Coffee I LOVE COFFEE!! Coffee is one of my favorite beverages. I love trying different kinds. I almost want to write a poem for my love of coffee.
I’m starting this topic to get a list of your favorite coffee so I have some new ones to try. Don’t just reply with your favorite brand also tell me how you like to prepare it. Special ratio of grinds to water, type of maker you use, etc. Maybe you just use a Keurig and hit the button, who cares, let’s hear it!
When I was working at the university we run a high tech JURA machine.
Worked fine, BUT needed a lot of service.
Had to be done by a serviceman every year and was not cheap at all.
The coffee was tasteful.
At home now : No more machine available.
All handmade now:
Using such a filter, special paper, special “Filterkaffee”.
Pouring hot water into, ready.
I know Americans have another taste for coffee,
Beside this German “Filterkaffee” I like the italian/spanish/portugues" version.
But coffee only in the morning!
After this I like some tea.
And in the evening I take my beer!
I’m not as fancy as coffee connoisseurs. I make coffee every morning in my Cuisinart coffee maker (almost always Starbucks Verona).
My brother gave me an original Nespresso maker and milk frother a few months ago because he didn’t use it enough to warrant the counter space. I do like it and use it for lattes, usually on weekends when I have more time or for entertaining, but haven’t yet settled on a particular flavor of pod yet.
Whenever you put this machine on the breakfast table after having invited some friends, they all will be more than excited.
Bubbling and hissing like the an old witch’ cattle and the result is good tasting coffee and you can see how it is coming into being!
I am still trying to find coffees that I like, as long as it isnt decaff or half-caff I will try any roast. Caffeine wise, a company I recently tried a pound from did a little explanation that helped me understand the beans a little more. Their Three Sisters blend is pretty nice. Havent tried anymore just yet.
Have 2 methods to make it also, my Ninja Coffee System if I want it fast, and my stainless steel (glass breaks too easily) percolator for a great cup.
