    Coffee appreciation thread...

    I'm sure there's been one of these before, but I just wanted to thank coffee for making this morning, and this whole week possible. Coffee, you're the best!

    I'm sure she stills read all the posts and attempts to moderate and delete them.

    The perfect amount ground to perfection in my Capresso Infinity Burr grinder, then plopped into my press pot to be steeped by the freshly boiled (and then backed off boil about 10 degrees) filtered water. Steeped exactly 3 minutes and immediately poured into drinking cups or a thermal carafe to savor later.

    Yeah...I likes me some coffee.

    You're making me very needy of another cup.

    I miss Koffee. She wasn't cut out to be a Mod, but she did a LOT of really good posts before things got crazy.

    Having gotten that out of the way... I like ze French Press, and those foil one pot bags. You put ze bag in ze press, and voila! You have ze coffee, no?

    Of course, finding good coffee in one pot pouches is the tricky part.

    The Eastside Blend is pretty good. If you are willing to grind,tamp,swish, swirl and dance a jig BEFORE you have coffee, you can do lots better... but this ain't bad.

    Filled with Black Lightning (A dark, bold, but not burned roast I buy from Daily Dose), ground fresh every morning with my conical burr grinder, mixed with 188 *F water, infused for precisely four minutes, then poured into a nice, clean ceramic mug while inhaling the crisp, eye-opening vapor. Every last drop is savored as a delicacy. Such a perfect, awakening beverage commands the highest respect.

    188F is too cold. It needs to be about 195-200F.

    Unfortunately, 188F is the hottest water I can get without shuffling water from one goblet to another. As you can imagine, my stainless steel star****s press (a Bodum brand press with Star****s engraved in it... Can you tell I don't like star****s?) would not fare well in the microwave.

    When using hotter water, I reduce the amount of infusion time. My method does make a pefect cup of coffee, though. Yes, I am aware that more thorough extraction would happen at a higher temperature and that there's no substitute for it (not even an extra minute in the press). such is life.

    You should see the disgraceful swill that my peers attempt to call "Coffee", though.

    Folgers Classic Roast and Mr. Coffee machine. Spoon what looks to be close to right amount of dried brown flakes into basket. Pour in some water. Hit green button. Wait for it to hit whatever is the perfect temp for model CG12. When gurgling sounds stop coming from break room, go in and pour cup of coffee. Add sugar, go back to desk and surf foo.

    Aaaah.....I see. You did mention a 4 minute infusion. I only go with about 3 minutes.

    I know the feeling. I won't even drink the swill at work anymore. Usually Folgers in a $10 pot.

    I burr grind and french press every morning, but I go with a 4 minute steep and about 200 degree water. I also tend to use heaping scoops instead of level. I like my coffee strong in flavor but low in acid. I've been buying my beans from Midtown Marketplace here in Eugene (former Triomphe). They're house and sumatra are both very good.

    I can't (won't) do the drip machine stuff, it's too much acid and not enough flavor. I'd rather skip a cup than drink that stuff, it's gut rot in a cup.

    For those of you who haven't tried a press, give it a go. The coffee is stronger in flavor and much, much smoother. It's the only method of coffee brewing I can comfortably put on an empty stomach. Those of you with high cholesterol should note that press coffee, for whatever reason, is higher in cholesterol than other brewing methods. I'm not sure where I heard that, but I'll try to find a source.

    Mocha is named after the port at Mocha, but Yemen coffee is said (I agree) to have a slight chocolatey aftertaste. But the name "mocha" is not so named because of anything to do with chocolate.

    That being said....Peet's Mocha Java is one of my favorite coffees.
