File 151298439452.jpg - (10.57KB , 275x206 , 275px-A_small_cup_of_coffee.jpg )

I bought a drip coffee machine today from a second hand store. I'd never used on before today. I had some coffee for a French press i used to use til i broke it and made a pot.
I hadn't used the coffee for a few moths and it tasted a little "dirty", I think I need to try a few different brands to find one I like.
I didn't want to be wasteful so I drank the lot, it was nicer than in the French press but it got me quite worked up as since I quit smoking I have cut back to only one cup of instant in the morning.
How do you have your coffee? Are there any particular types of coffee you use?
I like my coffee strong and with some milk and two teaspoons of sugar.

Hello John

I take my coffee pour over with more grounds than you need for one cup. its a simple process but its like a Sunday ritual for me at this point. I can't handle too much caffeine though, it really messes with my head so I try sticking to one cup.

John, I, too, enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and also use instant for this process. I find that it makes adjusting the strength of the caffeine better as well.
Just to make it the complete better living (debatable, I know) through chemistry coffee, I also use powdered creamer occasionally, and always use distilled water. I prefer my h2o sans flourides and plastics.

I always use a drip machine. I make it very strong, almost fill the filter completely and then add about milk to 1/3 of the total cup. Lots of sugar,like three real spoons full.

Whats the dead with Kcups?

Excellent question, John. When the Keurig machines first came out, I dismissed them, assuming they'd die out quickly because it was then an obscure proprietary system to do something that was fairly easy to do otherwise. Clearly I underestimated the public's appreciation for the convenience of having a single serving's worth of coffee pre-measured in a self-contained pod.

I always pour boiling water over my coffee grounds and let it steep for as long as I think is necessary. It makes it very strong and dark, and I don't add anything like milk or sugar. When I feel it's done I transfer to a new cup with a small sieve, the grounds mostly stay in the bottom of the old cup anyway but I like to make sure as sandy coffee is unpleasant.

I've been using espresso grounds lately. I think the dustier grind leads to more particulate making it through my sieve, giving the coffee a creamier texture despite being black. I like it.

Indeed John. Personally I avoid them, for I find them to be wasteful

Very recently I have begun boiling my coffee in a pot. They call it "cowboy coffee". Before then I had used a coffee machine and never saw a reason to stop using it until I ran out of filters and was recommended cowboy coffee which is where you just boil water on a stove and then throw in coffee grounds. I like the taste more, it is far less acidic tasting than my coffee maker could do, and the person I learned it from said this was because boiling brought it to a far higher temperature.
