Do you LOVE coffee?

Been there, done it,  and I completely understand and agree.

I have made some pretty good espresso using a Gaggia machine and home roasted coffee but my success period was short.

I am currently using 8 O'clock ground that smells great in  the bag but a million miles away in the cup.

How do you brew Starbucks Espresso Roast as far as measurement goes?

Sorry--I have always hated coffee. Can't drink the stuff. Tried it every way imaginable: cream, sugar, more sugar, more cream, more sugar....... Still undrinkable for me.

I can't even stand stuff like coffee-flavored ice cream.

Bleccchhhh.

LoL @BobBski !

That MRE instant, warmed up on tank's turbine exhaust (with hints of Kerosene) is the best cup you'll ever have when you're cold, tired and miserable!

I consider myself a minor coffee snob. Even at the house, I now use the Stanley camp French press. I use the Costco organic whole bean medium roast and commit the heresy of grinding the entire bag there. I used to use K-cups (and really liked it), but I switched over in preparation of going on the road, to not use the electric coffee maker. This is much better.

Charbucks is out of the question. I do like Einstein Brothers coffee, though.

An Aeropress Coffee Press.

I know the man who invented it.

He also invented the ring Frisbee.

BTW I am now 24 pounds lighter. lol

The best cup of coffee I've had is anything someone got up earlier and made.

In the camper van it's Bustello brand coffee made in a moka pot. I grew up on this stuff. Cleaning the moka pot is easy doesn't require a lot of water. Tried a coffee press but for me it was too hard to clean without using a lot of water.

I tried the 8 O'clock and agree with your assessment.

I like thick dark coffee, so I use two heaping 1/4 cup scoops in a 10 cup coffee maker, makes a nice tasty cup.

Pangea Coffee Roasters in Golden, CO. Absolutely the best roasters I've ever had the pleasure to do business with. The owner is the roastmaster and is extremely good at what he does. They will ship fresh roasted coffee to you!

I truly believe they produce the finest coffees in the Rocky Mtn region.

Loved Tim Horton's in Canada...in the US, Dunkin Donuts has a pretty good cup.  Wink
