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

So far so good.

Question...how many cups can you expect out of a K cup?

(I can only imagine the responses...it's a coffee cup boys)

I need a new coffee maker.

Prefer thermal, though my old Capresso didn't keep sh*t warm (despite the price).

Any suggestions?

French press is great, but uses a lot of grounds.

My wife likes a french press, but I prefer not to drink grounds.

Looking for something that'll keep it hot for a couple of hours without burning.

If you like the taste of french press but not the grounds, try the aerobie aeropress. Same concept but you push the brew through a filter so it isn't full of crap (instead of pushing a filter through and the coffee to the bottom). Makes a great americano.

I got this one for xmas. It's awesome. I love the no hands feature. (Cue: LisaT or Brando).

It's a cheap one, I know, but I'm simple like that.

Does anyone here roast their own beans? If you are a coffee freak, it's the only way to go.

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.

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.

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?

Ethiopia Harrar is my absolute favorite. Unfortunately, it was another bad year for Harrars. I stay away from Starbucks because I think they roast too dark. It tastes burnt to me. Sumatra coffee is usually very good, I also like coffee from Nicaragua, Panama, and Costa Rica

Agreed on Starbucks roasting process. Their Sumatra is the only thing I can stand, probably because that is all my mom ever brewed when I lived at home (she is a Seattle coffee snob and still sees Starbucks as he local coffee place).

Any Panamanian coffee or is there a particular type for which I should keep an eye out.

(from my coffee nut friend):
"For Central American beans I've always enjoyed Guatemalan beans. Both Huehuetenango and Antigua beans are often excellent, with great depth and variety depending on the degree of the roast.
Otherwise, for a real treat, that's on par with Jamaican Blue Mountain or Kona, but not as well known, is Puerto Rican."
