The coffee thread

Coffee: Is it destroying the lives of youths in this country? Tune in at 11 to find out.

Coffee thread for all things coffee. How do you like it? How do you make it? What are you drinking today? What are your favorite methods/drinks/roasts?

The past couple days I've been having a roast from a local roaster (Bow Truss Coffee Roasters). It's Sumatra Lintong, Blue Batak. Been making it pourover-style with a Chemex pot and it's really fantastic. Finished the bag of beans today and I'm sad to see it go. It's really bright, but not too fruity or juicy like a lot of brighter roasts are. Absolutely delicious.

Re: The coffee thread

Coffee is ruining my life. I got hooked when I was 10 and I've been trying to stop ever since. Any kind is a good kind to my brain. That's the worst part.

Re: The coffee thread

MMM...Yes I'm addicted to coffee! I have 2 cups a day. I do 6 shots of Gevalia espresso from my Capresso cappuccino machine. I add a few tablespoons of french vanilla creamer and a packet of truvia for sweetness - coffee has never tasted better.

Re: The coffee thread

Coffee is awesome, I drink it Turkish style - so pretty damn strong at the moment I'm enjoying a Yemeni matari, it's very smooth, quite light in colour with a beautiful smooth aroma. It's actually pretty strong but from the appearance and taste you wouldn't really know.

I've been lucky enough to try a rather large range of coffee, including civet coffee too which is absolute gorgeous. Very chocolatey in flavour, tastes amazing unless you put milk in, then it's ruined I've also tried blue mountain as well but tbh for the price of it there's much nicer coffee out there.

But yeah, my ibrik sees a fair bit of use and is about again as I've not long awoken

Slave to fast food coffee, a few a day. Tim Hortons, McDonalds, gas stations etc.
I'm rarely at home so I don't get around to brewing my own.

The secret is salt. Very little of it. Takes some of the bitterness away, and makes it taste sweeter and softer.

Just.. Very little of it.

Re: The coffee thread

I wish I was more involved into this, I like coffee, but I mostly drink Starbuck's and the groceries roast which is a bit better than most of the commercial kind..

I'll try that salt trick. but I plan on buying an espresso machine eventually with good bags of beans.

About that size? Perhaps about two-thirds the size of your basic American diner coffee cup.

I'd never even want to use them for coffee though. They're kinda cheap and plasticy feeling and I really doubt that they'd retain heat well, too. I keep expecting that maybe I'll use them for a fun cocktail someday, but I never do.

Coffee every morning.. If I don't, then chances are that I'll end up with a headache.

Re: The coffee thread

my quality of life improved a lot when i bought my first full automatic

i have become a big fan of segafredo beans, "intermezzo" is a really smooth blend, tastes great black and is the perfect morning coffee (with milk, or even cream and sugar)

Re: The coffee thread

When I live with my parents I enjoy the finest coffee, because my dad randomly got obsessed by it, and bought a coffee machine, roaster and grinder. He has green beans delivered, and roasts them himself.

Tastes good. Though recently there was an article in the guardian saying that more than 5 cups a day has been found to significantly decrease ones life-span. I'm not over that amount, but if any of you guys are, might wanna rethink.

Re: The coffee thread

Today, I'm having Bow Truss's espresso-focused blend, called Foundation. Pourover-style in the Chemex again. I've always digged it. Think it was recently awarded 3rd best blend for espresso in the nation by some coffee convention of sorts. I don't just use it for espresso, of course, as I think it is awesome in anything that you'd like a bold roast in, like a French press, or making a nice café au lait, etc.

Re: The coffee thread

When I drink it's usually 'Nescafe gold de lux' (instant).
I prefer caffeine-pills, not because I don't like the taste of coffee but because you get more caffeine in a concentrated form and won't have to run to the bathroom.
It wont raise the heart rate as much either.
I find that once you get used to one brand of coffee others aren't just as good, some even taste like poison.
