There needs to be a coffee thread for us addicts...

though i've been off the coffee since the beginning of may - i relented on the weekend and had one saturday afternoon and it was the greatest thing i've ever had in my life.

wow.

i much prefer tea, i dont like the taste of coffee that much. Great for a kick though!


angelic_layer  said about 8 years ago:

your right svelteslacks..its shit..

i need to get the good stuff. but I feel guilty if I spend money on it.

any suggestions??


Benji  said about 8 years ago:

I have all the coffee-addict paraphernalia, the good machine, the good blend, the latte cups from france, and the thermometer used to ensure my micro-foam is just so.

Does this make me a bad person?


medicineman  said about 8 years ago:

that's the one 6er - it has helped me with my coffee exile.... and it tastes pretty great too. especially with a little bit of honey.


svelteslacks  said about 8 years ago:

i don't have a machine, i am a plunger girl.
you can get them real cheap.

and then try some out... depends what you like. there are stacks of decent organic coffee's you can get for about $12.

that will last ages.


medicineman  said about 8 years ago:

no benji - it makes you my coffee hero.. you should talk to Sheik - he is the same coffee fanantic


Benji  said about 8 years ago:

I'm using genovese or the Atomica coffees, always with organic milk though (tends to froth better), but some of the org coffees tend to be 'soft' and don't grind so well.

Anyone found any other ripper blends?


angelic_layer  said about 8 years ago:

what about those little steel perculators? are they any good? Cos I got one of them..


Benji  said about 8 years ago:

whohoo, we share the same axe too medicineman makes medicineman a m&n friend

$78 is a cheap grinder? I guess I paid $30, and it was shit.

Is it Fair Trade stainless steel though?


black wasp!  said 8 days ago:

All the coffee snobs will tell you that you're meant to spend heaps more on the grinder than on the coffee making device itself. And they get crazy expensive – you could pay $800 for one.


GrantleyBuffalo  said 8 days ago:

Try grindr


Ghostface  said 8 days ago:

Today I got beans from Single Origin rather than the usual Campos. Mmmm Colombian beans. Looking forward to the morning!


ocelotl  said 8 days ago:

How do those hand grinders go as a home option?

the novelty wears off after the first grind.

+1, for a while I was like whoo, I'm getting exercise or something! Then I developed some sort of very specific RSI in my wrist. Couldn't really use it any more. Went back to buying ground coffee.


klaximopark  said 8 days ago:

Buying ground coffee? Ew. I've been hand grinding beans for about 5 years no wuckers. I've got a hario and a porlex, both very good consistent grinds with no huge outlay at the start on a good electric grinder.

Good beans delivery from sensory lab, market lane, seven seeds. But yeah, not cheap.


klaximopark  said 8 days ago:

That said, I do pourover or aeropress which is a coarser grind, I can understand why grinding super fine for espresso/stovetop would get old very quickly.


tugboat  said 8 days ago:

Breville's smart grinder. $300. Awesome, m8888


flukazoid  said 8 days ago:

Went back to buying ground coffee.

Ain't nobody got time for that


flukazoid  said 8 days ago:

FWIW I have a couple of Hario grinders but I kind of prefer my coffee to be made by people that can afford EKs tbh if you know what I mean


juicenewton*  said 8 days ago:

Mr Jn* adores his '68 Bruan Weiss grinder. We have his parent's original white one and an orange one to be used when the first one conks - 47 years and counting on that though.......


klaximopark  said 8 days ago:

Blade grinder?

the horror


juicenewton*  said 8 days ago:

yes. deal.


black wasp!  said 8 days ago:

heathens etc


Sunnyboyz  said 8 days ago:

SnoopDoug  said 8 days ago:

Fuck you man. Why don't you move to Norway and slaughter dolphins while you're at it!


black wasp!  said 8 days ago:

seriously pods are for cunts


Sunnyboyz  said 8 days ago:

but I recycle them


ocelotl  said 7 days ago:

Pods! I feel better about my confession about buying ground coffee now.


tugboat  said 6 days ago:

Heh


croozer  said 6 days ago:

croozer  said 6 days ago:
