Coffee Bar - French Press, Pour Over or Perk?


Shankster

Recommended Posts

... Staying in Phoenix for 6 weeks I ran out of the Intelligentsia I brought with me. Good thing because I found some Groundwork Certified Organic coffee that I fell in love with. An Ethiopia blend I enjoyed so much I bought 2 more 12oz bags and brought them home with me. I was very happy to find out I can order from Groundwork online and just picked up some Brazilian and another Ethiopian single source I am excited to try.

Intelligentsia is one of my favorite roasters, also give Stumptown a try if you have not, they are also very good.

... I have stopped at Stumptown quite a bit when I am in Portland for work. Kraft Services uses them on our shoots too.

Santa brought us this last year...I must have been good.

Favorite daily brew? Tully's Hawaiian blend set to strong 10-oz. This thing makes a damn fine cup of Joe! Frother is a bonus that does both hot & cold milk very well. You can also do cold coffees & shots. Very versatile and it kicked my former Breville grind-n-brew directly to the curb.

Stumbled upon this thread while killing some time at work. Love my coffee and all things coffee. Any vacation I go on, the first thing I do is look up some local coffee shops.

 

At home my daily go to for quick and easy is my Oxo Automatic pour over as I can program for whatever time. I was using a Chemex for the longest time but got tired of the manual process before work in the mornings. So I save that for weekends or days off. Also have my old and strong espresso machine. The old work horse Starbucks Saeco Sireno machine. That I use when I'm feeling fancy and want a latte. During the summer I make a lot of cold brew in my Hario coffee pot. 

 

For beans I normally go to a local place here called Mothership Coffee Roasters. They have a few beans that I really love that are more nutty and chocolatey rather some of the beans having a slight fruity profile. I just cant get along with those ones.

I must admit, I have fallen off the good coffee train. Thinking about joining one of those coffee a month clubs. Also thinking about a hot sauce a month club.

I ordered a variety pack from one of the coffee clubs which is what their monthly subscription is and while you do get to try a good variety, you dont get all that much coffee for the price. I would say if you average 2 cups or more a day you'll still need coffee on top of what comes in the subscription to make it through the month. The coffee was great though.

Have you tried roasting your own with some 20 dollar air popcorn poppers? There is nothing like making a batch of coffee that you roasted yourself to whatever profile you like the best...

Yes I did just classically one-up your coffee snobbery.  😎

I've been roasting my beans for a couple of years now. I have one of these:

fresh-roast-sr500-1.jpg

It's basically a glorified popcorn popper, with multiple heat and fan settings and a timer.

When I started roasting beans, I had a friend from seminary warn me to be careful. The only way to take the next step of coffee snobbery was to be like him and go to Africa as a missionary so you can grow your own coffee plants 🙂

I have never even thought to do that. That sounds fun though. I'll have to look into that.

I always wanted one of these. I kept telling myself when my 20 dollar air popper died that I'd get one. 

6 years later and about 100 pounds of coffee since, it's still kicking. I swear it's the best 20 dollars I ever spent. Ha. I dont roast anymore, I just don't have the time but I do love it.

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.

It's all I drink I get it delivered monthly through their coffee club. I selected random so I get a different coffee roast every time so I can see what I prefer.

Yes!! Pulling this one out of Davey Jones’ locker!!!  Black Rifle is pretty darned good coffee, IMO.

Looks like I stumbled onto a great thread... Love the coffee life! I lived with a barista in college who would make all sorts of wacky espresso beans for fun, so we'd all get to drink them. Didn't know what we had until we moved out lol.

Unfortunately our budget is limiting my coffee game similarly to my golf game, but once we get over a few humps I think I'll be trying out some new roasting/grinding/brewing methods. But for now it's relatively cheap whole beans, ground and French press and it's good enough for now!

Tall, dark and very bitter, just like me 🤪

I really enjoy coffee, I use everything, Keirug, french press, pour over drip, it all depends on the amount of time I have and how strong I want it that day, I also get a lot single origin coffee, current I have some good strong Brazilian coffee, some medium roast from Costa rica, some very bitter Kenyan coffee as well as some cafe bustelo for the keurig.

I mostly get full been freshly roasted,and grind it, and yes, I use a hand grinder.

I cant wait to be able to travel to Brazil again, so I can bring some fresh roasted beans from a farm of one of my friends down there.

Black rifle charges 15 a 1 lb bag of coffee beans. I get them shipped to me monthly always changing roasts.

Really liked the BR CAF. I have a very high tolerance to caffeine so it takes a bit extra to get me in the zone. 

If you're a caffeine head like me, another brand that I've really enjoyed is SIN Performance Coffee. Looking past all of the marketing hooplah, it has a nice bold almost chocolate-like flavor with absolutely no bitterness or acidity. It's finely pre-ground (I know, I know..) and is very firmly packed so you're not getting an airy 17 oz pack. I like the fine grind for the Aeropress or French Press. I usually find that 1 cup is good to get me through most of the day with no crash or jitters.

DISCLAIMER: I'm extremely new to the world of coffee. Just started drinking last year to help kick the 2-3/day Rockstar Habit (complete success BTW). If there are any other brands, roasts, regions, or bean types that offer a higher than avg caffeine content AND taste good, please share!

Use the Joe Rogan podcast code and get a free mug if you do. Been drinking their stuff a while, I select my own roast every delivery because if you order at the wrong time you’ll get the same delivery every 2 weeks. I order from them bimonthly and buy a couple other bags from local places as I drink a LOT of coffee.

I’ve got 3 French presses now, a couple pour overs and an aero press. The aero press is the favorite currently as it cuts the oils and removes any grit so it’s just smooth coffee. I’m wanting a vacuum brewer next.
