I really should try decaf coffee, thanks for giving me the hint. :)

My dad drinks it all the time before bed. He drinks it because he likes coffee but it does keep him up and he has read that people who drink coffee on a regular basis are much less likely to get old age dementia and his dad had that so I think he drinks extra to try and avoid that. lol

Either way, he says the decaf does not keep him up. Worth a try anyways. :D

Off to get a cuppa from the cute young barista at the local espresso shop. New owners, and she makes a smokingly good coffee!

How is it that you can have the same espresso machine, the same coffee beans... well, all things being the same except for the person making the coffee, and you can get lovely velvety smooth tasting coffee from one, and a cup of burnt dirt from the next?

I have heard that the temperature you make the coffee at, the amount of grounds, and then how long you leave the coffee sit and other stuff makes a big difference but I honestly don't know how itnall works.

The water makes a huge difference, at least around here. I always use filtered water, excellent quality beans, and only make enough for one cup , whether just for myself, or guests. If a second cup is desired, I always make a fresh pot.

Hm... I had not considered how much difference the water would make but I could see that now that you mention it. Why only one cup, though? Just proportions of the mix? Kind of like you don't want to triple a batch of cookies, just make three single batches?

Hehe, I see. lol Well, I tend to do that too. I was thinking one cup as in a 6 oz cup which is what most of our coffee pots use. That would take me forever because I drink way too much in a day. haha

A local coffeehouse makes their own clod-brewed coffee. I don't know..... I like my coffee hot and black.

Somehow forgot about this thread.... O_O Coffee is supposed to help your memory... I can tell I have cut back recently! lol


The cold Brew coffee was very good. It's really strong but less bitter. It smells like molasses and has a slight hint of that flavor but only has water and coffee in it... so no idea where it gets that flavor from. lol I like it though.

I do like my coffee hot too, Hanasian. Most of the time I like it hot but every now and then I feel like drinking something cold and I figured it is a good option as opposed to rootbear which has much more sugar than I need. lol

Wow... RootBeer.... don't see that around here. Remember having it a lot when I lived near an A&W in Washington state though.

I have a Delonghi coffee machine here at home and the first order of the day is to get up and zombie walk to it and make a fresh cuppa.

Coffee, first thing in the morning is akin to nectar of the gods.

Really??! O_O No Rootbeer?! Wow... weird. lol I've never been anywhere that didn't have Rootbeer. (Except the occasional gas station that I then decide to stop shopping at. haha But the ones right down the street have it, usually at least one or two brands)


Same here on the morning coffee. I get coffee every morning, though I have cut back on how much I drink because with my job i started here four or five months back we only get two breaks in the day and that includes to the restroom... so my morning liquid intake has had to be reduced and then I just make sure I drink extra (water and coffee) after work when I don't have to worry about it. lol

But then... I used to drink about 17 cups a day.... so cutting back might not have been such a bad thing. :P

I usually have 2 cups of coffee a day. The morning kick off, and if Im going to work I stop and get a Long Black takeaway and nurse it through the morning. If I'm at home, I usually have a 2nd cup with breakfast.
