I am very serious about my coffee



Wow....that is serious.

I will be embarrassed to pop a K Cup in my Keurig in the morning after seeing that equipment.


That's one kind of system I don't have.

I have old teacups and saucers too. I love antiques!




I get some on Ebay, some at estate sales, and my sisters got me the rest

I used to drive 90 minutes into Berkeley to get a pound of beans from Philz.

I love Turkish coffee as well.

And now I have to have a cup of hot tea (usually English Breakfast).


That's about how far I am from Berkeley. I got the gold plated set sent to me from Turkey. My Dads family moved to California from Turkey in 1910. His dad is full Armenian, born near Harput

You are particular about your beverages and I love it!

Ever check out oolong tea? That's some good stuff right there.

I just buy Hills brothers original blend coffee and add a little of some good freshly ground guatamalan ground coffee a friend of mine makes into the mix. It comes out really good. The hills brothers we usually buy on sale for 4.99 or so for the twenty six ounce, the other coffee from our friend is about twenty bucks a bag, but the bag can flavor many cans of coffee. If we get special company we can use the pure guatamalan coffee. We also make a pot occasionally for a treat, having it all the time just raises the goalpost and sooner or later nothing tastes good enough.

Unroasted, green beans are far cheaper then roasted, and they keep for years. $5-$7 per lb for wonderful coffee, far better then Starbucks. There are exotic coffees that you will find in no store or coffee shop that cost up to $20 a lb, such as Gesha. They are indescribable. Ive gotten dynamite Columbian beans for as low as $4 per lb.

It is far cheaper, and higher quality to roast your own. Starbucks has nothing on me

Clipper green tea bags from Tesco.

Put bag in cup, add hot water.

Wait 2 minutes, take bag out, bosh.

I'm not at all impressed with Starbucks coffee. I drink about three cups of coffee in the morning and a couple of cups in the evening. I do not make it very strong, if I make it strong it kind of gives me heartburn. I don't mind it strong if I just drink one cup but enjoy drinking many cups of it so we make it about half as strong as it says on the can.

Looks like you have a wonderful set up, and have some great production.
Unfortunately your thread title is very similar to a tell all book from the 60/70's in regards to military life for young women.
Perhaps, that was your intent.
If not you may want to edit your title.

And I thought I was fancy by grinding my own free trade and adding Cocoa Beans for a zing of Chocolate. Lazy days I use Hershey s cooking Cocoa in the black can we grew up eating mom's fudge.

Everything bagels, toast, or English muffins

I also have a massive honey collection from around the world (some are very expensive and medicinal), I sometimes sweeten it with, but often use Hawaiian raw sugar
