Coffee Bar - French Press, Pour Over or Perk?

Does anyone have a good recipe for creamer?  Unlike a majority of coffee drinkers at work, I like myself enough not to drink black coffee…

 

I want to make some maple creamer.  
 

Anything?

 

yes. I will google it at some point.

I don't know if they have a maple flavor, but I use Toriani syrups and mix with cream for recipes and sometimes to flavor my coffee. I used to by it in bulk from lollipop.com as their prices for the large bottles were cheaper than the small bottles you find in grocery stores.

After 13 years my Cuisinart finally died.  Went to the local cook supplies store and they had a Breville that looked pretty dope.  I am a black coffee drip drinker but I drink 2-3 cups a day when I am not at work.  It's a big deal and I wanted to treat myself.

One week in and wow, this thing is amazing.  I set my bloom time and I've dialed in the proper scoop to water ratio.  

It's fascinating how it can elevate something as simple as a Tim Hortons bean.

My morning brew is an automatic drip my ole reliable Krups. My son recently introduced me to Philz Jacob’s Wonderbar roast. It’s one of the best dark roasts I’ve ever had. For my afternoon coffee,  I generally fire up my Nespresso Vertuo. But if I need that extra bit of goodness it’s a Bialetti Moka Express with a dark roast.

I need a new French press for work.

 

any recommendations?

I've used a Bodum for the last 5 or so years, no complaints from me! I've broken the glassware twice over that time, and they have replacements you can buy if you need to which is handy.

... I am not a morning person so I abandoned my French press several years ago. Tried a nice drip machine and it just didn't cut it. But I found a Ratio Six this year and could not be happier with it. Not quite pour over quality but pretty darned close. It is very pricy but they have sales all the time and for me at least, well worth the cost.

This machine is the real deal. I chose the Brevile only because I needed a replacement that day. 
 

enjoy it!

Well, this is awkward. This is my first time finding this thread.

I am a devout pour-over follower. 

Like, I am obsessed with tinkering with beans, roasts, water temps, etc.

Using a V60 currently. BRCC Chemex is still in the box for now.

I had some really good pour over on accident one time.  I walked into a coffee shop and asked for a mocha… record scratch music stopped the place… 

uh, excuse me sir but we only do coffee here… embarrassing as it was, I said just give me your best.  It still tasted like burnt hair, but it was tolerable.

I must have some sort of cream.  I did a stint on black coffee a few years ago, but realized that I like myself too much to suffer through it.  😂

Too funny! I discovered pour over in an attempt to find coffee that could be consumed without the need for creamer. I was on a fitness/nutrition plan and I was consuming a LOT of calories/carbs via creamer.

Fast forward a couple months and I am back to drinking coffee with creamer. I like air conditioning too, fight me haha!

Not all pour over is created equally either. Had a cup at the Whispering Bean in Albuquerque recently and wasnt impressed at all. Guess I need to get me one of those pelican cases so I can travel with my V60 and kettle.

... For those interested in avoiding sweet in their coffee but find black too bitter, have you tried a heavy cream? I use Straus Grass Fed heavy cream which has a clean taste and takes the bitter out of my Pour Over Ratio Six made coffee.

What no Turkish coffee grinder & pot? I'm disappointed...

 

I have a similar issue as you:

Home: Electric Burr Grinder, Manual Burr grinder (in case power goes out), Electric Kettle, Turkish Coffee, Moka Pot, Pour Over, French Press, Espresso Machine 

Work (all at my desk): 2 Manual Burr Grinders (different settings), Electric Kettle, Turkish Coffee pot and single burner stove top, French Press, Aeropress, Espresso Machine, Milk warmer/frother. 

I've been eyeing a siphon pot, but don't' know where I would put it at this point...

Yea i just found this thread too!! Finally people that have some coffee AND golf interest.

Since i become WFH (work from home) a year ago, i figured i gotta make my own coffee and enjoy it. Ended up investing in a Mochamaster drip machine and a Baratza Encore burr grinder. Signed up for Trade coffee subscription to get some good recommendations and its worked out well. Went with the Mochamaster since its 1 or 2 machines that dispenses water at the proper temperature and certified by some National coffee association. Seemed fancy. 

Typically stopped tinkering and stick with a 15:1 ratio.

This is good timing...I just ordered some intelligentsia (Nicaragua Los Delirios, Ethiopia Metad and Illumination Blend) and also got some free shipping so that's good! 

I like the idea of going heavy cream rather than half & half.  I've been slightly averse to black hot as it's been giving me some pretty good ajada (sic). I never drink coffee with anything in it but the dairy is helping cut the acid.

I’ve messed with Turkish coffee a few times but I’ve never had the “proper” equipment for it. Do have both a fairly modified electric burr grinder, couple manual burr grinders, and I believe I’m getting sent a ROK manual grinder to mess around with as well. 
 

As for the siphon/vacuum pot, they really do make a fantastic cup and are really enjoyable to see work. The cup is somewhere between the clarity of a good pour over and the body of a french press. I need to get back to roasting for myself again, been missing that.
