    i can imagine there are a few coffee connoisseurs on this forum.

    I have an 2 espresso makers: one stove top & a Italian cappuccino machine. I have a french press. And i also have a Vietnamese coffee maker (the dripper that fits over your coffee cup-great for making Vietnamese iced coffee's)

    I DO NOT DO DECAFFE. I do not like Drip coffee, especially if its made with a paper filter.

    Discuss...

    a little known fact about Dark roast coffee:

    Dark roast has the least caffeine in it, Light roasts have the most caffeine in them. The longer the bean is roasted, the more caffeine dissipates from the bean.

    and u shouldn't..." How to make decaf: the coffee beans are first steamed for 30 minutes and then repeatedly rinsed with either methylene chloride or ethyl acetate for about 10 hours"

    but saying that... today the world's only Swiss Water decaffeination facility is based near Vancouver, Canada. that method sounds better!

    Coffee is horrendous for your stress levels. I love it but I try not to drink more than two cups a day.

    figaros in moorgate gives me what i need in the morning. best cup of coffee in the zone by far, i fucking love it.

    i'm a big fan of coffee, think i prefer it over tea in some ways. but of course, nothing beats a good cup of de earl grey, ya na.

    Yeah, my girlfriend ordered green tea for me at Wagamama the other day...

    Tried it, did not want...

    She drank 2 cups, which I think was her plan all along...
