No more Starbucks for me

  1. Looks nice. Good for you.
     
  2. Looks like a great setup. Now, if you want to start roasting your own beans, just let us know. It is a lot easier than you might think, and can be done in a cast iron pan.

  3. That’s pretty sweet!
     
  4. Welcome to the real world of coffee.

  5. Coffee has gotten way too complicated in the 50+ years my wife and I have been drinking it. When we get out of bed in the morning, all we want do to push the bold and start buttons on our Cuisinart. I have it ready with pre-ground Starbucks French Roast (extra scoops) before we go to bed. For a mid-day/afternoon jolt, we have a single cup Keurig. We usually prefer Death Wish or Tim Horton Dark pods. After supper is another quick Cuisinart pot. KISS.
     
  6. I'm gonna need more money. The funny part is I'm happy with the folders single pack instant stuff. The first cup this morning was good. A little strong. I like it.
     
  7. There's no such thing as bad coffee. But on the other hand, there is definitely such a thing as superb coffee.

    Try theirs.
     
  9. Oh, but there is. The worst coffee I have ever had was from a university coffee shop. I think they burnt the beans or something. I kept dumping cream and sugar in it to try to salvage it. My friend thought I was being ridiculous so she took a swig of it and agreed it was the worst either of us had ever tasted. I never went back to that coffee shop again.

  13. Hey Dick, your appreciation of coffee is as good as your appreciation of razors. You didn’t waste a penny and I am duly jealous!
     
  14. Thanks. The little one gets hot chocolate from it so everybody wins . I'm lucky I got out of the store before he showed me the high end stuff.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for that and where did you buy it?

    We're in the market for a new coffee machine as we found out ours went kaput when we returned from our cruise earlier this week.

  16. Williams Sonoma $600. I stopped at Starbucks daily for a few bucks so I should be even soon. It works great . No regrets.

    Our DeLonghi superautomatic has become a member of the family.
     
  18. Our Delonghi has served us well. Enjoy REAL coffee.
     
  19. This thread has inspired to finally buy myself a new French Press. I keep breaking my glass ones, so I bought a new one from Starbucks that was all plastic. It’s the lowest I’ve ever gone as a coffee snob. It’s awful! It tastes like plastic and there’s always grinds in my coffee. I get my new Williams Sonoma all stainless shipped by the 19, and I’m stoked! There’s a 20% off sale and free shipping sale FYI.

    I’d have loved to get an espresso machine, but I keep buying knives, rocks and ammo. Sigh.
