    Smile Hello from Canada

    Hi everyone,

    I'm from the province of Saskatchewan in Canada. I am 23 years old and a male. Currently I am a student taking engineering at the U of S and have one year left of studies. I enjoy wieght lifting, Yoga, playing Squash and meditate quite regularily. Also I love to cook and eat healthy so coffee and tea suit this quite well

    I just got into drinking good coffee (and tea as well) about a year ago. It all started with a French Press that I recieved. I noticed the coffee was quite good from this, much stronger. Shortly after I thought "if regular coffee tastes better in a press, I wonder what good beans would be like" I then also purchased a very cheap blade grinder. I started with medium roasts and eventually found I liked dark roasts. I then found that a blade grinder does not do a good job... after researching I decided to purchase a manual burr grinder (the kind that you turn with your hand to grind, sort of like a mill). Then I got a moka pot since I can now make an even fine grind. The only downside with this coffee experience is that I'm corrupted! I can't drink normal coffee now. At work I used to gulp down the office coffee, now I can't stand it and have to brew my own at work with my french press. Everyone at work now thinks I'm quite sophisticated with my coffee, even though I'm still a noobie.

    I got my brother into good coffee, and now my parents are somewhat upset they have to buy whole bean coffee (instead of folgers or maxwell house). I also got my brother into drinking loose leaf tea (I got him hooked on the Darjeeling and Yerba Mate).

    I enjoy this whole journey to experiencing the world of good coffee and fine tea... Since I don't drink booz regularily it gives a beverage to spend money on!

    Hello "tankin_tummy"

    Welcome to the Coffee Forums website!

    Thank you for writing such a nice introduction. It's always fun to read a little about our new members.

    You have an unusual choice for a user name for this forum, especially considering that you mentioned you're into weight lifting, etc. When I saw your user name, I pictured a middle-aged woman with a sagging belly.

    It's great that you discovered the "world of coffee" and that you're sharing your knowledge with others.

    I hope you will be an active member of his forum, and I look forward to reading your posts.

    that name is actually a long story... it was a nickname I used to have when I was younger. I was a little porky as a child and early teen, and loved to eat. That name just kind of stuck with me, and I always use that name for any kind of forum to this day. I am much slimmer now and in good shape, but I still love my food.

    That's funny.....the kids in school used to call me "Jelly Belly" because I was a little porky. I hated that! After high school, I got fit and slim and stayed that way. Now, as the years have gone by, they're the ones with the "Jelly Bellies." As they say, "What goes around comes around."
