Hello all. I am your average American brought up on filter and dripped grocery store coffee. I lived in hawaii for almost a decade where I learned that coffee can ACTUALLY be the "best part of waking up" or "good til the last drop" when I bought my first bag of 100% kona. Then I started grinding my own. Then on a backpacking trip I decided to make cowboy coffee which was so great despite it's grit that it led me to the French press. Ive since traveled the world a lot for work, and recently I picked up a moka pot here in italy and that's what led me to your forum. I expect soon I'll be foaming milk for cafe latte or cappuccino for the wife when I get home, where I will have to figure out how fine to grind the beans from my local roaster. Coffee used to be a part of the routine like tying my shoes, but now it's an adventure.
