Given how terribly Starbucks burns the beans they use for espresso drinks, I'm gonna go ahead and guess that the Dunkin Donuts one probably tastes better.

Anyway, I'm drinking an aeropress latte that I made myself with beans from a local roaster who hasn't burnt them into charcoal like Starbucks does. So, I'm getting a kick...

Coffee snob thread? :p ;)

Awesome. You should try roasting your own beans. Once you get the hang of it you'll never go back.

The aeropress is indeed awesome. It makes some good coffee, nearly espresso strength but much more portable and easy to use. Done right, it comes out exceptionally smooth and deceptively strong (i.e. it tastes like it's not as strong [or harsh] as an equal amount of espresso, but it really packs a caffeine wallop). I'm really happy with it. My only problem right now is that I have to have the coffee shop where I buy my beans also grind them for me all at once, as I don't have a grinder. This probably makes my coffee later in the week less fresh and delicious than it should be. I've ordered a Hario Mini Mill Slim grinder and should have it soon, so that will be a problem solved. :D

As for roasting my own beans, I'm not in a living situation right now where that is a practical reality. Still a bit too much of a nomad. Should I finally pick a place and really settle in, then it'll be something I'll definitely consider looking in to.

mamoru: burns the beans they use for espresso drinks


They over-roast on purpose because 1) you need a really strong espresso to overcome all the sugar and fat they dump in those things and 2) over-roasting actually reduces the caffeine, so that you can sell a customer a 32 ounce cappuccino and they'll still need to come back later that day for a pick me up.

I feel like maybe loading a drink that's supposed to wake you up with that many simple carbohydrates and proteins probably defeats the entire purpose of drinking a caffeinated drink.  And you're obviously not drinking coffee for the flavor since all those additions are strong flavors compared to the coffee...  I mean, drink what you want, but why not just start your morning with a milkshake if that's the calorie count you're going for?

Which drink am I talking about?  Both.  Both of them.

// A lump or two of sugar is a modification, a bit of milk is a softener, and a packet of cream just combines the two.  Much more than that, and you should probably look for a different drink, becaue you clearly don't like coffee.  No reflection on your character or anything, it just makes no sense to drink something you don't like just because it's a "grown up drink".  You can still buy soda when you're in your 20s/30s, I swear it's still legal, man.

You've met people who don't guzzle four gallons of coffee before going to work, right?

A lot of coffee drinkers have nice teeth and pleasant I smelling breath...mostly because one or two cups won't do anything you've described. But goddamnit, why not shiat all over people who like coffee?

My general rule is: if all I want is a bit of a pick me up with a good bit of sugar, I'm ok with a white chocolate mocha or other slightly frufru beverage, but if I'm desperate for caffeine to make my body move, I go for either a triple espresso or--failing that--a giant cup of black coffee.

I imported Sudanese kids to tend to my beans. And then I imported these awesome cats from like Indonesia. The kids pick beans from the cats' crap, and for pennies I end up with coffee that might cost fifty, sixty bucks a pound.

What if I'm older than that?  Well, I had a Coke this morning and didn't get arrested so I guess it's okay.

I like coffee too, but I didn't want that much caffeine.

I like my coffee black, like my heart - and none of that coffee shop shiat.  I don't have a coffeemaker at home so I can stand in line at Starbucks or Dunkin and pay way too much for it.

You can get a perfectly decent percolator at Wal*Mart for like seven dollars and a serviceable grinder for another ten.  Probably the overall waiting time is shorter, you'll make the capital back in savings in a week or two, and if you start with beans you don't have to worry about it going bad.

Just... if that was an actual implied request for advice or anything.

// If you're _really_ lazy you can shoot past pre-ground coffee and buy the stuff that's individually packaged in a filter.  It's actually not bad, about on the level of a fresh can of folgers' pre-ground.

// And if you're a fan of planning ahead you can spend something like 50 bucks to get a coffee maker with basically an alarm-clock relay wired to the start button, load it at night, and wake up with a pot made.

I'm guessing that these are made mostly from partially-hydrogenated vegetable oil, palm oil, sugar, xanthan gum, artifical flavors, artifical colors, and possibly a dash of fracking fluid.

So maybe that's why DD customers can order them and still sneer at them thar latte-sippin' liberals?

I no longer drink coffee but nothing served at Dunkin Donuts is edible.  They have slid so far down the shiat tube they're little more than a celebration of the disgusting.  Their new motor oil fried donuts are disgusting, their coffee is disgusting.  It's only through spending a huge portion of their profits in advertising do they stay in business but duping people who don't know better into consuming with swill.

Instant coffee would be better than just about anything DD serves.

God almighty, THAT. Never could stomach their coffee and couldn't get past their pricing. DD is far superior and, as I recall, 7 eleven has a nice pumpkin cappuccino in the fall. Half that and half regular roast is delicious.

I actually picked my own beans the other day. Gonna get 'em roasted up this morning.
