Any other coffee lovers in the community?

I drink it all day up till 5, then stop so my heart can slow down before I go to bed.

I just finished up an Old World Espresso form Riverfront Roasters, it was excellent.

I'm sorry I thought HEB was all over the state. It's a super market.

I'm glad you're enjoying your press! Mine was one of the better investments in terms of coffee gear I've ever bought.
I haven't seen HEB anywhere. But only because I wasn't looking. I searched and found many HEB references. Could you find a link and send it to me so I know whuzzup?

Pressed coffee is way different. Even what looks like weak coffee is rich and tastes very good. My only complaint is that it takes about 1/3 more coffee to get a good cuppa. But, I found I don't drink as much. I just enjoy the pot and drink sloooowwwly. And, I did get another hand crank grinder. What a difference. Electric grinders beat the bean into powder with speed. A mill type grinder cracks, chops and cuts the bean into uniform granules and that makes a big different in the amount of fines at the bottom of the pot. But, fined go down a lot easier than grounds.
Here's a link.;js...6629B476A8B1183.pOrnuGDegMylBya-upP2-Law0Geef

I use one tablespoon per cup. It makes a robust cup.

I've been sipping on a red eye all morning. 2 shots of espresso in 12 ounces of drip. Had a long night. Have to keep moving.
Chase & Sanborn ,A&P Coffee

Eight O'Clock Coffee is the brand name of the light roast of coffee introduced by the American supermarket chain A&P in 1859. In 1919, the roast was renamed and given its current trademark.[1] The company supposedly derived the name by conducting a survey asking people what time of day they drank coffee most. The majority of those surveyed reported that they typically drank coffee at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., which is why company went with the name "Eight O'Clock Coffee."[1]
I did not know that.
I do the same thing. It seems my interest peak when I'm at my brokest.

I bought some Mellita brand over the weekend. It was on sale at HEB. It's pretty good.
Don't know if I said this but I like Kona, and Costa Rican beans. They are a bit sweeter than most South American beans.

Their is an African bean called Yirgacheffe I also enjoy. It's almost fruity in it's notes.

Not around long enough to go stale. I drink a 16 oz bag in a few days.
I know. I'm slowing down again, or at least I'm trying to.

Just heard this tonight:

I like my women like I like my coffee ~ cold and bitter...

That's pretty funny.
I love Kona, but it's hard to find a pure Kona. Most of it is a blend, and I can't afford the real stuff.:(
I have the same issue, but there are some decent blends out there, but they seem to vary based on time of year.

I would like to try this kind of coffee. Never heard of it.
It's pretty good. Different that most are used to. It's like Kona, most of the time it's found in a blend.
I like coffee adverse affects on me,in the morning it cant wake me up enough,but at night it keeps me awake.Thats why i try not to drink any after 9am
I stop at 5pm for that exact reason. It will make is impossible to sleep that night.
Does anyone here make their coffee in a percolator? I was thinking of getting one but no one seems to use them anymore and I'm wondering why. Maybe you all know something I don't know?
I have a few but they are hand me downs from my Grandfather. I'm not a fan in general but it can be done well.
I have a one exclusively for camping. I think fondly of it, but it's the worst coffee ever.
Is that what you douse the campfire with? Tastes so bad it kills the flames?:D
It does get spit out into the fire quite often. Sometimes people hand it back to me like they don't need it that bad.
Two of my three kids got a Keurig for Christmas. My daughter gave me her 4 cup Mr. Coffee drip coffee make since she got the Keurig. I couldn't be happier. I have graduated from the occasional cup of instant coffee to coffee every morning now. And the small size is just the right size for me.
I use a basic drip at home. There are some great drip machines out there, but in the $10 - $100 range there is no real difference in taste, just features.
