I'm right with you guys. I got way into it sometime back and got a Quickmill Anita espresso machine, Mazzer mini grinder. Now I also have a Behmor roaster and a Bunn VPR airpot machine. I get lazy on the roasting sometimes and just buy some good coffee somewhere. A good local place in the KC area is Broadway Roasting Co. but I like Metropolis and others as well.

Do yourself a favor... Technivorm Mochamaster. Best 300 bucks you will ever spend on coffee.

Made some coffee in the press this weekend. Made the Cafe du monde. Wasn't a huge fan of that. However with ice and sweetened condensed milk. Holy mother it's good. I brought the press to work with me with some Sumatran coffee. Made it too weak this morning though. I have to get the scoops down.

I use 6 scoops for a full press, FWIW.

Yeah that coffee need the condensed milk the chicory is way too bitter on it's own.

Not at all. I'm used to it. I stop at 6pm to be in bed by 10.

That it will. I go through phases in the summer where I exclusively drink Vietnamese coffee. Cafe Bustelo works well with this method. I like Du Monde in a press, but for Vietnamese the chicory is lost.

I will too. Above all I' am addicted to caffeine. I prefer quality, but I will drink day old drip cold if I have to.

I have a Gaggia Classic with grinder.

One of the best machines I've ever used.

do you have an espresso machine, TxBrew?


edit: just saw that you have a Gaggia Classic. Cool!

I roast my own beans and brew a lot of espresso at home too.

I'd recommend getting a burr grinder. You'll see a big difference compared to other types of grinders. I forget the name of the one I use but it's around $60 and made a big difference in my brews. I also do the french press. Do some googling on burr coffee grinders and you'll get a lot of info.

(re-read my post...I DO have a burr grinder...just a cheap B&D model, though)
