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.

OK, I'm back.

Drinking drip Defiant Bean Roaster's Blend X right now (http://www.defiantbean.com/);.

But I do everything. From Turkish to Nescafe (not the US stuff, but the old school kind that you seem only to get overseas... it has it's place when when you're getting down and dirty, looking over the abyss about to go into Gonzo/HST/Neuromancer mode, or maybe you deep in already). But kids, don't try this at home!

Yeah, yeah, the snobs will get all over me for that, but I'll wack 'em with my dear, sweet lady friend Pavoni (to get her to produce the right stuff, you gotta romance her... so Italian). And if you give her crapola, then her buddy, the Gaggia MDF is gonna help you sleep with the grounds in the compost heap... get my drift? Ha ha!

Mmmm.... coffee....

Thanks J-friends tell me it is significantly superior to french press and with not grit -i wonder if a guy could do one with no paper filters just another micro filter on bottom end? better for the road and all that

There's a permanent stainless steel filter that you can get for them. I haven't tried it personally but I've heard they're good.

Speaking of coffee.....The Black Sheep in Bishop has moved to Main Street, right next to Wilson's....



MH, I have always just let the grounds settle to the bottom of the pot and poured it off the top. Still have dry socks that way...

hey there say, mouse...

a neat taco friend sent me some:

kick ass coffee (that's the name, not me being 'un-neebee-like)
and well, seems it lived up to it's name...


the ol' coffee cup--a neat glass masonjar one, with a handle--now, sorely missed--seemed to kick on out of hand, as i tried to set it down for to
fix a windchime, outside (not the one from you, john, it's a-okay) AND:
WELL, I LOST the rest of the coffee to the cement sitting-stone below, and, to the dirtiness of the grass--after but a few lovely sips...

yep, lost the ol' cofffee cup, too (as to the read, above)...

wow--powerful stuff and not even whiskied-up...
:)

well:
it's from 'kicking horse' company(?)
and roasted in canada...

aha aHA!--northern hard-trail-needs, NEED robustness...
THAT explains, it, :)
:)

yep, for sure, that may explain it...

good to last drop if you can get it...
and strength for whatever hardships the ol' trail offers,
even if only fixing windchimes... :)


*which by the way are swinging wide-and-wild now--not due to
fighting-off gettng fixed ,mind you, but:

winter storm, first of season,
is a'blowing in right about now...
yep--i need some powerful coffee, though i'm staying indoor today:
one MUST brave the ol' yard, at least, for the ol' pup-dog's
needs...
*she likes company, as she THEN thinks to get
play time after her 'needs' are done...

seeems like 'play time' is an equally needed need...

let's hope the kicking-ass-type of coffee (by name only, not an uncouth neebee)is powerful stuff in a more subtle way, this time... ;)
being that i just love it...:)



well--happy good supertopo morn to you, and may you enjoy
a good cup of coffee.. any or all of you, (unless you prefer, tea, orange-juice or coacoa) :)
...
and, may--the fellowship of family, friends, or just 'being
ready to just due a job well done' for some good or decent pay, be yours...
say--or even some holiday bonus pay, ;)

* can then buy some of this powerful coffee, ;)
