  1. What is your favourite type of coffee, and why do you like it?
    I don’t like anything in my coffee except a little half-n-half. I like a deep mellow full flavor with no bitterness.
    I like the blends from a local roasting house (but you can order from them online). Klatch Coffee ( Award Winning Specialty Coffee ). It is sold whole bean but they will grind it for you (auto-drip or espresso grind).
    These three are my favorites so far (pictured in order of preference but all are delicious):

  2. My favorite kind of coffee is whole bean, freshly roasted coffee. I roast my own, and generally drink it black. I also blend several different coffees for espresso: Sumatra, Guatemala, Brazil and Monsooned Malabar.
    There is a huge difference in taste with fresh roasted coffee compared to what you can get at most grocery stores (or Starbucks). To be at its best, the coffee must be consumed within 14 days of roasting. Once the coffee bean is ground, it starts losing flavor immediately. To my palate, instant powdered coffee tends to have little flavor.

  3. i’m quite a simplistic person, and i’m also completely broke, so i use instant coffee. normally, i have it black with a little teaspoon of sugar, but if i’m feeling particularly ambitious i’ll have the same instant coffee, but with a bit of cocoa powder plonked in with the coffee before pouring in the water, with a small splash of milk for an inexpensive, hassle-free mocha; of course, it’s easier said than done, and took me a while to figure out what works best for me.
    if i have no coffee, i will have a hot chocolate or a fruit/herbal tea – NEVER NORMAL TEA; IT’S DISGUSTING – but that’s a last resort.

  4. I just had the best coffee of my life at, get this, a hotel breakfast buffet. I think they may have been using Wolfgang Puck grounds, but I’m not sure. It had no sour or bitter tones and was rich, almost chocolatey. I recently got my hands on some Wolfgang Puck coffee and I will brew it as soon as I can to see if that’s what it was.
    I prefer drinking my coffee with a little milk to cool it down. I don’t like cream because it adds too much distracting flavor. I also wouldn’t complain if a small scoop of vanilla ice cream accidentally found its way into my cup…
    The biggest problem that I see with exploring the variety of coffee beans/brewing methods is that there are too many factors. Once I start buying whole beans to grind, I’ll wake up one morning and realize that I’ve been roasting my own beans, adding and removing minerals from my water, and measuring the brewing temperature with a digital thermometer. I tend to settle with a decent but not excellent cup of coffee out of fear that the whole thing will get out of control.

  5. My favourite is Illy, but at home I have one of those capsule espresso machines from Aldi and it makes pretty, bloody good coffee. I like Illy because it’s strong without being bitter. I drink black coffee and it’s important that it doesn’t taste too harsh. I like my Aldi machine because it creates just the right amount of espresso foam and the temperature is perfect. Aldi brand capsule coffee is very smooth and the capsules are much bigger than the standard capsule machines so the coffee is stronger.

  6. I prefer Decaf coffee, because I can have it later in the day after a meal. Usually I add a spoonful of baking cocoa to the grounds just before brewing for a “Mocha” flavor. Even the cheapest store brand coffee tastes better with a bit of flavoring added.
