Sometimes I go to bed at night looking forward to my morning pot of coffee.

Peet's Kenya roast is a favorite of mine. A buddy of works for their roasting plant in Emeryville so I get tossed an expired bag every now and then. I try to stick with a 50/50 decaf mix, though, to prevent the onset of caffine addiction and the associated early morning headaches -- that's no fun.

MMmmm. Expresso

I don't drink that much home brewed coffee. I'm a big fan of the expresso and the drinks that are made with it. My fav. Double shot English toffee latte. I also use expresso when I make my own energy gel. :D

Not sure being an mtb'er has any connection to drinking coffee or not drinking coffee. It's pretty much a universal drink(exept in remote areas-be it rain forest or deserts) with people who partake in all forms of activities. From mtb'g to coach potato.

Like any good black coffee. Don't care for the flavored stuff. Won't go the french press route. Too bloody time consuming. When I want coffee I want it now! ;-)

I have found an evil sort of addiction in coffee. I have a friend that roasts his own coffee (even started his own company) so I get the stuff that's fresh, I mean really fresh! The stuff in the grocery stores will do, but it doesn't taste nearly as good as the stuff that's been roasted within 5 days of drinking it (within 48 hours is the most incredible). His Singletrack blend is my favorite so far (just noticed that it's not on the website, but I bet you could call and get it).

Wow, screampint's got connections!! How much does Singletrack go for on the street??

Coffee is as necessary as oxygen. Maybe I should change my signature to quote my dad: "If I don't get some coffee soon, I'm gonna kill somebody....." :p

Couldn't tell you the difference from one to another. As long as it's fresh it's okay in my book. Fresh and caffeinated. Lately I've been getting two hits during the day instead of just the one in the morning.....usually I go to two different stores so they don't catch on to my addiction :rolleyes:

Black and strong

Like my women ;)

I too used to have a friend that roasted his own beans. Kick arse french roast that could curl your toes. Unfortunately, he sold the business and moved back east.

Now it's good old Starbucks French Roast. Filtered water, I'm told the better coffee makers heat the water more, thereby extracting more flavor - My new one is pretty good.

BTW - If you need to put that foo foo crap in your coffee, why not just drink cocoa?

Once you go black, you never go back.

Anything hot and black, the darker the better as long as it is not starbucks. There drip coffee ain't so bad, but I hate going to a place that insists on opening another store across the street from one of their own existing stores. I can think of a dozen or so starbucks in my neck of the woods that have opened a store right across the street from a starbucks in a grocery store. Can we really not walk across a street to get a cup of homogenated blended coffee? Next you know they will team up with Walmart so that every town as 2.1 stores/capita.

Mmmm Coffee

Love coffee. I used to drink 6 cups in the morning in one sitting now I was able to cut it down to two. I'll pretty much drink any cup of java as lonf as it is well made but Man, one day I ran out of my regular brew so I decided to just ride to the 99c store, which is just few blocks away from me, and bought a bag of cheap Sumatran coffee. Aaargh, That was the nastiest coffee I have ever tried in my entire life:mad: Word to the wise, DO NOT EVEN THINK of trying that coffee!!!!!
