I use a combo of grocery store ground coffee in my Bunn commercial when I make a 1.5 liter air pot. Had a cup this morning from a pot I made late last night while I waited for the water to come to temp to brew my latest 3 bean home roast blend (Rwandan, Sumatran, Brazilian).though I enjoy freshly roasted and ground coffee I still enjoy a cup of basic Folgers.
There is a difference but I enjoy the taste of just about every coffee I have ever tried.
Herein lies a fundamental secret in life. The capacity to make lemonade out of lemons,
ding ding ding ding ding..... we have a winnerI must say, I can't believe how much of a difference fresh beans make. I made a pot this morning in my freshly descaled coffee maker. And even in that thing it is like heaven compared to what I am used to.
A pound a week? Really?! That lasts me almost a month drinking a well packed french press every day.ding ding ding ding ding..... we have a winner
Hopefully you have a specialty roasting house close by so you can pick up a pound every week and always have fresh beans.
that's the trick - turnover. Man, I've had some gas station coffee that had been sitting on the warmer for hours. Should of bought a Mountain Dew instead.I can drink any coffee with enough cream and sugar. I prefer though to keep my beverages 0 calorie and thus like my coffee black. Actually, that's how it all started. I was cutting all the sugar out of my diet and had to find coffee I could drink black and well, one thing led to another.
I certify that McDonald's does have good coffee. Their drip coffee is better than starbucks drip coffee, by far. By nature, since so many people get the coffee from mcdonalds, their coffee will more often be fresh.
