Here is a place to come... share, recommend and enjoy the majesty that is JOE!

For me, Coffee is a way of life, a passion that caress's me to life in the morning then holds my hand as I labor about my day till alas she kisses my lips to lull me to sleep when the shadows fall over me.

Ahhhh... Coffee, black gold, java, liquid energy...
Come, talk and enjoy a fresh hot cup today!

I only like them when they taste like liquid candy bars. (About 98% flavoring Very Happy ) Mmm... coffee...

Gas station coffee is the BEST. They get all the flavors just right. Plus it's insanely cheaper then anything Starbucks.

I hear ya, Vain. My body is addicted to caffeine, but I generally don't drink coffee. Occasionally I'll get a mocha (white chocolate, mmm), but most of the time I'll just get something like a glass of milk with a shot of Irish cream, a frappacino, or whatnot. Which reminds me of a thread I need to make.

I make a half pot of coffee each day at 2pm... a full pot takes like 3 scoops to make, well I make my 2pm HALF pot with 4... but thats not all.

Once it's brewed I fill my cup just shy of the rim 2 cm or so. Then, yes then... Oh God yes then... the last bit is filled with pure cane sugar... LOTS OF SUGAR...

So thick, so rich, so balck, so so sweet... I gotta go... I feel funny now Wink

What about turkish coffee, Biff? I've tried it a few times and thought it was definately an interesting experience (plus there's actually an art of divination performed by turning over your nearly empty cup on a napkin and examining the circle of grains).

OK... I had no Idea the Turk’s made a special coffee, and I have been in country.

Think there's a place to buy it on-line that I might get my shaking hands on some and cure this retched longing you now place upon me?!?!

I'm not sure, but I think you might need a samovar to make it (though I imagine a percolater might work). Heck, dunno. The best place to get it is at a mediterranean/mid-eastern restaurant.

Hello Infelice, I don’t think I have responded to you directly in this forum yet, so let me do so now… You wonder if I like COFFEE… Yes, yes I do… But I like it best when shared (first thing in the morning) with someone I care for.

A samovar, Question Silver little anti gravity thing with 3 parts and 2 gaskets where the water is at bottom, grounds in middle and final brew atop? Found in most kitchens along the coast line of the Mediterranean sea... Question

If so, I have two... the petite and the Jumbo!

Now all I need is the Turk blend... *lips moist, tongue quivering and hands mulling over and over themselves.*

I just adore java. I have worked in three different cafe's as a barista(one of them Starbucks) and I have a Starbucks' Barista Aroma coffee maker that I put to work every morning. I used to have a little espresso maker but it was a cheapy one and I had to retire it about a year ago.

My favorite plain coffee is the medium bodied Sumatra Mandiling from Starbucks. Folgers makes a nice breakfast blend as well. And then there is Vanilla Nut from Millstone. Whenever I get the cheap gas station coffee I always load up on Southern Pecan and I take a few extra home with me Razz

I used to love Mocha Valencias also. They are great iced. I miss making home made mochas. Maybe a new cupaccino machine will go on my wish list. Great topic Biff.

Hers my favorite blend. I have to make it myself.

I love French Roasted coffee... but it is too week.
I love Community Betweem Roast (A louisiana blend) It's rich and full flavored but it is too barky!

So one day, I just mixed had enough, and put them both together... WOW... it rocks!

And Hellfire, sounds like you have skills in the Joe house. When I retire, I want to open a restaurant. Well that’s half the building... the other half will be a Coffee/Cigar/Desert/Blues Bar. Maybe you could manage that half for me.

Coffee is a morning drink for me. I only drink it black. On an average morning I might have 3 cups. I'm not very picky about what brand I drink, but I must admit that I'm getting fond of the coffee from the Dunkin Donuts shop in the office building.

After about 10am I'm done with coffee for the day. I'll drink ice tea or soda then.

Yep, that sounds like it. Two, eh? Now there's a man who loves his coffee.

And suddenly I'm reminded of Jon Stewart and squirrels.

Sure just send over that private jet every morning to get that 800 mile trek to work out of the way and I will gladly be there with bells on. Wink
