Coffee

Recommended Posts

Don't mind the odd coffee. I went through a phase of drinking it every morning then started feeling groggy after it had wore off and was getting headaches. I swerve it now - will have the odd cup but got out of the habit of relying on the stuff.

I drink coffee every day.  I'm a heathen - I've had what has become known as a George Clooney machine for the last 10 years or so, but when the weather's good (like today) I'll walk down to the coffee shop in the village and avail myself of its services.

Taylors - Rich Italian. I'm half a man without a strong coffee in the morning.

  

Love their Lava Java.

 

I've never been that impressed with Taylor's coffee; the one's I've had have been a bit thin and sharp but I've had some great Javan coffee so could be persuaded to give it a try as not everywhere sells Cafe Direct

This is lovely if you like a strong coffee, Buoy.

 

Pretty similar to Taylors Lava Java, I tend to prefer it as it's just beautifully rich.

Would add that I'm not much of a connoisseur, having only started drinking coffee a couple of years ago. I got this based on reviews on various coffee nerd sites, but I like it anyway and have never had any complaints when I've served it to someone.

 

Bit of a one-off purchase for me due to the extra price. I wouldn't say the difference between it and Taylors as above is worth the huge premium, but worth a try I'd say.

Unless you're grinding your own, the closest you'll get to good quality coffee is probably Nespresso.

 

I confess that I am instinctively suspicious of companies that also produce instant coffee

I like it.  Especially the slow poisoning I'm getting from the aluminium.  And it means I can rework the advert.  "Get your own you scheming cow! Fuck off!"  Very cathartic when on your own in the house.  Not so great when you have visitors.

And all that fucking packaging! You wont turn me. The triumph of style over substance

Just like nice filter coffee, Halton Borough Council's meeting filter coffee is the best coffee I've ever had, I have high street coffee at a push but don't really like it that much - Rhode Island's is the best of a bad bunch, Costa's is rank. Used to have about 20 coffees a day in my old job, twas a palpitations fest.

I'll give it a go when it's available again. 

 

I'm a little skeptical of these "extreme strength" coffee brands though - the majority over roast. 

 

If you're looking for good ordered coffee, I can vouch for hasbean: http://www.hasbean.co.uk/ or https://www.pactcoffee.com/coffees

When I worked at the BBC they had Nescafe Freeze-dry and everyone wondered why I brought in my own every day. 

 

Instant coffee tastes awful.

does taste ok though.  And they recycle the aluminium for you.  I'm dead green, me.

I'm tending towards tea during the week and coffee at the weekend 

There's an excellent tea & coffee merchants 5 minutes walk away who roast their own beans 

I have a grinder and I'm in to my Moka pot at the moment so a few strong espressos work nicely
