Coffee Bar - French Press, Pour Over or Perk?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I would love to hear what people are using for their cold brew, how you make it and the flavors from the beans. I'll start. I've tried a number of beans and prefer a medium/dark roast with flavors of chocolate, toffee & nuts. Peets Major Dickason's Blend gives me all those flavors. 
I use 1 cup of beans at the coarsest setting on my Burr grinder. Put it in my French Press and slowly add water. I let it sit in the fridge for 48 hours and strain it through a coffee filter into a carafe. Some batches I drink straight and some I'll add a teaspoon of Melipone vanilla which adds a really nice flavor to the coffee.

We get a coarse grind of the Colombian or Peruvian bean at a local roastery in Albion, IN. Order about 5lb every few weeks and steep in our cold brew carafe that we got from Amazon.

I have a little coffee bar at home.  

Here's my typical morning coffee setup at my office: At home, we've got a Breville Barista Express espresso machine. I make a latte for my wife most mornings.

Playing with my new hand powered espresso maker, experimenting with different coffees. In other news, I'm three shots in already and after several more trial runs, won't be sleeping until April.

When I lived in the U.P. I would get beans from this place.  Just found out they ship now.  Looks like I can still get them!!  I highly recommend it if you are looking for something new to try.

That one is new.  My favorite isn’t on the site.  It was called northern lights I believe.

It is the 15th time I am retyping it, all of the first 14 would land me on trouble with the moderators and the wife, so:

Light with a hint of spicy?

I think I am still going to be in trouble with the wife, but might be safe here.

How did I just stumble upon this thread?! I'll have to take a picture of my little coffee bar at home but it consists of an OXO auto brewer, an old Saeco Espresso machine (needs to be replaced), a french press, an aeropress go, and two pour overs with one being a chemex and and one a hario v60, and finally a Rokpresso manual espresso press. Also have a hario skerton pro manual grinder and a couple hario cold brewers.

Can someone here coach me up on this Cold Brew coffee? I love french press but when its 100* outside a nice cold brew sounds good. How can I do this at home. Fancy machine? Preferred recipes?

Here's how I do it. Try letting it sit overnight first and then experiment with different steep times to see which level of boldness you prefer.

 

I use 1 cup of beans at the coarsest setting on my Burr grinder. Put it in my French Press and slowly add water. I let it sit in the fridge for 48 hours and strain it through a coffee filter into a carafe. Some batches I drink straight and some I'll add a teaspoon of Melipone vanilla which adds a really nice flavor to the coffee.

My wife bought me an espresso machine, so most days I think an americano due to convenience, but on occasion I'll enjoy a double espresso.

Prior to that, I was a cold brew addict.  My stomach has always been sensitive to coffee, but cold brew never seemed to bother it.  I would buy the stok brand from the grocery store, and then I got to where I made my own using cafe du monde, which I really enjoyed.  The chickory gives cold brew a little extra flavor that I think is otherwise missing since cold brew tends to produce muted flavors.

We have a fancy coffee bean roaster in town that does pour over coffee.  I'd admit it's the best coffee I've ever tasted.  Each bean and roast seems unique and interesting.  But almost every time I've enjoyed it, my insides have been destroyed.  As good as it is, I can't say it's worth the risk for me.

It came with the house not my style because it's plastic but it works for now. I had cream in my fridge which is odd and I used it just to get rid of it. I normally drink my coffee black.

Well. I walked nine the past two weekends. Didn’t score too poorly but I must need new shoes ‘cause I feel like a three day old cake donut. ...About to fall apart. But on the bright side, this arrived on my doorstep. And it was worth the wait. IMG_0726.JPG
