Today, Sept. 29, is National Coffee Day in the U.S. Celebrating?
Nope, me either!. ;-) Nor drinking more than usual. Silly holiday, yes? (Rhetorical ?)
Wondering how other coffee drinkers prepare theirs. Brands, etc. Any special hints. Learned something the hard way. Wine.woot sold some beans; many people said, don't buy this. There are too many; they will get stale before you use them. Didn't listen - bought 8. The last 6 bags were definitely NOT fresh. Lesson learned. I use a drip maker, mostly beans, have a burr grinder. Also have an espresso machine. Current favorite Use the drip machine, not the espresso. Full strong flavor, not bitter. <3
Coffee pot on stove
Already done (Starbucks, etc. machine @ work)
Cream & sugar
Favorite brand? Caffeinated? How many cups? Please share hints, lessons you've learned.
