What's the absolute best way to enjoy coffee?
For me it's a triple Americano. What does /ck/ think?
>buy the best beans you can (most expensive =/= best, organic is a good sign, one source etc.)
>light/medium roast (the darker the roast the less caffine)
>ceramic burr grind
I have a metal filter too, bit couldn't taste a difference with that either.
Um, small? Not powder-ish, but like sand?
>not hot enough
I've found it to be a decent temp. I used to go for 88-91 degrees, came out slightly bitter. Noticed the championship recipes all used around 79 degrees, gave it a shot, loved it.
i worked in a coffee shop for three years, and actually gave a damn about what i served the customers. i can make some pretty good coffee. i have a super hipster twin head machine the size of a small fridge at home, & have made vacuum, cold, aeropress, turkish, & just about every other type of coffee on the planet with autistic attention to detail
my favorite coffee is and always will be camp coffee made by percolator over the fire, with cream and sugar. get good at making coffee, so you can replicate whatever conditions you want, but dont act like we arent autists
extremely well caffeinated autists
There's nothing like a good French Press on a cold morning whilst reading.
Other personal favourite is a flat white at uni with the lads. We have a table in the sunny courtyard we always sit at in winter between lectures and exchange some banter. Pic related, good memories :^)
The best coffee I think I have ever had was from this place called 'Red Rocket' in toronto. I can't really describe it but it was really good. It wasn't bitter, but it wasn't too 'dark' tasting either... it was just really good and flavorful.
