Iíve discovered that I actually prefer the Behmor after all because you can program it to presoak the grounds for freshly roasted coffee which you canít do with the Technivorm. With as much as I have on my plate I can appreciate having devices that make things a little less ďhands onĒ where I can get them.

    Also, donít forget the value of a good grinder. Iíve had a cheap Krupps burr grinder up until a week ago when I bought a Baratza Encore. All I can say is that it definitely makes a difference. And this is with an entry level grinder. I can only imagine what the higher end grinders can do.
    welcome to forum, Largefarva (interesting choice of user name :+) Has your city's population finally reached 7,000 yet? How is the coffee scene in your city? is there some great places for specialty coffee?
    again, welcome and hope that you can share your coffee experience with all of us.
    thanks

    by the way, finally, has any good coffee shop gone into your "Spring Creek Plaza"?
    At least it has a Chinese fast food and a Pizzeria in that mall.... couple of empty stores where a nice coffee shop can go in....

    However, there is one Starbucks that has only 1 review and one McDonalds with 53 reviews.... So I guess McDonalds is way more popular than Starbucks in Spring Grove.

    Spring Grove is pretty quiet as you can imagine. There isn’t a coffee scene that I know of here, but there is a company called Coffee Masters that roasts and sells wholesale here. I haven’t had any coffee from there that I know of anyway.

    We discovered a local place that roasts their own coffees weekly in Crystal Lake called Conscious Cup that I have bought a couple of different whole bean coffee from, and have discovered that freshly roasted coffee is definitely the way to go. I didn’t realize how big of a difference it makes having coffee being roasted within the past few days. It’s amazing.

    i don’t think I’ve ever had McDonald’s coffee before...people say it’s good so I’ll just take their word for it. Starbucks on the other hand? Yuck....that stuff is only good if you like burned coffee or coffee drinks that have a ton of syrup added totaling a 1000 calorie drink. Probably because that’s the only way they can get people to drink that stuff. lol

    Edit: I just sat down a few minutes ago with a freshly brewed cup of this stuff that was roasted 4 days ago, and it’s amazing. And I’m sure there’s some really good stuff out there that makes this coffee seem ordinary.

    Since I can’t create links yet, it can be found on Conscious Cup’s website under their section of coffees for sale from Papua New Guinea.

    I cant wait to try other coffees from them. Soooo good.

    The Papua New Guinea coffee appears to be $19.95 for a pound, plus shipping. I would hope that it makes a very good cup of coffee.

    I enjoyed it a lot. I’ll definitely buy more in the future. Funny thing is that I originally wanted to get a bag of the Uganda coffee (which was rated at #26 by coffee review in 2017) but didn’t see any there at first. It wasn’t until we had already paid and were waiting for my wife’s peanut butter latte she ordered (which tastes like a Reases peanut butter cup brownie....yum!) that I saw a couple bags of the Uganda coffee on a small shelf. I would have gotten it but I’m already working through now two bags of different coffees from there already. I’ll be sure to look more closely next time I need another bag of coffee.

    They ranked Cuisinart as #1 which to me discredits this entire post. I think the overall quality of those products have dropped in the past decade. Have a Technivorm. Its fast, hot, and easy to clean. Pricey, but consistent. Couple that with a Zojirushi travel mug, and you are in coffee heaven for the entire day if your coffee makes it that long.
