Hardy-r-r: Anybody recommend a good coffee maker? I'm tired of wasting my money on poor-performing coffee makers. Water never gets hot enough for my liking.


a fetco brewer for drip. For an espresso setup at home for decent results, your budget had better be close to 1500-2000 dollars or you wont yield a shot worth drinking. Your best, cheapest route is either brewing with a clever or pour over method. French press gets good results. If you think coffee tastes bad, youre doing it wrong and 95% of people do it wrong but think theyre doing it right.

Never really liked any coffee I tried. The flavor is just so...bad? For lack of a better way to put it. It's bitter and like alcohol, no amount of added ingredients will remove the foul taste within.

Tea is acceptable---I still prefer water to both, though.

Damn it all to hell. I was so tired this morning, I was not going grind the beans, get machine ready, steam some milk, and the whole business for my beautiful, lovely latte/espresso thing I make this morning. I have been compelled through the power of Fark.

I think I would pay someone to come to my house at 5:30 in the morning to do this for me. I live in the sticks, and there is on place that prides itself on being a coffee house, both times my espresso was luke-warm, with an inch of some kind of syrup in the bottom.

The Ethiopian bunna coffee ceremony is to date the best coffee I've had. The beans are roasted in a hot tin which is brought to the table, wafting the smoke round the diners. Then it's brewed in a ceremonial clay pot and served in small cups with a side basket of popcorn. Dark, rich and smoky but not too bitter. Top stuff.

I started grinding my own beans and buying higher quality coffee about a year and a half ago. I'm ruined. That shiat you buy in large cans pre-ground is just that.

My grandfather drank a pot of black coffee every day until he was in his 80's, then switched to de-caff, and now he drinks a pot of that every day and he's 96. My father is 60, in perfect health, and has been drinking a pot a day for his whole life. Can my family blame coffee for our longevity? Of course! But we probably shouldn't.

I'll have a cup of coffee and think about it, because Coffee is what has made our modern world, and don't you forget it!

I'm the same way. I don't like tea either because, like coffee, it just tastes like slightly flavored water. I do agree that the barely noticeable taste of tea is way better than the barely noticeable but horrible taste of coffee. I'd prefer plain water.

Thanks for the reply:
I rewarded myself by buying a Rancilio espresso machine and Rocky grinder and that's been great. For everyday use I was looking for the optimum taste/convenience package. So far it's the French press and poor-over method. I still can't get that coffe house taste... Must be doing something else wrong.

AbbeySomeone: Yeah, French Press is good coffee. Bodum has a nice stainless steel, double-wall pot that works very well. Can be a pain to clean

A good espresso machine needs to be PID'd for temperature control- A silvia can be PID'd for about 150 bucks and some technical knowledge and a set of tools. A good grinder will run you at least 400 dollars. The rocky is a decent grinder and the silvia is a good home machine for a single boiler machine- if you have the doser model, I highly recommend converting it to doserless so grinds dont get caught in the doser, but once you taste the difference between a rocky and a Mazzer grinder, youll clearly see the difference
.
High quality, fresh beans are extremely important. I also have a Silvia with a PID along with a Rocky. The more I leanred about coffee, I couldnt resist getting a La Marzocco GS3 and a Mazzer Major Grinder. It is a much more expensive set up than what any sane person would ever spend on coffee.
If you really want to see some magic come out of your silvia, try Intellegentsia, Counter Culture, Cuvee, Verve, or Brown Coffee Co, beans. These are some of the roasters in the US who are widely respected in the industry and put alot of effort into the engineering and science behind making great coffee.

Anyways-- all that nonsense is just my worthless opinion. Im a coffee lover and once I had great coffee (which is nowhere near what starsucks or 99% of coffee shops sell), I had an impossible time turning back. Very few places really know what they are doing.

Adolf Oliver Nipples: I'll stick to Mountain Dew. At least nobody will ever change their minds about the health benefits of Mountain Dew, so I have a leg up. Coffee is just a sugar and caffeine delivery system anyway. People will tell you that they drink it for the flavor, but they're lying. They drink it to get breaks at work and to stay awake in their cubicle-drone jobs.


I love Mountain Dew, but I adore coffee. It really does have a good flavor--sharp, a tiny bit of bitterness, very nutty. Try putting a tablespoon or so in a banana smoothie. It's like freakin' crack.

/Not a cubicle-drone
//Coffee depends on how much creamer and sugar you put in. Some people like it black, some people like just one, I put in a fark-ton of milk and sugar. A lot of it is how sensitive you are to bitterness. I can't stand it, so I leave only a little, but some people dote on bitter flavors.
