Coffee Bar - French Press, Pour Over or Perk?


Recommended Posts

I won a Nespresso Virtuo about 5 years ago, and my wife and I LOVE it!!! I prefer the espresso options as I enjoy “lattes”, and my wife likes their regular blends better. Here are a couple pics from this morning’s brew.

I have a little coffee bar at home.  

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.

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.

So I've been making my coffee primarily with a French press and Aeropress when needed. The problem I have is that I roll right out of bed and right into my office chair and straight into work. And usually it's about 9 before I can break myself away to make a cup.

I'm considering getting a machine just so I can have it going off just before rolling out of bed at 6 a.m. budget's $200 or less. I know that's not a lot but it should be enough to get something decent right?

Anybody have any suggestions?

Considering my equal taste for a strong black cold brew, I'm considering this. It also has a loose leaf tea setting and I do love me some green or lions mane tea. Also like that I can just put my 24 oz thermos in it and good to go!

the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..

How was it? I have been thinking about ordering for a while, they sponsor someone I watch so a discount for my first order is really tempting me.

I do like the coffee. This roast is smooth and stands on its own. It is my first purchase and I will definitely try other roasts

Picked up a pound of King Cake blend from PJs Coffee and made a cold brew out of it. It's fantastic with strong cinnamon & vanilla flavors and packs a pretty good jolt. Highly recommended, you can find their shop online. IMG_4963.jpg.ffa7639b2d2ff939f63079873db9eaa5.jpg

Cold brew is fantastic. For those who haven't tried it: it's nothing like regular coffee that's gotten cold. You can take the same beans and make a normal cup of coffee and a cold brew and they end up with significantly different flavor profiles. The cold brew tends to be naturally milder and sweeter, almost a kind of coffee-flavored tea.

I'm with you on the nitro brew; I haven't yet found a reasonable or economical way to replicate that at home.

@azstu324 Just got this baby from Royal Brew loaded up today. Looking forward to my first home Nitro Cold Brew in the morning. Will report my findings.

Definitely interested to hear your thoughts on this, and how much it costs per like 8oz of brewed coffee?

I'm just a simple guy..................... Maxwell House in the coffee maker in the morning... I'm a happy guy.

I'd be happy too, unfortunately the acid and my stomach don't agree. So the lower-acidity of cold brew is the compromise that me and the old gut have come to.

Cost per batch (approximately 80 oz) works out to $4.14. That includes 2 cups of beans & 2 nitrous canisters.

So you can brew the CB, then infuse the nitrous using the tap, and store that? It tastes good the next day? I noticed they said the nitrous slowly leaks out so the canisters don't last more than 48 hrs. I only drink about 8-12oz of coffee a day depending how rough I feel in the morning.

I found a local roaster, FoJo Beans, when I volunteered at the Military Courtesy Room at Hancock Airport. They have a blend I’ve become addicted to, Dirty Morning. They describe it as a Radical Roast Blend of coffee the Americas and Indonesia. It’s my go to coffee.

Thanks Sam...I’ll definitely check these out. I was rotating between this, Counter Culture “big trouble” and the occasional Tim Hortons just because. I’ve always loved good black coffee and as I age I’d prefer to use money I’d spend on beer or other non essentials on a good cup. I discovered Peet’s on accident on a family trip / wedding to SF Bay. The Air BnB had a communal, non-perishable leftover policy that allowed us to try the prior tenants coffee preferences. That happened to be Major Dickason’s blend and the rest is history.  We were waking up drinking coffee to this view...(this is sunset but you get the point)

In club ho terms I am an off the rack coffee drinker. 😁  It's dunkin donuts coffee bought from BJ's and run through the drip style Mr Coffee maker for me.  If I'm on the road I'll go wild and get WaWa columbian with a splash of hazelnut.  Sorry that I brought the culture level of the thread down a notch!  😋

Major Dickinson is a regular in Costco. I used to get it but I’m the only coffee drinker and it took me awhile to get through it. A few years ago Costco would roast coffee in stores. They stopped due to fires I believe. It was super fresh and amazing. After discovering that coffee drunk closest to its roasting date is the best I decided to try local in smaller bags. No going back.
