    I tend to have instant more often but prefer cafetiére. Milk and 2 sugars.

    I like my coffee like my women




    ground up and in the frezer :p


    on thread, i love my fresh press coffee, n othing like puting in raw beans, and having the entire cup ground and made at the push of a button, here is a link to my coffee pot, and it was worth every damn euro.

    WMF nolonger has a pic of it, but it is the model right below this one.

    I only have my dad's drip coffee machine. Ive never tried anything else. My favorite type is Kona coffee. I dont have it much since my dad usually hogs the machine w/ his stupid decaf coffee.


    Tea is also really good. I like making it really strong, mix in a bit of sugar, the pour it over ice. I hate the overly watery sugary junk.

    all you need is a good grinder, some costa rican beans and a decent 14 bar espresso machine, then a short pull off of a double. proper man's coffee ;)

    these press-of-a-button machines are for pussies :p

    This machine makes a really excellent cofee :rock: I simply love it :thumb:

    Oh, and I like "double" espresso (well, the biggest possible ammount of coffe and the smallest possible amount of water ) without sugar or milk/cream...

    But in hot summer, iced cappucino with vanilla sugar Cheesecake :clap:

    a double espresso is basically an espresso x2

    what youre referring to is a ristretto, which is a single pull from a double load of grounds
    and its definitely the way forward :)

    Actually, tea contains as much caffeine as coffee, it's just released over a longer time period, as opposed to an instant shot with coffee.
    And I'm a percolator fan, but don't always have the time for perc coffee, so most of the time it's either instant or filter.

    Yes, I know :) That is the reason why I put the double in quotation marks :p Call it simply "double espresso" is just easier and it is more understandable description of strong cofee than this Italian name I think :hehe:

    Instant! man how can people drink that stuff. If I only have the option of instant I'll have tea.
    I call Instant Coffee drink (you know like watered down fruit juice is fruit drink).
    Espresso is the only way to go, but if you are at home then a good quality coffee in a stive top mini-percolator or at a stretch a plunger.
