Thanks for the info, Steve.
Some milk and a little sugar and I'm good to go!
Expresso. One sugar.
I like my coffee black, but I take a little milk and sugar in my hot tea, especially a strong black tea like Irish Breakfast.
M-F Two cappuccinos. Home roasted beans (Espresso Monkey Blend-Sweet Maria's), Behmor roaster. Rancilio Miss Silvia and Rancilio grinder. Frothed Milk/Sugar. I like my espresso hot and sweet, (like my women).
Weekends with the wife, Home roasted beans, Columbian, Kenyan, depends, Chemex. Cream, no sugar.
I get Guatemalan beans at SAMs club. Pablo's Pride is the brand in a dark roast. Grind in my little Krups grinder and brew in the Mr. Coffee. No cream or sugar. Good stuff! I'm non functional without coffee in the morning.
It is like drinking a candy bar!! I tell my wife that all the time!! She gets her coffee from Dunkin Donuts and she gets a large ice French Vanilla extra cream extra sugar and 3 shots of mocha... THAT IS NOT COFFEE!!!
I need to get back into home-roasting. I was doing it fairly regularly for several years than got busy with so much other stuff that I failed to make time and put in the effort to do so.
Sweet Marias was my main provider of the green beans. They're a short drive over the hill from me.
If I were that close, I could save a lot on shipping. Tom has a great selection and won't sell crappy beans.
I prefer a Café au lait style, so made with 50% hot milk. I also prefer it sweet, so a sugar or two...
Grind my own beans, black n strong.
What? No Kopi Luwak?
I believe these are the digested and excreted beans? Tell me, how do you like them Erik? Black? Cream? Sugar?
Just like folks that prefer cartridges, or disposables, or SE/DE, or foam, or shaving cream aren't really shaving, right?
About a month ago, I actually switched to instant coffee. I know, I cannot explain it but I lost my desire for the flavour of pressed coffee. I drank so much of it I needed a change. I picked up Nescafe and its been good.
You got that right my friend !!
As black coffee is my preference in caffeinated beverage and SRs & soap pucks are my desired choice for shaving,
I'm not opposed to others choosing their own preferred methods—no matter how inferior their choices may be....
Still using my cheap little Black n' Decker whirlygig grinder. Makes a big enough difference that the wife can notice it. Just used up a bag of 8 o'Clock's standard beans and bought some Harris Teeter branded Kona (who knows who makes them). They're actually tastier.
