I Live Coffee.

Early morning mug (16 Oz. or 2.6 servings) is currently a Ethiopian Harrar coffee brewed with a Clever Immersion Dripper.

Early afternoon is usually a double espresso (ristretto, normale or lungo). So, that's another 2 servings.

Overall, I drink about 4.6 servings of coffee per day.

I roast my own. I buy raw coffee beans from around the world ( coffeebeancorral ) and I roast them in a roaster. I've honed my skills and it's all I will drink now. I buy it for about $7.00 a pound, roast in small batches, and grind daily after it has set-up about 24-48 hours.

It's fun, and it's the best ( and freshest ) coffee out there.

The process isn't difficult but it is tricky, like anything you cook it's all about time and temperature.

Hit me up if you want to know more I'm glad to share.

Dunkin’ Donuts original whole bean, ground just before brewing at home. I work nights so I’m usually brewing twice a day, sometimes three.

At work I’ll drop at least one pot of Dunkin‘ Donuts premeasured vacuum packed brick of coffee which I love. Someone else usually makes another pot of something else at some point during the evening.

Cups a day? I’m afraid to count but way too many to admit.

A splash of milk only, usually what’s on hand without sugar or sweeteners.

Mmmmmmm. Love it. I’m scared to see what my insides look like.

I used to hate coffee, and it took me a while to realize why. Everyone around me that drank coffee would add creamer, sugar, etc to their coffee so I would try to do the same. I could never get it to my liking. One day I decided to drink it black and it blew my mind. I’ve loved coffee ever since.

I have a cup every morning and occasionally a cup in the afternoon.

I buy whole beans from local roasters, grind it myself, and use an AeroPress.

If I buy coffee while I’m out, I go Americano.

Grinding it yourself just before brewing makes a huge difference.

Some of the really good coffee begs to be consumed black. Depends on my mood but I’ll occasionally drink it black, Especially if there’s no milk at work ;)

I think Mr "Jasoon "is bot,,,AI doing market research. There's some awkward sentences in the post and he just seems overly interested.

Ha! Now his original post is gone in the time it took me to write my last post.

I take three cup of coffee per day. I don't usually like it, but I have no choice since it keeps me awake during the day. I have this problem of fatigue at work and I hate it. Coffee helps me alot.

2 cups per day. Lavazza is good and affordable, grind it fresh and add creamer and stevia.
Perks me up in the morning as well as gives me the health benefits.

French Roast is what roasters label coffee when they 'miss-the-mark' on what they are looking for. Nobody purposely roasts for that achievement. It's just over the line of Full City Plus and is the beginning of the darkest roasts. The darker the roast the less caffeine and the less original flavor it will have.

I was a fan of French for years until I started roasting my own and discovered the different subtle flavors of the same bean roasted at different levels. Light Roasts have the most caffeine but the taste is too light for me. Medium roasts, those just into 'Second-Crack' produce the best overall flavor of the region of the coffee I roast.

The difference between Full City Plus, French, Italian, Vienna, Expresso is a matter of seconds..

After roasting you have 4 minutes to get the bean to a temp below 100 degrees, and then bag it, occasionally squeeze the CO2 out of the bag as it matures ( over the next day or two ), and then grind and enjoy keeping the bag sealed and tight. Oxygen is no friend of coffee.

I also find large differences in the taste depending on the grind. My hand-grinder will produce a different taste than my electric grinder, so upon first drink of a batch if it doesn't suit me I switch grinding methods.

I love the stuff LOL... and roasting your own will give you a new appreciation for good coffee.

Mmmm, coffee. Started long ago with flavored coffees, then flavored creamers, (yeah I know), now on to enjoying it in small batches, whole-bean black (no creamer) and prepared various ways-- Espresso machine, french press, moka pot, and pour over.

It's amazing how the various differences on how coffee is prepared can also have an affect on the same set of beans-- Daily it's mostly coming from our Breville infuser machine that's been going on strong for the past 4 years with daily use. The other methods have been reserved for special occasions (like when we have guests at the house).

Speaking of, be right back (gonna make another cup) :)
