    I just went through two of these and both would not turn off the brew cycle at a certain point and nearly started on fire, completely melting parts of the units. Luckily I was like "What's that burning plastic smell?" both times.

    I always like Cuisinart but this time I went with another brand.

    I went to Kona a few moths ago and brought back several pounds of coffee. Does anyone know how to order Kona coffee by mail from Hawaii??

    are you saying you went to starbucks in paris and they didn't have the pike roast? or that you don't like french coffee?
    'cause either way:


    i would never have starbucks in europe, most of all, france.
    i can't speak for drip coffee, but i find the espresso there is superior to most coffee shops here. then again, i like mine a little bitter. also, i prefer how they make lattes and cappuccinos there properly (ie. without the ridiculous amount of milk they put in the giant cups here).
    and i dunno... there's also something called a french press. so i'd think the frogs know their coffee...

    we get kona coffee from the 2nd place just because it's easiest, but i think it's also satisfactory in taste.

    it's $20 bucks - by far the most expensive on the shelf, but the Kona at TJ's isn't bad...

    Starbucks' "Lightnote" and "Breakfast Blend" are perfectly fine if you wanna go that route.

    when i decide to ice my coffee, i generally go with more floral stuff.

    anyone ever tried the "cold brew" method? I brewed some coffee last night using old Guatemala beans from Starbucks. I tried brewing it hot with a french press, aeropress, and even drip, but the staleness overtook the taste. Then I brewed it with cold water for 12 hours and the result was surprisingly good. It made some great ice coffee, and can't wait to try it with fresh beans.

    When I worked for a friend doing coffee catering, he used to cold brew the coffee for the blendeds. Basically took a large 5 gallon bucket with a cover and a spigot, filled a large filter with a bunch of grounds, fill it with water and let it steep overnight. That stuff always smelled heavenly when I would fill liter bottles of it to go to work.

    If you are going Starbucks...I usually get Guatemala Antigua, Shade Grown Mexico, or Sumatra.
