    Coffee drinkers.....what you got on hand?

    For years I drank crap with lots of cream & lots of sugar. About 5 years ago, I started developing blood sugar issues, took me two years to go to black coffee. Now, I have no idea how I ever drank it loaded up with all that stuff! LOL. Right now I've got some naturally washed & organic Peruvian Utcubamba & Mexican Altura in the fridge...both ground for a french press. Have not started grinding my own beans yet. The Altura is my all time favorite. It's low acid, smooth & chocolaty.....in fact, I swear to god that when it is luke-warm it literally tastes like chocolate milk! Especially when I put a cinnamon stick directly in the tea kettle. The Utcubamba is also low acid but much more fruity with subtle notes of cocoa. I'd say my other favorites are Ethiopian Harrar and Indonesian Blawan Estates....both are amazing. What are your favorites and why?

    I've turned to straight up espresso to avoid additives and it's less filling.

    I just use the Zavida brand beans from Costco since most of my employees prefer that one. Double long espresso (black) - we use the Delonghi Magnifica, excellent machine.

    I have a Ratio 8 and an Elektra T1 for espresso based drinks. Recently I added a new much more affordable "brewing" device. Buy yourself an ISI whipping siphon and nitrous chargers. Add 100g of your favorite coffee (grind for French press) 500g water and charge with two nitrous chargers and put it in the fridge for two hours. Bleed off pressure and strain using a Chemex style filter. Use deliciously smooth coffee however you like! Dilute with water around 50/50 or to your taste

    Does it aerate?

    I use a breville barrista express for my morning lattes, great machine with a built in grinder. As far as coffee goes is use my black rifle - apache gunship. Good combo with the machine no extra addatives

    I roast my own beans as I need them, so they're always fresh. I used to mainly do french press, but a few years ago I dug a Krups Mocha Brew out of the closet and I actually like it a little better. It steam brews the coffee under pressure, so it's kind of a hybrid between drip and espresso. Roaster is a Behmor 1600, which has a smoke suppression system, so I can roast indoors with the range hood fan on and not set off the smoke alarm as long as I don't burn the beans Charbuck style. I have about 40 lbs. of green beans on hand:

    Ethiopia Kayon Mountain
    Taaroo Lot 2

    Ethiopia Shakiso
    Kayon Mountain Farm

    Organic Colombia
    Tolima AGPROCEM
    Omega Speedmaster Pro 3570.50
    Omega SMP 2255.80 "Electric Blue"
    Omega SMP GMT 2538.20 "Great White"
    Omega Planet Ocean 42mm 2500D
    Citizen Royal Marines Commando
    Orient Triton
    Precista PRS-14

    Initially, it is highly aerated like a soda but once filtered it's flat.
