    Have a Bunn for the morng brew and use a french press with freshly ground beans for the afternoon/evening cup. My daughters friend works at Starbucks and I get a free bag of beans ever two weeks. Usually a dark roast.Good stuff.

    Me too, but I've decided to cut back to one cup a day to reduce the stress to the adrenal gland. I'm probably going to try and go back to being caffeine free.

    I know, sacrilege.

    I can't. I own a coffee company. I'm forever drinking it. I have coffee beans coming out of my ears at home.

    French Press with locally roasted beans ground in a burr grinder.

    Yumm.....

    Back to one cup in the morning though and 2 or three one day on the weekend before a hard training day or race.

    For me it's gotta happen every day, several times a day: that's coffee.
    And being English, I also drink tea as well.

    Wife wakes me up with a large cup of tea in bed.

    I'm not loaded so a humble Cuisinart workhorse gets it done in the a.m.
    A two-cup flask gets me through the drive to work.
    Starbucks deals with the refill at lunch,
    and tea happens again in the afternoon and we're done, unless there's an evening happening, in which case a double espresso is the call.

    At my jacked up 50+ sometimes decaf is blended in.

    Best coffee I ever had was brought back by a friend of a long lost friend from Puerto Rico. (it involved a frog on the packet)
    I ain't seen it again since.

    hell yeah! recently picked up one of these and a capresso burr grinder (my hand hario grinder was cheap as hell but the grinds were simply too inconsistent. could deal with it when making french press but when i tried to grind for the moka pot i ALWAYS had grounds in my cup and it made me sad) and i couldn't be happier.

    I just use one of those cheap mr coffee espresso machines.
    It doesn't really make a true espresso, but it comes out as a strong cup of coffee.

    I'm drinking 4-5 cups a day. Using a local roast right now called Magic from Maddie's Mountain Mud.
    Pretty great.

    For those of you that truely enjoy coffee or would like to get a real buzz with just one cup than I really recommend FRESH coffee. BTW, if you don't know when it was roasted, its not fresh. Most good bean companies will have a roast date on the bag.
