"Enter the Americano."

Non, monsieur gf. Non, non, non, non, non.

Correction immediately called for so referral to the John Dill Dikshinairy, or Wikipedia as you all know it, is forthcoming.

I can understand the confusion. Just blame it on too much coffee and fergeddaboudit.

My brother turned me on to the aeropress awhile back.
He sells them @ his coffee joint in Vancouver

Ask for Alistair, and he'll set you up w/ the 'climber's discount".
He's a roaster, be sure to sample the goods.

I guess zBrown drinks it black as a whore's heart.
Or is that an Angus bull's ass?

As black as one of Weej's sulks?

Good eye Squire Merced -Actually we took the lead from the CEO of Illy, who in a guest spot in the NYT titled "the boss" dismissed the wiki (and correct definition) as "hot brown water". Consider it a subversive attempt to put the coffee back in the swill.

My new post-modern industrial strength Pharos hand grinder. Wow! Didn't know that coffee could be so good - whether aero-press, pour-over, or espresso.

The AeroPress along with Orphan Espresso's Lido hand grinder make an incredible travel setup

Yet what before my wondering eyes should appear
But this little review in my local papeer.

No, acutally, this is from Chowbella, the website: not to be mis-matched with Chowchilla, the city south of Merced, home of all that's good and rare...

Let's count downthe menu offerings from absolute best to absolute worst.
7. Seattle's Best Coffee. If the line at Starbucks is too long, you could do a lot worse than Taco Bell's coffee. Granted they haven't sunk as many dollars into their brew as McD's, but it's hot, full of caffeine, and cheap. If you're feeling fancy, they have vanilla and mocha iced lattes too.
With coffee being the best thing on Taco Bell's new "First Meal" menu, abandon hope all ye who enter here...

When I worked the kitchen crew in Toulumne Lodge in the late 80's there were a couple women who had Pete's mailed in. I wasn't much of a coffee drinker at the time but things change. Now I love the stuff and always look for more robust and flavourful beans. Climbing and coffee the enduring legacy. I think Nita was working there during that time period as well.

Coffee causes cancer. Ironic that he delivers the java to a cancer center.

Is he drumming up business?

I'm surprised that some hoser hasn't waxed effusively about the joys of Tim Hortons wonder brew.

You wanna talk coffee??

Check out the Behmor 1600 Yo!!

I roast my own coffee once a week on my deck, whilst supping an ale.
it's kinda like making popcorn... but cooler. It takes 1/2 hr. of my time.

Get green beans from here: you can choose beans/growers you prefer.
Por exemplo:

FRESH roast... weekly... to your taste... without the trucking, packaging, etc.

Just seems like a good idea to me.

These guys have all the info you need.

Would love to roast my own, however...the other half of the household has put her foot down at the espresso machine and grinder. Maybe someday...

Consolation prize is, my son roasts and lives an hour a way.

Top secret recipe for prospectors' coffee.

1. Boil water.

2. Throw coffee into water; boil some more.

3. (Important) Strain coffee through a sock. For extra flavour and points, use a dirty sock.

4. Drink.

But that's how Tim Hortons stores have always done it. Great rule of thumb for them: Use a fresh dirty sock each day.

Hint: Filtered cigaret butts, though dear, add further "authority" to the cheapest of coffees. Try it. Chock full o' Butts. Clean climbers do their thing for a taste of that nec-toer.
