We drink either 8 o'clock Columbian or Dunkin Donut - we both drink it black. I drink 1 cup - dh drinks the rest of the pot. He makes 6 cups after dinner - I drink 1, he drinks the rest.

I was hoping to see a few home roasters in the thread.

This morning was a single origin El Salvadorian Molino de Santa Rita roasted to a City + level. Served hot with a shot of cream.

Decaf espresso only, topped with a little half & half.
(I also use it often in my chocolate baking).

2 12-ounce cups of Sumatran Reserve or Dark Magic or Paul Newman's (Keurig K-Cups) each morning. Each cup has 1 tsp raw cane sugar and 2 tablespoons 1/2&1/2. Sometimes in the afternoon around 4 pm, I may have another cup...but I usually stick with water.

metoo, folgers black silk for every day, extra strong, usually two cups with breakfast, a pinch of sugar, a splash of half-n-half, dripped in a cheapo Mr. Coffee. Lunch sometimes makes me want to siesta, so I often have an early afternoon cup of joe. On weekends, I might pull a bag of freshly roasted beans from the frig for grinding and I almost always drink this black.

I once saw a home-roaster in action. Looks like a miniature chile pepper roaster. The aroma was intoxicating!

Douwe Egberts Pure Gold Instant with milk and 1/4 tsp of sugar. (Everyone always asks me why bother with sugar if you only have 1/4 tsp but I taste it!)
2 cups in the morning and sometimes one at night.
Filter coffee only when I dine out and then I drink it black with no sugar or with a tot of Southern Comfort.

Or the old "boiler pot" at deer camp. Throw in a hand full of coffee grounds per quart of water and bowl the daylights out of it. Not too bad on a cold morning...just don't drink that last swallow....pour it out!!!!

I buy what ever ground, organic, fair trade coffee I can find. And I recently switched over to an "automatic" coffee making system by Cuisinart. For many years I liked to use a 1930's era ceramic drip coffee maker, by Porcelier, made over on the Ohio River. I take my coffee heavy on the 1/2 & 1/2.
