I've been starting the day for the past decade with a French press and Peet's coffee. My wife bought me an Aeropress for Xmas and I was more than a little skeptical of it's claims. Not anymore. It makes an incredibly clean cup of espresso in minutes, without the cost or maintenance of a decent espresso machine.

vermont coffee company, light roast although just placed an order for 5# of dark roast.

typical scenario is i make 4-5 cups for my wife and i, and end up drinking them all.

yeah I know, I'm putting in a plug for a local business, but they really do roast the best coffee I have ever had.
And the prices reflect that, but I still would recommend ordering some.

For me at least it is to avoid excess sugar when I am not riding...I drink a regular coke if I'm on a hard ride or if I've just finished and need somevquick sugar.

+1. I bought it because it is so much easier to clean than a french press, so I was ecstatic when it actually made a better cup of coffee.

More VT goodness http://vtartisancoffee.com/

The Kenya Peaberry is my current fav. They have it on tap at the Charlotte Brick store and it's been the main motovation on several rides this fall/winter.

My problem is that caffine dosen't do a thing for me. I can fall asleep minutes after a bed time 16oz. I love the stuff tho......

Vacumn brewing, fun to watch and makes great coffee.

Sunday I did a 30 minute crit race and drank probably 6 cups of coffee for the day. I was hyper as hell all night, it was great.

Just drank a scoop of whey and water, then ate some banana chips. Yeah, it has nothing to do with coffee, but I feel pretty jacked up right now.

Can't wait for round two after lunch. This morning's cup was insufficient to clear the sluggishness and headache brought on by the mild weather.
