Whats you preferences??

 

I just want to say that instant coffee is a satanic drink brewed for those of us who are already in purgatory!! I had been drinking it all my life and always suffered with stomach nausia and aches in the mornings, I think I realised it was this toxic sludge doing it too me so beware everyone.

You overestimate how active people are here. :(

 

I shall second all you said about instant coffee, though. Real coffee, mind, is basically God's gift to man.

Now you're making me jealous. I grew up with French press coffee, but it's been ages since I've had it. More than lack of opportunity, it's just that I tend to drink way too much coffee for it to be feasible. :P So for now I'm stuck with filter drip.

 

It's an unpopular opinion, it seems, but I also used to really enjoy percolated coffee. Or maybe it's not an unpopular opinion at all; I am basing that statement off of Locke giving me a withering look and accusing me of 'literally burning the coffee' when I shared with him my enjoyment thereof. :P

Haha in the place I work the women thats been there for 17 years hates the perculated coffee and the drip coffee and always insists on giving them coffee from the machine! Its funny when AMericans come in and ask for "drip coffee" and she has to use it!

 

However I wondered was there much of a difference between certain coffees like Costa Rican and Colombian? for e.g

So when you say 'from the machine,' what's its mechanism, then? I didn't realize filter drip wasn't as common in Europe. :o

 

There's probably a different taste profile, but I'm not the one to ask about it, heh.

 

I dunno if you know who C.G.P. Grey is, he's a YouTuber and a podcaster out of London, and on one of his podcasts, he always used to note the differences between how he and his wife drank coffee. His wife was very much a connoisseur, seeking out the best coffees, the perfect flavors, and enjoying their richness in relatively small quantities (so she might afford the luxurious blends she found she liked best). Grey, on the other hand, drank huge quantities of the cheapest coffee he could get his hands on, sometimes committing the outright heresy of microwaving it if he had some left over that'd cooled down. The shame.

 

However, shame aside, I'm definitely him in this situation. :P I shopped around for the cheapest coffee I could find in my town whose flavor I still liked (for the record, it was a medium-roast Colombian blend), and have just bought that exclusively in huge, 4 ℔ canisters ever since. xD
