SVenus: Nespresso for the douch-ey win!I have this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5JBNxCzDeQAnd the all aluminum capsules run about $0.70 each. But on this version, the milk frothing is worth every penny.It's the humvee of waste when it comes to coffee making.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: Bunch of pantywaists in here. I grab a hand full of beans, pop them into my mouth and chew them up, follow with a cup of hot water.That's how coffee gets done.
MrEricSir: //and a Nesco coffee roaster
phedex: Pods are definitely not my thing. If anything I continue to go back in time with my coffee consumption, as I've now moved to a percolator. Favorite coffee is millstone columbian, coarse ground. I love the simplicity of the percolator, I could care fark all about the environment though I do love to call out people who want to biatch about the environment while on their third keurig cup of the day at work.
TheRameres: Vlad_the_Inaner: /you can even get a metal filter to avoid the disposable paperThis was the single greatest purchase I ever made on Amazon. I look forward to every 2:00 at work, and get nothing but compliments on the aroma that's created when brewing.Fark this makes me want a cup now.

OgreMagi: I just finished drinking a refreshing expresso drink.
Ker_Thwap: I love the coffee in little plastic pods craze. That way I can continue to mock the "save the planet" generation for such an abysmally wasteful concept. It's awesome reading about all the little justifications people use to do something stupid. Me, me, me!
Aar1012: It's not that difficult to use the reusable cup. Hell, I prefer the reusable because I like how I grind my coffee
TOSViolation: Proof that you're an idiot:You've ever told someone they shouldn't like the taste of something because you don't like the taste of it.
megarian: I've heard there was a secret chordThat David played, and it pleased the LordBut you don't really care for music, do you?It goes like thisThe fourth, the fifthThe minor fall, the major liftThe baffled king composing HallelujahHallelujah, HallelujahHallelujah, HallelujahI don't farking know. Seemed just as relevant.
Popular Opinion: when i was working overseas (wales), the staff got upset that the building management was replacing the nescafe instant coffee with some no-name brand.i couldn't believe they drank instant coffee, every day, on purpose, not because they ran out of real coffee, or were sailing on a boat....but they were right. the cheap stuff was worse.i learned to drink tea. i even was able to drink it with milk and sugar it somebody made it that way.
OgreMagi: Popular Opinion:of course i would like blue mountain all the time....That's the only thing I put in my espresso maker. It's my one great indulgence. In my defense, when I first started drinking it I was getting it at the low price of $50 for three pounds, which really isn't that much more than regular coffee beans. The bastards keep raising the price and I keep buying it.http://www.jablumcoffee.com/product_info.php/100-jamaica-blue-mounta in -whole-beans-16oz-espresso-roast-p-59
aspAddict: she had the forethought to get the reusable filter.
louiedog: I've tried about dozen different flavors from different companies and the only the only thing that's come out of the Keurig that I've genuinely enjoyed was at someone's house who was using good coffee in a reusable filter. Hell, freshly ground cheap Dunkin Donuts beans taste good out of a Keurig. The stuff that's been sitting in those pods for months does not.I get that it's cheaper and more convenient than a coffee shop, but it's also more expensive and less convenient than cold brewing which is my easy method of choice.
whatshisname: Every cup of coffee I'd had out of a pod coffee maker in an office has the flavour of someones Caramel Cheesecake flavoured coffee or whatever the last abomination they brewed in it was. The retain the artificial taste of those flavoured coffees no matter how many normal brews you put through it.
ravenlore: Our office JUST got a Keurig. Like Wednesday. This evening I did buy a dozen pods with which to experiment. If I can get it to brew strong enough that it doesn't become dishwater when iced, I'll buy the reusable filters and my own coffee. The fine line for me is: as a single person who would drink about 24-30 oz a day of iced coffee, which is LEAST wasteful, from both a financial and environmental perspective? A large package might be cost effective at time of purchase, but will go stale. Factory-sealed pods are less likely to go stale, but are expensive and fodder for landfill.
E5bie: Folgers from the drip machine is $0.04 per cup
Landis: Cold-brew FTW. What's your recipe? I use 75g of the most coarsely-ground beans I can get with 650 mL of water. Run through a french press after 8 hours of chill-time yields 500mL of final product (+/-25mL). This is enough rocket fuel for two to three days for me. I really, really like it, but I feel like I could (should) get more than one batch out of the coffee. But then I worry that the second run would be far too weak...
Dragonflew: OK, I think the internet needs to be put on pause for a couple of weeks. I just heard of a cronut a few days ago, and have no freakin' clue coontil I go back and RTFT) what the other thing is.
cptjeff: If you really need single cups, why not just get a kettle and a small french press like the rest of the planet?Oh, and by the way, you're paying more to get many, many fewer brews than you would with either a french press or just making yourself a small pot. Ever heard of a 4 cup coffeemaker?Actually, the real draw for these things seems to be the presweetened instant coffee drinks that you can make. You know, the ones that are basically just that instant cappuccino powder?
johnnieconnie: What is a cronut and twogging!?/too drunk RTFA
Lsherm: legion_of_doo: i have a french press at work, but the issue is grinding the beans (kinda noisy) and also cleaning the thing (because I don't want to clog the sink, so I put the used grounds in the compost bin).You have a compost bin at your office? Doesn't that stink like hell?

Doesn't that stink like hell?California.We have like 4 or 5 different kinds of garbage to sort. Seriously, even at McDonald's, you go up to the trash, and it's like utter madness because you have to read through the garbage instructions so you put the right garbage in the right bin.At the office (not McDonald's. I don't say "Do you want fries with that" as part of my job)... Paper towels, coffee grounds, certain other things go in the (green) compostable bin. Then the plastics & aluminum in another bin. There's the office paper bin. Then there's the landfill bin.(Presumably, the janitorial staff has collection bins for all of that stuff. They could dump every bin into the same garbage bin for all I know.)Of course, the offices I've been in with the keurig... it's one trash bin, and maybe a blue bin for recycles, because fark the planet or whatever./I also have a reusable canister thing for my keurig at home/nuke the whales!
MrEricSir: MrEricSir: //and a Nesco coffee roasterOh, and before anyone asks -- if you want to try roasting your own coffee, check out Sweet Maria's. They sell raw, unroasted beans and have a ton of great info on their site.Also you don't *need* to buy a special roaster, you can use certain types of popcorn poppers, a toaster oven, or even a stovetop. But I wouldn't recommend any of those options if you live in an apartment or condo as they really stink up the place. Devices made just for roasting coffee are a better bet if you care about the smell.
kevinatilusa: I've been pretty happy with the Clever Coffee Dripper[i41.photobucket.com image 300x283]Put coffee and hot water in a filter, wait about 4 minutes, then put the dripper on top of a cup and the coffee comes out the bottom. For cleanup, just toss the filter and rinse out the dripper.

I've had to break out my camping percolator when between the standard coffee makers. It's ok, I don't mind a few grounds up in my grille.[www.ladyandtheblog.com image 213x213]
