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.

I DO NOT DO DECAFFE.

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!

I don't ever drink tea, not ever, never ever, never...

It's fucking foul, just tastes like hot, dirty water to me... :(

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...

There's a free starbucks voucher in the guardian today (to use today only), at 80p that's pretty good for some premium corporate coffee!
