    Rate my coffee stuff

    Hi everyone -

    Well, I've been drinking coffee for a long time but have become a bit of a snob over the last four or five years.

    Unlike my mother-in-law, who microwaves the glass Mr. Coffee pot after brewing "to get it hotter" (she says why spend another $15 on a new machine? It'll just do the same thing) I have become particularly annoyed with bad coffee and I suppose part of this is being able to tell the difference...

    Anyway, my equipment is as follows:
    Grinder: Krups basic blade grinder (I know, I know..)
    Coffee: Krups Pro Aroma, about 8 years old now
    and an old Bodum 4-cup French press which I never really learned to operate or appreciate
    Cap: Krups "unnamed" model, just your basic, about 11 years old now

    and a Bonjour Caffé Froth Turbo.

    So I'm just looking for your opinions on this stuff, and perhaps where to begin to improve. Man, would I like to have really, really good coffee consistently.

    Any suggestions appreciated!

    thx
    Andrew
    There will soon be a meaningful quote here, possibly, and possibly about coffee at that.

    learn to use your press....I love mine....if I do not own a electric coffee brewer at home....I use a commercial machine at work...if I was going to use an electric machine at home I would use a commercial one. But you can get a great...an awsome cup out of your press!

    Thanks topher... I had a hunch...

    I think part of my problem is grinding - our (relatively) cheap electric chopper, I suppose, needs to be closely watched/timed. Hm.. maybe that means a good grinder is the next step!

    FWIW I have had some absolutely stunning cups from the press, and ones that tasted like they were made in a vaccuum-style coffee maker, that vaccuum being a Hoover..

    Cheers!

    opps forgot....throw your "chopper" away...it breaks the coffee and you do not get a consistant grind...you can pick up a burr grinder for around $50....vacuums kick ass! Bodum has one out and it is cooooool!

    Hi Andrew
    For those who are not aware a major (the largest) coffee chain is changing their equipment...... I have it! If you are a fan of their coffee or just want top of the line equipment at liquidation prices I can help you.
    I can email or fax pics specs and prices. Please contact me if you are interested. Angelo 585-292-7262
