Still no coffee for me! 14 days now! I will drink it again eventually but not for a while and probably not everyday like I have been.

I average one or two cups a day, two if I have one in the morning, one if I only have one at night.

Still, you didn't say why you were torturing yourself this way??

Well, Mav...yesterday I had a cup but decided it was a one day thing. No reason other than I think I can do without it. I don't like the idea of having a caffeine addiction. So if I have it every now and again I think thats much better for redkitty. :)

This morning I am enjoying my coffee in one of my new cups I purchased this past weekend at Simon Pearce. Tastes so much better now.

When I work on weekends I am lucky to have acess to an espresso machine and all sorts of goodies to add.... but usually I just make myself a strong Americano....
However nothing beats a mug (or 8) of plain ol French Roast in my own house on Monday morning!!!

I'm with Suziequzie on this. I make a pot in the morning (just about now) so it's ready when I have finished my morning ablutions. I use an old Revere Drip-O-Lator, which makes eight 5-1/2 oz. cups. Four mugs. It will disappear over the course of the day. Plus coffee "out". I roast twice a week, so it's always fresh.

Ick! Just tried the Folders Gourmet Java Bold and didn't care for it. Do the other flavors from this gourmet brand taste as bitter? I will stick to Starbucks Costa Rica Tarrazu for now.

I can't remember if I asked this before (maybe one of those senior moments) but what do you use to roast your beans and what technique? I want to start.

I have a FreshRoast 8+ that I found on CraigsList for $20, I think, and a recently scored Caffe Rosto, found in a thrift store for $4. Both are good, both are no longer made. They do small batches, which is good, because I like to blend roasts for a more complex flavor, and only roast 3 days ahead. I get raw beans generally from Sweet Maria's, online, and am partial to a Nayarit Rustico from Mexico. Fair trade, shade grown, organic and dry processed. Both roasters use fan-forced hot air, and both have automatic timers. And both can frequently be found for cheap on eBay, if you do not have access to good second-hand shops. Sweet Maria's is also a wealth of information on coffee, roasters and roasting. Home Coffee Roasting Supplies -Sweet Maria's

I do like my coffee

Purchase the whole bean 8'oclock (in the red bag) or on occasion Gevlia
Breakfast Blend. We grind in an old fashioned coffe grinder placed on our wall in the kitchen. DRINK MY COFFEE BLACK.

bethzaring, your coffee pot ceramic is very attractive. Going to check at Garage Sales...perhapse I will locate one.

I use chem x glass pot. Or a Braun Coffee Maker.

Remember: the coffee grounds are great for acid loving plants...work into the soil.
