I use a 20 dollar GE drip coffee maker. I threw the screen filter away and use #2 paper filters. I carefully measure the water and the coffee.

I like Peet's French roast. I buy it ground from the grocery store but you can order it batch roasted, whole bean or ground however you want directly from Peet's.

It is really good. Other Peet's coffee I like are the House Blend and Major Dickinson's Blend.

I'm a fan of the William Spartivent Blue Mountain JAMAICAN. Picked up 3 bags recently from Costco and have had it in the past few years...packaging has changed to a chocolate brown (if you look it up on line at costco.ca)...amazing coffee...

Apparently this is another Axiomoes favorite as well...

If you can get hold of fresh roast whole beans, go for it.

Coffee quickly looses a lot of its flavour after it is ground.

I just got back from a local roaster with 4oz each of Kenya AA and Thailand peaberry. I had some Etheopian from them last week that was amazing. There was actually a hint of blackberry to the flavour. Yum!! You will never get this from a pre-ground or mass market coffee.

Well, don't get TOO proud.

It's not like you crush them between your testicles.

Tried that. Teeth give a better grind for a French press.

Testicles give better results as that area is not as warm as the mouth (heating up the coffee beans during the grinding process is not beneficial).

Answer: six posts



Question: How many posts does it take for Lampshade's nice coffee thread to be dragged down into the gutter.


In retrospect, it never had a chance.
