I love coffee, but this sounds repulsive.

I had this book about the "old west" that contained several amusing sidebars...things like where certain folk had got their nicknames from, the story of how Jesse James died...good book, lots of good information.

I present, from memory, the coffee recipie given:

Dump out coffeepot.
Fill coffeepot with water and coffee grounds.
Put on the fire to boil.
Wipe off horseshoe.
Throw horseshoe in pot.
If it sinks, boil for another hour.

I make my coffee with Scottish oatmeal... it can also fix cracks in cement

If you're talking to my SO, that's how I make coffee anyway.

If this blows your mind, your doors of perception could probably use some new hinges.

Coffee I can eat? Finally! Too bad I've been consuming inedible coffee all these years, I'd better go see a doctor or something.

Why not just take a regular cuf o' joe, poke a stick in it, and freeze it?

Coffee-sickle
Anyone?

I don't want 111-year-old coffee.

I like my coffee like i like my women. Strong, bitter and without somebody else's cream in them.
 
2006-09-12 1:38:04 PM  
Sounds like it would be difficult to mix in sugar/milk, the only things that make coffee worth ingesting in the first place.
 
2006-09-12 1:38:09 PM  
I like my coffee like I like my women.
Ground up and in the freezer.

Coffee jell-o. I've got this mental image of a wide-eyed twitchy Bill Cosby trying to sell the stuff at 300 words per minute.
 
2006-09-12 1:39:38 PM  
Sounds like he mixed in one of those liquid thickening agents used in hospitals when someone cannot take liquids but still wants that drink - especially coffee.

Doesn't sound innovative at all.
 
2006-09-12 1:39:48 PM  
didn't the swedish chef come up with this in the 70's?
or did his coffeee eat you?

It sounds like they are describing essentially coffee mousse. Which kind already exists, as well as other edible coffee products such as candy, ice cream and gelato.
 
2006-09-12 1:42:30 PM  
Am I the only one who thought dirty thoughts about the term "extract it?" I thought the chef was talking about an advanced step in the coffee comsumption process.
 
2006-09-12 1:42:50 PM  
submitter: "When you first extract it, you can literally hold the cup upside down and it won't move"


Haven't these people ever had coffee at a truck stop?

submitter must not be familiar with the expression: "pours like used motor oil"
 
2006-09-12 1:43:17 PM  
I can just imagine this stuff eventually showing up in the supermarkets. And me walking around campus constantly jittering from all the caffeine... Portable coffee that I can shove into my backpack? Heh... That boys and girls is heaven.

I prefer mine black as midnight on a moonless night.

On behalf of the Starbucks lawfirm of Screwit, Cheetum, Lyer and McBastard, I feel I should point out that our client invented that very beverage... about... um, 2 years ago *yeah that sounds good*. As such, we own the exclusive rights to it, any marketing or liscencing rights and all monies earned from the use of said substance.

Don't make us get all tortey on you.

peachfish: It sounds like they are describing essentially coffee mousse. Which kind already exists, as well as other edible coffee products such as candy, ice cream and gelato.

It comes in a spraycan, though, so it's more like coffee EZ-Cheeze.

Feh. Been doing this for years. S'called "instant".

ftfa Espesso consists of espresso and an ingredient the company won't divulge..


we'd like to know exactly what that undivulged ingredient is before indulging.
 
2006-09-12 1:57:37 PM  
The Good Urth Cafe has the best espresso. It clings to the side of the cup with the viscocity of blood. I had to be peeled off the ceiling with a spatula.

One brand is called ThickenUp.

czarangelus: The Good Urth Cafe has the best espresso.

Is that in DeadLand? If so, what street? I wouldn't mind testing that out on my liver next time I'm spring diving near that area. (I ask becaue your profile says you are at Stetson -- I'm assuming that is the Stetson U in DeadLand, FL.)

I like my women like I like my coffee... in a styrofoam cup with a spoon in it.
 
2006-09-12 2:05:59 PM  
So, it sounds like they made chocolate mocha pudding without the chocolate.

thespindrifter: Is that in DeadLand? If so, what street? I wouldn't mind testing that out on my liver next time I'm spring diving near that area.

No, it's in Los Angeles. I haven't really found any stand out good coffee places in DeLand. But this town is such a tourist trap - you know how it is.

Hrmmm....I wonder how it compares to the red-eye I'm drinking. I just got a little tinnititus and things seem to be vibrating slightly.

Which is weird. That usually doesn't happen. Could be because I drank what was left of yesterday's second red-eye before I got this one.

What is this coffee jelly? I get this w/ milk tea all the time.

yeah, right...have you ever chewed one of those things? they taste nothing like coffee.
