I’m a little late to this thread but has anyone tried the Black Rifle brand?

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.

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.

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


Thanks!

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.

I've been using a chemex and when I had the espresso roast by BRCC I was thinking about getting an aeropress to try and get the most out of the coffee.

If you're a fan of a good cold brew, the Aeropress also does a pretty good job with that. Very quick and simple too.

Throw in some homemade sweet cream and we save a ton of money compared to buying from Starbucks

I just put 2 scoops of coffee in there pour hot water, stir and then let it sit for 4 minutes. Probably not the best way but its better than a regular coffee pot or Dunkin Donuts 🤣 *French press that is*

We ran out of Kcups this past year on our weekend golf trip and they only had french press there, luckily we brought coffee grounds, Have not looked back since. The French press is so rich and creamy.
