Occasionally I will drink mild brewed coffee but what I love is the Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino! =)

As a Canadian, I am legally obligated to be addicted to Tim Hortons' double-double (2 cream, 2 sugar). I quite enjoy coffee, but rarely spring for the more upscale "gourmet" coffees available at a Starbucks or Second Cup. Usually, I just end up drinking the relatively gross coffee that is provided for free at work.

I occasionally drink coffee. Not on a regular basis, though.

I LOVE COFFEE! Coffee, espresso, caps, lattes, and machiottos.

I'm VERY curious about "Blue Mountain Coffee" that a co-worker told me about last week. Told me it was awesomely good, but also awesomely expensive @ about $40 a pound! Anyone here ever drink it?

^I peruse coffee forums and the like quite a bit, and I've never seen this "Blue Mountain" coffee referenced. That's not to say it's necessarily bad, but usually a coffee worthy of that kind of price tag makes a name for itself. The current most expensive coffee is of the Gesha varietal from Hacienda La Esmeralda in Panama. Certain lots of this Gesha have sold for over $100/pound unroasted! The bulk of it is sold at around $30/pound unroasted, but that is still incredibly high! Many roasters were asking for $100+ /pound for it roasted. I have never tried it, but I'm sure its... good. Worth the price, I doubt it.

Instead of chasing some magical coffee at a ridiculous price, I work on getting the most out of "lesser" coffees. A great coffee, even $100/pound coffee means nothing if it's not fresh. A good grinder is imperative. Also one must mind the freshness of the roast. I've just begun to do my own roasting, and it's fantastic. Believe it or not, I do it in a popcorn popper, as shown in this coffeegeek article.

Anyway, I'm dragging up a two-month dormant thread here but I could talk day and night about coffee. Here's another photo of my work:

The most beautiful cappuccino I've ever poured. Not the best tasting though.

DCA Mochas at Schmoozies are the single best coffee drink ever. Oh my god there is so much chocolate, and it is frozen expresso, so its good for a few hours. I miss my moms starbucks winter blend, I liked it quite a bit. I also love my college's coffee shop and am quite a fan of either java chip on a hot day or a Caramel Mocha on a colderf day.

I was the only one in the family I grew up in (seven people total) that never liked or drank coffee. And now, I'm the only one in our household (of three) who doesn't drink it.

Strangely, though, the blend of coffee and chocolate is actually pretty good, and my favorite flavor of the M&Ms Premium candies is the Mocha one. Now, guess which one they don't make anymore? :angry:

Around this time of year (finals) I become a coffee addict. Lately I've been pouring down 4-6 cups a day which is something I want to back off of a bit.

My partner David got me a French Press coffee maker last Christmas, which I had already enjoyed and learned to use at my friend's home in Sweden who I visited with, just before the TPR Scandi Tour started up last June.

My press takes a coarse grind of coffee beans, and the little thing only makes two med-sized cups of coffee. That's enough for myself, as my partner doesn't drink coffee - at - all, heh heh.

But I like it, it makes having a cup of java a bit more interesting... and the used grinds are compostable!


(And I still have and enjoy my packets of Starbucks instant VIA, dark roast, lol...)
