The Coffee Thread

Been discovering coffee lately, and I've learned the following:

Black > Cream & Sugar
Decaf cannot be cold brewed
Small, local roasters make bomb coffee
Medium and lighter roasts are often more complex
Starbucks is kinda bleh
Starbucks instant is great for backpacking, tho.

Discuss

Get my coffee from Costco, I rotate 3 diff varieties, I like SF Bay french roast, the Kirkland stuff from Starbuck$. The Kirkland stuff from Guatamala & Costa Rica is good. Always grind right before brewing.

another thing you-all should try is this: I have an electric kettle & when water is boiling I then pour it into the coffee machine then turn it on. The 'extraction' works best at near boiling & coffee machines just dont get water hot enough.

"Grind coffee while water is getting hot" <-try it, , , ,

Dark roasts for the win.

One of best coffee ive had is whisker twister dark roast from catfish coffee (i think it was catfish its been a while)

Dont like light roasts most of the time.


I put cream in mine almost always, but i still enjoy black. Sometimes put some honey in. If im feeling decadent i will put cream, maple syrup, cinammon, nutmeg, and shot or two of whiskey.


Also yes to cornemuse, grind fresh every time and use french press.

I drink it for the caffeine, light roast all day....bzzzzzzz try to stop drinking it by 9PM. I like my coffee in the evening to back up whatever liquor im into for the night. And coffee and a joint is a double pleasure....

I like it dark and black.
But waiver on that depending on various reasons now and again.

We french press, which captures all the delicious oils.
I think it's the best way you make coffee.

Dark roast = Less caffeine, which I prefer.

I enjoy trying different roasters and brands...
But Starbucks French Roast is a solid go to.
We've found their Verona Roast really nice as well.

Been in France for the last two weeks,
so drinking espresso. So niiiice.

Really like Turkish coffee,
which you get in the Balkans,
and of course Turkey....
I make that at home from time to time
or get it when I'm out, for food or a smoke,
at a hook bar. Very tasty.

Strangely, instant coffee is really decent over here.
Sadly we can't get the Nescafť that's good in the States.

Speaking of that Rev. Starbucks instant coffee...
While kind of expensive, is RAD FOR CAMPING.
And effortless comparatively. Soo nice out there.
Worth the extra coin. Again, we will take French Roast.

Bottoms up.

I can't live without it. I enjoy an espresso shot here and there. It's hot when you spill it on yourself in the car.

I don't drink coffee much these days, I prefer green teas like yerba mate, guayasa and matcha. For myself they are a much better means of enjoying a caffeine high - more clarity, longer lasting, and not much of a come down.

With that said there are a few coffee shops & roasteries that if I'm in the area I will usually indulge in some espresso beverage of sorts.

Chocolate milk double shot lattes at this one cash-only joint in Toronto, oh my goodness just thinking about those makes me drool.
There's a cozy place near where I'm living now that makes a mean cortado.
And a few spots here in Ottawa that pour some nice nitro cold brews.
mmmmmmmmmmmm

I never could develop a taste for coffee. I needed a ton of sugar in it to make it drinkable. I am struck by the severity of some people's addiction. I swear some people I used to work with were flat out assholes until they had enough coffee in them. Then they were just mere assholes.

Drank this for a while because coffee straight tweaks me out worse than cocaine even, but that stuff provides a nice mellow caffeine buzz instead of my heart pounding out my chest. It's expensive though.

Now i rarely drink caffeine, and when i do i usually just drink like a 1/4 of one of those little regular 5 hour energy bottles. Just a tiny sip will do me.

I wish i could drink coffee more because i like it, but it is just too much for me. A single cup is WAY too much.

I really dont get it though. I used to drink A LOT of soda and other caffeinated drinks dont get me nearly as much. Plus i mean, i used to be a pretty active drug user. Ive smoked crack for Christ's sake lol. Yet 2/3 a cup of coffee and i can feel horrible and tweaked out.

Fender - Some people are just really sensitive to caffeine. It's possible to fatally overdose on it - happens to young kids who chug energy drinks when their system is not used to any regular caffeine intake.

Reverie - THE COMMON. There's actually three of them now, two on Bloor and one on College. I lived a 3-minute walk away from the one on College for two months. I spent a lot of money there. Depending on when you go it can be really busy and there are no seats. Also the hours are flexible, at least at the College location. If there were enough people they'd stay open till midnight or later in the summer. I still keep in touch with a barista/bartender/musician who used to work there - he even bought a painting off me!

I like med-dark roast...used to drink Folger's instant from the time I was 10. It was what my grandmother drank, she took her own jar on vacation. Then when I married about 33, we started drinking automatic drip. We like some of Boca Java's, can't afford them now... I think my wife switches around to different flavors, brands etc.. but it's mostly all good

I drink weak coffee, all day long. Sugar and milk.

I can't stand other people's coffee because it's always too strong and makes me want to throw up.

Go ahead and laugh. I'm laughing too!

Could not agree more on coffee + ganja

I used to drink a metric fuckton of coffee daily but since I quit the cigs I can only stomach maybe two cups max before my stomach gets irritated. I like a cup first thing in the morning and especially before being in a race as it helps to move the ol bowels

I used to be a total coffee snob. Now I drink this israeli instant called Elite. if you whip 2tsp of instant coffee with 2tsp of sugar and about a tsp of hot water.. whip until the paste changes colour to a golden brown and then add the rest of your hot water..
whipping it brings out the crema.. you'll have like an inch of crema on top
