    I'm not a "coffee junkie" necessarily, but I do enjoy GOOD coffee. I usually buy my coffee from Trader Joe's because they have a big selection of pretty good stuff. I can't deal with the major brands (Folgers, Maxwell House, Starbucks, etc.)

    Where do you get beans that you can roast yourself?

    the site is chock-full of info about coffee, and home roasting and brewing. a pound of beans averages about 5 bucks, with slight discounts if you buy in quantity. they also sell all the roasting equipment you'd ever need. i used to strictly buy from peet's , but once i began roasting my own, peet's tasted old. roasting at home is very easy, too! and the coffee tastes fantastic!

    Doesn't coffee have some medicinal properties if you don't nuke it with sugar and cream?

    Yes, but with the positive come the negative.

    Gain: antioxidants
    Lose: normal paced heartbeat and possibly bloodpressure.

    Coffee is to the morning as bourbon is to the evening.




    My all time favorite is Ethiopian Yrgacheffe...french roast. I used to live in a town with a great coffee shop that roasted just enough every monday to get them through the next monday. I was working as a bartender during the day right next door when they opened...best coffee shop ever...off the wall magazine stand, home made scones and muffins...a chocolate cherry brownie worth killing your mother over. Sadly, the owner died of cancer just a year or two ago.


    but, yea, don't ask me for shiat before my first cup.

    You know, don't even talk to me about coffee. You'd think Seattle would have a ton of great coffee places but it seems like it's all Starbucks and Tully's now.

    I have to go down to Olympia now to get any decent brew, Batdorf Bronson's ...

    WaWa cappucino.



    Though I'm fairly certain there's only about 5 percent coffee in there, with the rest comprised of sugar, pure fats, and just enough cocaine to keep you coming back.

    Greetings..

    AHHH.. Coffee, the golden nectar of the Gods.. dark, rich, and, the good stuff (light roast) is really buzzy.. i have reduced my intake to about 4 cups a day, 3 in the mornings and 1 after work (5-6:00 pm).. i do like good teas as well.. some of the attraction is in the ritual of preparation, both coffee and tea.. a bit like a ceremony.. i grind my own, or.. go to Barnies, the best local supplier (Orlando).. and, how does Starfcuks stay in business? that is the worst coffee, double roasted which equates to burned.. evenings i find a good coffee and a morsel of dark chocolate to finish off the meal... ummmm, gotta run, there's coffee to brew!

    Be well..

    I drink 2-3 cups a day but if I don't get my coffee in by 11:00am or so I'll start to get a headache. I love dark roast, like a french or itallian roast. I guess its not too bad. I drink tons of water to make up for it.
