    Bored: lets try espresso beans in an auto-drip?

    Alright, I was very bored and I'm stuck home in a snowstorm. I decided to try running some espresso beans through and automatic drip.

    Ewwww, to say the least.

    The somewhat dark roasted espresso beans produced a very blan and monotone flavour with a very dry finish.

    Never again, hahah.

    Next time try a lighter roasted espresso blend, and make sure there is no robusta in the blend.
    You want cream and sugar?
    NO COFFEE FOR YOU! NEXT!

    autobrew

    I autobrew beans that I use on my espresso machinee all the time. The only real drawback is the paper filter.

    Out of curiosity has there ever been developed a filter for automats that doesn't absorb the oils so much.
    (P.S. don't try a fine espresso grind unless you want to clean up sludge all day)
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

    In simple, yes.

    Its a "gold-tone filter" and it works with a medium grind suitable for an auto-drip.
