to swallow the stuff you get in cans. I buy freshly roasted whole beans (usually the same day they are roasted) in very small quantities (about a weeks worth) from Whole Foods market. They have a roasting machine right in the store. I prefer light roasts because they are the sweetest (yes, fresh coffee is sweet!) the dark roasts or French roast beans taste too burnt for my palate. Then when I want to enjoy a cup or two of coffee, I grind the beans coarsely with a home grinder, and brew the coffee in a french press.

For me, life is just too short to drink cheap beer or stale coffee!

Re: Coffee - What is your favorite?

As far as coffee brewing methods go, I highly recommend the AeroPress, which I heard about in another thread on this board. I was skeptical at first but it's turned out to be 100x better than the drip coffee at the office and is really conveinent if you only want to make a one or two cups at a time (it's not so good if you need to make a lot of coffee quickly). I drink the coffee straight, but it also works well in lattes and iced coffees.

i saw on some food show that the light roasts have more caffeine - which i think is the opposite of what most people (including me) assumed - the darker roasts taste richer, but have less caffeine..

i had a french press but was never satisfied with how clean i could get the spring/strainer...but i guess that doesn't really matter too much...

it always astonished me how it would say "3 cup" or "5 cup" and was the size of one of my mugs hehehe

When I was in the Navy I drank coffee nonstop 24/7/365 - literally. I would drink 20 cups or more per day! A few years ago DW and I took a 6 week trip to Italy. The italians we met only had 1 coffee drink in the morning., usually a shot of espresso. Then another at lunch and sometimes another shot after dinner. So I started to emulate them and I cut way way back on my coffee consumption. Now I usually just enjoy my "3 cup" french press (about 16 ounces) of freshly brewed coffee in the am, and that's it. Although I do enjoy a shot of Sambuca in espresso from time to time after dinner!

The book "Caffeine Blues" can scare the heck out of you.

All the way back to 1-2 cups per day, anyway.
