    Default Any Coffee Snobs Aboard?

    I like coffee.

    Coffee is indefinitely more than a beverage that awakens one from his
    slumber. When prepared properly, it can befit the flavorful and refined
    qualities of an aged wine or whiskey. The purpose for drinking coffee
    is to enjoy the intoxicating aroma and taste of which nothing else can
    compare.

    Favorite bean? Peruvian Organic from Coffee Dan's in OKC!

    Favorite brewing method? French press with 3 tablespoons of coffee
    per large cup. Approx. 10oz. 4 minutes and no longer. Start the
    time when the water is poured!

    Favorite water temperature? 93.3 Celsius (200 Farenheit).

    Favorite grind? 4 notches to the left of Medium using a
    Cuisinart burr grinder.

    Favorite emergency cup? McDonald's (27 cents) and pretty good!

    Next favorite? Starbucks Cafe Americano. Make sure there's
    enough espresso before driving off!

    The Keurig coffee maker has been the best invention for me. It takes the guess work out of making coffee. I'm a one cup of coffee person who doesn't need anything more than 8oz. in the morning. Still waiting for Dunkin' Donuts to release their K-cups.

    Keurig is a good maker. Very neat and clean! We've thought about
    getting one. There's an insert for adding your own coffee but that
    defeats the purpose of not having a cleanup.

    We have a Keurig and love it. We waste far less coffee now. It makes pretty good tea too. I'm no coffee snob though. Any ole cup o' joe will do for me.

    My buddys at deer camp make fun of me becuase I bring a French Press and a bag of Espresso. But I get my caffeine intake in a smaller volume than they do and do not have to climb down out of my deer stand to piss.

    Don't consider myself a coffee snob yet...Although we do enjoy a good cup of coffee. We recently bought a coffee grinder and started buying whole beans and grinding them each time we make a pot. We make at least one pot each morning, sometimes two. We usually buy our beans at "Bean Juice" in Edmond.

    Haven't graduated to a burr grinder, or a French Press yet. Using a blade grinder, and a drip maker......but still what a vast difference from the ground coffee available at the grocery stores.

    Love my Keurig. Dunkin Donuts K cups are now available at their stores. The Dunkin Dark is hard to beat.

    I have a Cusinart burr grinder ($45-ish) and it's just fair. It produces
    too much powder and it shows in the French Press. Hopefully some
    research will find a better one.

    Interestingly enough (to me, anyway), I can't stand the taste of coffee, but it is absolutely one of my favorite smells! I love the smell of coffee beans, coffee beans being roasted, coffee beans being ground, and coffee brewing. Once coffe is cold, though, it really doesn't smell good anymore.

    I remember in the late 60s and early 70s driving up to Edmond past the Cains plant, mmmmmm!

  15. Default Re: Any Coffee Snobs Aboard?

    Skyrick,
    I am not a coffee lover but I drank it for years. I have started drinking tea more lately, but you mentioned the Cains plant and I used to buy products from them and it was great to go into their plant. The aroma was great. I also remember as a child going to scout meetings and walking by a Cains panel truck and it always smelled so good. If it tasted that good, I would give up beer! Well, that might be a stretch, but, you get my point.

    That brings back memories. The Purina and Cain's plants provided some
    great smells. Loved the Purina.

    Great! Kona is hard to beat. A friend was in Hawaii last week and is
    going to bring some Kona to us!

    Roasters Exchange is Coffee Dan's! It's the best!

    I haven't tried Maragogype. How does it compare to Kona, or does
    it?

    French Press rocks!

    Great video. My espresso machine bit the dust. I'm looking into a
    vacuum brewer. Prunette says, "just what we need...arrrrgh..."

    Farmer Brothers Coffee has a branch in Oklahoma City. Do yourself a favor and pay them a visit (they are a commercial supplier of whole bean, ground coffee, and other restaurant supplies. They have the best, freshest, highest quality whole bean coffee you'll find anywhere in the US.

    If you love coffee, and you havent tried farmer brothers, then do yourself a favor and give it a shot.

    most of you have had farmer brothers coffee at places like Jimmys egg, local gas stations, casinos, etc. But thats not usually their good stuff.
