I'm new to coffee...6 months in.

I have found that using a percolator is way tastier than a Keurig. We own both. I like it plain and black so a medium to dark roast is best. We use cold, filtered water from the fridge. We just eyeball the water and the coffee grounds...it always comes out pretty good.

One in Scotland, the the other in Kent ,

So the Abby is in disarray

Maybe the games keeper will have some coffee for me before the grouse shoot this morning

I threw my Kurig in the dumpster.....literally. The most inconsistent tasting coffee ever from that ****. Ok one day and horrible the next. I bought a stove top percolator. It took a few test runs to perfect it, but it makes coffee that no ďelectric coffee potĒ can come close to in taste. Iíve never tried the electric version as posted above, but the stove top kind is how coffee should taste.

My favorite in the Keurig, with a little Coffemate creamer. All the Gevalia flavors are really good. If it's not available good ol Folgers is right up there.

I’m usually the only one that drinks it at home so I throw a Starbucks Kcup in the Keurig and go. At work we usually put double the scoops we should. If you can see through the pot of coffee it ain’t strong enough!!

So the way do it is i grind one scoop of Black Rifle or Peetís coffee beans and put it in the press. I like mine ground pretty fine. I get my hot water from the Keurig. Usually just for myself Iíll hit the big cup button twice on it. Puts just enough water in the press to make me a big cup. I let it sit 3 minutes typically unless I want it really strong. Press and pour.

It ain't that complicated. 12 cup maker, fill with water, fill basket 1/2 - almost full of grounds and brew it. If you can see through it it's too weak, add more grounds. Ya can't make it too strong.

I like Community between roast but Folgerís is okay. I used to drink a lot of Dunkiní Donuts coffee (made by same company as Folgerís) when we had them locally. For a couple of years I roasted my own from various beans from around the world. I use Cafe du Monde when making Vietnamese cafe sua da.

But...

Folgerís isnít number one in the USA because of marketing.

Iíll preface by saying Iím a coffee nerd and love the process, technique, challenge and reward of precise coffee brewing, which may sound weird but this is also a bow hunting forum 😅. If you like it muddy and dark, French press is the way to go. Technically light roast drip coffee has far more caffeine (stronger even than most espresso) but lacks the burnt flavor most people wrongly associate with strong coffee which is probably what your wife is talking about. Coffee companies burn their coffee because it creates consistency and itís more difficult to roast coffee in mass from so many different farms and farmers to quality profiles. Therefore itís burned and served in mass and hey it gets the job done. Many large roasting houses see a value in a ďlightĒ roast and offer a variety too. You could French press light roasted coffee and be at a happy middle ground of dark, muddy, unburnt coffee. By the way, flavor in coffee is highly effected by freshness of the bean and grind. Better flavor is had by brewing coffee within 5 mins of the grind and within 2 weeks of its roasting. Thereís tons of local companies, some with great causes behind them that provide whole bean coffee that are worth your dollar. They donít tell you what the ďroastĒ is as it is almost always specific to the bean but itís usually something you would consider a medium to medium light roast.

That sure is a lot of words trying to defend a position.

And I agree with 100% of it.

Like wine tasting, coffee has many complex flavors and the more you roast it to French or Vienna roast, the more the flavors are cook out and all beans begin tasting alike. I would venture to guess that the majority of the public like varying strengths of coffee that more or less mask the taste that you get with light to medium roasts. I fit into that category nicely. Add cream and sugar or other various flavors and you get away from a pure coffee connoisseur however if it taste good to you, drink it.

When I was roasting my own beans, I would say that within hours they started losing some of the nuances of flavor.

But I mostly ruin mine with cream and sugar... because I like the taste.

Never figured this place for a bunch of coffee snobs. The best coffee is from a small town gas station and its like burnt motor oil.

At home its put in whatever k cup I've got and hit the road.

Coffee is like pizza and ***! Even when its bad its good.

I use the keurig out of ease and I am OK with it.
Start the day every day with a 20oz RTIC filled with BRCC CAF with a splash of 1/2&1/2.
The Black Rifle coffee is on par with the better coffees at HEB and elsewhere and it is all Veteran owned and operated. Really good stuff. You want good to taste good coffee? You have to start with good coffee. CAF is some kick azz coffee.

How do you get it from them?

Does it have a bunch of other waste in there as well?

1 heaping Tablespoon per 2 cup line on the carafe. (10 cups of coffee = 5 heaping Tablespoons). I prefer Community dark roast. I'll also drink Folgers 100% Colombian or Dark Silk. Yes, I like strong coffee lol.



My grandfather started me on drinking strong coffee. He made coffee in a drip-o-lator. He'd put enough grounds for an entire pot of coffee. He'd pour in just enough hot water for one cup of coffee. Once that dripped, he'd pour his cup then add the remaining water to the grounds for the rest of the family to have coffee. Coonazz Espresso lol.

I'd sit on the front porch steps with him. He'd pour a little coffee into his saucer to cool it off and slurp it from the saucer. He'd give me a little sip and say "don't tell your mamaw"
