    keurig makes great coffee and it's so easy. french press makes phenomenal coffee and i feel like i accomplished something when i start to drink french press coffee that i made.

    french press this morning.

    back when i was entangled with the mexican woman, she went to hawaii on vacation with her husband and she brought me back a bag of this kona coffee, a private estate reserve, from this one coffee farm/estate as a gift. it was without a doubt the most amazing coffee i've ever had in my life. i actually made cold pressed coffee out of it and it tasted like delicious, rich silk.

    i just tried to buy some online and they're currently out of stock. argh.

    Yeah bro, you'll get yourself in Nikkerz breath territory with that ultra-strong pressed coffee.

    oh man i love my keurig! i don't usually drink more than a cup or two, so a full sized coffee maker isn't worth it to me. plus i can't make a good pot of coffee in a regular coffee maker to save my life. although i have a soft spot in my heart for those big commerical coffee makers. i can't remember the brand but a lot of restaurants and truck stops have them. they make great coffee.

    do you guys ever watch dangerous grounds?

    it's about a guy who goes all over the world looking for exotic coffees.

    it's pretty cool

    I got a couple different types of coffee off some recommendations here.
    and a coffee grinder.

    did you know they made elec grinders? :dontknow:

    You're a dentist and have probably run in to some sewer breath in your day... any truth to the French press theory?

    when I worked, I drank 4 mugs of coffee a day in the morning. 8 cups?

    when I retired, I had 4 cups one morning and I thought I was going to explode, I was so amped up.

    when working, I was always doing things and didn't notice how buzzed I was.

    now I only make 2 cups at a time so I don't over do it.


    over do it... :facepalm:
    :jj:

    that's it! those things make the best coffee. i'm always blown away when i go into some crappy truck stop and have the most amazing cup of coffee. those places always have those big bunn machines.

    what channel is that dangerous grounds on? sounds like something i'd like.

    if you're really into good coffee, check out this stuff when it becomes available again: http://store.greenwellfarms.com/kona-coffee-estate-coffee-s/23.htm

    and if you haven't ever made cold pressed coffee, you're missing out. you use a lot of coffee to make it, but there is no bitterness, the acidity level is super low, and it won't ever upset your stomach. and it is so smooth and delicious.

    btw...to make cold pressed coffee, i just put a ton of rough ground coffee grounds into my french press and fill with cold water (filtered). i put it in the fridge overnight and in the morning i press it and pour the liquid into a sealable jar/container. that liquid is super concentrated coffee. if you want iced coffee, mix some with cold water (i think about 1 part coffee concentrate to 3 or 4 parts water), ice, and whatever else you like. for hot coffee, mix with hot water. omg the best.

    serious.

    I'm just starting to get into different coffees and just bought my first grinder. I was the last person I knew to get a cell phone too. :)
    i'll check that stuff out. I just got some starbucks Christmas blend and will try it after my nap time :toke:

    they also have a pretty neat show called gem hunters where 3 people go to the ends of the earff to find rough gems. the only downside for me is they negotiate (screw) the locals out of pennies and make thousands off their hard, dangerous work.
