What is the best tasting ground coffee you can buy in a store? I see Maxwell House, Folgers, Hills Bros, and then more expensive ground coffees like Peet's and Starbucks further down the aisle.
Which is the most tasty?
/coffeesnob/ here, Major Dickason's blend is pretty good. Personally,
I roast my own coffee because I like lighter roasts than anything you can buy in the stores, and it's all pretty stale anyway.
BUT for the best coffee making, I'd suggest French press if you can grind it really coarse, otherwise pourover (like a V60 or a Clever cone) or Aeropress. Pots don't make great coffee as a general rule.
>for any reason
no matter how you brew your coffee, buying beans and a grinder is superior
I use a hand grinder, small electric ones are cheap enough
pls don't buy ground coffee
vacuum sealing is much better than just bagging it, but it's still inferior to fresh ground beans
the beans can't gain anything after they are ground, all that can happen from that point on is that they go stale
>I won't spend thirty bucks on a coffee grinder but I'll drop a few hundred on some thing that sucks air out of bags even though I know that I'll have to keep buying more and more bags
>but I'm a coffee lover!
Uh, dude. You can get a vacuum cleaner for $20. Put a piece of gauze over the coffee, form fit a bag over the nozzle, and then duct tape it closed while the vacuum cleaner is running.
You can go on to use the vacuum cleaner to vacuum the floor. It is not a unitasker. Just remember to sterilize the tip before sealing a new batch of coffee.
What am I supposed to read again? In fact, nvm. I don't care any more.
Ground coffee goes bad within minutes. That's an absolute fact. I don't care what you do but now you know.
Someone who knows.
best bang for buck right here
good luck getting it if you're not in melbourne
How about the ones where I buy imported at the supermarket.
My next bet is buying Brillo. That shit taste cash. Bought the robusta months ago, and man, it taste pretty good.
How about yours, what's your suggested pick on grinded coffee?
This. I moved a couple years ago and couldn't find a local roaster who knew what the fuck they were doing, so I bought a roaster and started roasting my own beans.
If you buy roasted coffee online, Chromatic and Ritual are both really good, but it'll be pricier -- closer to $20 a pound.
And for the love of God, buy whole beans and grind them the day of (as you use them)....it makes a huge difference.
Well, I decided to ditch that because it honestly tastes disgusting.
I bought the beans and I grinded it beforehand because every supermarket have a coffee grinder.
When I drink the coffee from the machine, it taste bland for me, I even add an extra spoon to add some kick, but it still work.
So you say that I need to seek chromatic and ritual kinds? I'll see to it.
>not grinding your own coffee
It's dirt fuckin' cheap, too. I spent $10 on a big bag of cheap coffee beans and I'm getting so much coffee out of it that I'm paying cents for each cup. Even the cheap beans are way better than any top-tier pre-ground coffee, which exponentially loses its freshness with each passing day.
I don't have a grinder, and I won't afford it.
The already have it in the supermarktet anyways and their service is free.
It doesn't take that fact that grinded coffee still tastes shit.
If you're limited to buying supermarket beans and pregrinding it then it probably doesn't matter which brand you buy. Just try a few and stuck with the one you like best.
How are you brewing it?
What's your first language? (just curious)
How do I brew my coffee..
I take the grinded beans onto my container and put it to my machine. I then let my coffee machine to do the rest.
I'm all to buy whatever coffee I want, I just want a good taste of it.
My first language is Filipino, but I like English better than the other one so there.
It was my grammar, wasn't it. I haven't went through a lot sleep because I was too caught up with my project. I went back to my home because I forgot something, and then I type this >>7308642. I went back quickly because I was in a rush.
I can't really think right now, and I keep forgetting to double check my sentences. I'm really sorry.
Hey, your English is perfectly readable, there's just a few little "slightly off" syntactical things, not really a big deal.
Anyway, honestly if you're using a regular drip coffee maker like it sounds like you are, it's going to taste pretty shit even with freshly-ground coffee. That's probably your biggest problem.
I'd recommend you order an Aeropress, they're like $20-25, and really easy to use. It'll make even cheap supermarket coffee taste worlds better.
Capitalism, sure, but it's a pretty foolproof way to get into good coffee. I don't use mine anymore but it required a lot less trial and error than a pourover cone for someone coming from a drip pot
Why does my Aeropress coffee go cold get lukewarm in about a minute flat? I boil my water, pour the boiling water in my cup to pre-heat it, wait about a minute for the water in the kettle to cool down slightly, and I do the pressing process within about a minute and a half then add a tiny bit of milk. By the time I drink it, it's already noticeably cooled down. Towards the end it's practically cold.
