The Coffee Thread

For all your pre- and post-PAW food and beverage recipes. Just because it keeps you alive doesn't mean it shouldn't be tasty.

I'd say that 90% of the time I just take my coffee black. But every once in a while I'm just craving a latte, and it's nice being able to make one for around 70 cents as opposed to paying $4.00 at a coffee shop :gonk:

Honestly -
Enjoy your strong black coffee as long as you can, I know I did.
Now I get to pretend this stuff is coffee. It may be weak with cream & sugar in it, but at least it isn't decaf.
(I feel so sorry for the decaf people. Puts soft pat, pat on the heads)

Coffee talk is like wine talk.
"Zesty, Milk-Chocolate, Graham Cracker" sounds like a smooth cup with 'notes' of the bean.
Now ZombieGramps is wanting to stop at the coffee store for some beans.
Thanks for the prod!
It's been a while since we bought some good ones.

Glad I could help :lol: And it's definitely a tasty blend, I made a couple cups (one with the moka pot, another with the french press) and it's a wonderful medium roast.

Edit: Just to clarify: It isn't "infused" with flavors or anything like that, the flavor just comes from the natural process of roasting, blend origin, etc.

Smooth coffee with biscuity notes sounds delicious

If I'm working nights, I can drink up to a gallon a day. If I have to sleep at night, my limit is a quart. During the week I got to Tim Horton's on my way to work and get a refill in my 16-oz travel mug. On weekends, I make coffee at home. My current kitchen is the size of a postage stamp and I cannot spare the real estate for an electric coffee maker. I've been using the Melitta pour-over cone that I take camping and traveling. However, I have just ordered a stove-top percolator to use instead, because sometimes I want more than a single cup at a time. I buy Kirkland Signature Medium Roast ground coffee and keep it in the freezer.
