What coffee are you drinking?

Post by bhutchinson87 »

Thought I could start a thread for all you coffee aficionados.

I found Grounds and Hounds Coffee a little while ago and was intrigued. I am a dog/animal lover (that's a thread all in itself!) so I also appreciated the cause they advertise. I picked up some of their coffee locally and ended up really liking it so I bought this bundle to try more of a variety from them. They threw in the tin cup for free.

What's in your coffee cup?

Black Cat Espresso from Intelligentsia coffee in Chicago. Use it for a latte every morning for the wife and me. I also like Metric Coffee in Chicago, Quantum Espresso.

I do love some espresso, but I only have a stove top percolator at the moment. How do you prepare your espresso?

Starbucks Sumatra out of the Bunn.

Tried loads of other coffees. Tried grinding fresh beans with a burr grinder and doing my own pour over style.

Every time came back to the Starbucks. Grinding beans in the morning when I wanted coffee quickly sucked.

Plus, the Bunn technically is pour over coffee with the way it comes out of the spray head as it isn't a drip style.

Wife recently got a Nespresso, so I've had a few of those lately. I couldn't tell you what the flavors were, but they were good. Otherwise, my go-to is a vanilla latte from Caribou Coffee (MN company), which is vastly superior to Starbucks, IMO. I do prefer Starbucks' breakfast sandwiches, though. I do not like plain coffee without some kind of flavoring or at least a bunch of heavy cream (none of that half-and-half nonsense).

Onyx Coffee via a Chemex. Southern Weather is their best blend.

I’m not happy unless it is Starbucks French roast. I’m not saying that it’s the best, but it is what I am used to. It never lets me down.

Oh, and anything brewed by a clover press.

That's what I'm after. A consistent cup of coffee. I make it the same every day and it tastes the same......that is delicious.

I've tried other coffee's but keep coming back to 8 O'clock Italian roast whole bean. It's cheap, I can find it at Walmart and it has a nice roust flavor. We always grind our coffee the night before so it is as fresh as possible. We are simple and like coffee flavored coffee with some sugar and french vanilla creamer. I will rarely buy coffee when I'm out too.

I don’t drink coffee but my wife is an 8 O’ Clock fan as well. We can find it in any store we go to so it’s convenient and I don’t have to worry about getting beaten unmercifully for buying the wrong thing because the store didn’t carry it.
I may not have the best lawn and I may not have a clue what I’m doing but that’s pretty much all I have to say.

@bhutchinson87 I use a La Marzocco GS/3 ground with a Mazzer grinder. 18 grams of beans in a 2:1 ratio brewed over 28-30 seconds. I started with an Expobar machine and upgraded around 5 years ago.

I am not a fan of Starbucks. I think they overroast their beans. I will drink it in a pinch but I prefer a lighter roast.

Great thread.

I drink Costco coffee that's pre-ground, so I need to step up my game. After drinking it with either Splenda® or some sort of flavored creamer for years, it was MQ who got me to switch to black last year. Now I enjoy the flavor of the actual coffee.

Anyone French/Freedom press their coffee? I've thought about trying it only because it looks easy and affordable.

Love French Pressed coffee...I just don’t take the time to do it everyday as it’s a process.

That's why I've always drank it black. Fill it with creamer and sugar and you're masking the true flavor of the bean.

IMO, if you really enjoy drinking your coffee, then pick up a French Press at some point. It doesn't need to be expensive.
From my experience, using the French Press method will give you a better version of your coffee.
I have one and use it from time-to-time, on special occasions.

"Donut Shop" Keurig cups from my K-mini Single Serve. Buy cheap K-cups by the case at Sams, drink 'em 'til your heart is in defib. Then it's about time to mow... really, really fast.

We drink the Community Breakfast Blend here and use a drip maker to brew it. Not exciting but tasty enough.

Big easy bold is the best k-cup I’ve found. Usually drink it black.

I misspoke before. I don’t drink hot coffee. I really enjoy ice coffee. I found an ice coffee concentrate that comes in the exact same squeeze and measure bottle that Bifen I/T and Propiconazole come in. One ounce mixed with about 6oz of milk is a nice drink on a muggy morning.
