So I'm breaking in a Keurig single cup machine.




We just got one of those machines in my household. So far I don't like it. Can't find a coffee that I can settle on. Too strong.

No time for making one cup at a time. Besides, I don't care for exotic flavor trials. Just give me the old fashioned standard w/access to a shot of sugar. I'm good with that.

This is basically the set-up my coffee-crazy friend has:



(bear in mind this is after he's roasted AND hand-ground the beans in some fancy peugeot mill)

He has burr grinder and a smaller, metallic model that almost looks like a pepper mill.

barista for many years. hard to find decent coffee. french press is the way to go. although i'm interested in this aerobie aeropress.

in this city Parisi is very good. Roasterie is so-so. try getting your hands on a bag of this. sells for about $40/pound but is so damn good.

French press cannot be beat. However, for a single serve in the morning, I like my Bialetti stove-top espresso maker.

That vacuum pot setup is awesome! I've got a couple stove top vac pots that I will roll with a few times a year. Most of the time I keep it simple with my Royal Pro SuperAuto machine. It grinds, doses and brews a pretty good espresso or coffee. Just roasted some Ethiopian Sidamo earlier in the week. Really nice for approx $5/lb.

Had some Ethiopian beans he ground up the last time there (can't recall the exact blend), and was mightily impressed, even with my unsophisticated coffee palette.

That's exactly what I'm looking for--how difficult is it to operate?

It is really simple. There are only three parts: the top, the bottom, and a filter that sits in between the top and bottom. Unscrew the two main parts, fill the bottom with water, fill the filter with espresso grounds, screw it back together. Then you set it on the burner and you have espresso in just a few minutes.

If you get one, never wash it with soap. Just rinse off the parts really well after each use.

I have a couple different Ethiopian verities upstairs, a Sidamo and a Yirg I think. Too cold in the garage to roast lately The roaster never seems to get hot enough to roast the beans. If I roast inside, it will set off the smoke alarm and piss off the wife.

Yirg seems to ring a bell--I was very fond of it; not too overpowering.

Since I am still at work, and since I am getting increasingly tired and need some coffee, I'd love some ideas for new beans.

Generally, my favorite is Costa Rican Tarrazu coffee (preferably from Cafe Brit). I also like Starbucks' (yeah, I know) Sumatra blend.

Anyone else have some favorites?
