coffee anyone?

Recommended Posts

i had never drank coffee until starting school ...

i have two drawing classes this quarter, so i frequent coffee shops in the city to get my buzz on and knock out some work....

but last time i went i drank something like 96 ounces of coffee in a couple hours and OD'd on caffiene, causing me to be fucked up for a few days, including muscle aches, chest pain, and cold sweats, lol

so ever since then ive laid off the coffee :(

word to the wise, dont binge drink coffee for multiple hours, its not very beneficial to your health

There's nothing in the world that can fuck with the combo of cigarettes and coffee. I quit a few months back but the highlight of my day used to be a cup of coffee and a cigarette in the morning. So damn good....

I've been a coffee geek for quite a few years now - got a Gaggia Classic machine and a Solis Maestro grinder. The key really is having a grinder.. if you have a good machine and no grinder you can't possibly make great coffee. I really underestimated this until I bought my own a few years back.

Sydney is fantastic for coffee (Campos in Newtown being the best) but London really struggles - Monmouth is one of the only places I've found that serves great coffee and has a good selection of fresh beans.

The coffee you buy in supermarkets is so old and stale that it isn't worth buying - get fresh beans from a local grinder if you can and it will make a huge difference although it doesn't make as much difference with a plunger/french press as it does with an espresso machine.

I've noticed you can make quite a good french press, even with coffee that isn't too good, as long as you keep it warm beforehand and use water that is just off the boil (92-93 degrees so that it doesn't burn the coffee).

Great espresso + piece of dark chocolate = :D

I wish I had an espresso machine (like, a decent one + grinder) at home. Not sure of any cafe that has Black Cat right now.. and I can't brew it at home so :(

Anyone know how stumptown's coffee compares to others like Intelligentsia/Verve/etc? I've heard a lot of good things bout it and just realized that a couple of cafés here brew it and I'm not sure whether I should run there now or just go when I'm in the area.

sydney has some great coffee. second only to melbourne (in australia at least). i've been drinking a locally roasted bean at my favourite little cafe round the corner. can't get by on less than three cups a day.

had to give up coffee for a week as part of a study to determine if people can differentiate decaf from caffeinated. for a whole week i had to drink this mystery coffee, i had a headache after the second day for the remainder of the week. decaf fo sho.
