    Default Recommend-a-coffee thread

    I just bought some coffee from the store that is just crap.
    Don't want to do that again.

    Please recommend a coffee for me.
    Whole beans, ground, whatever...

    For my everyday drip for use as Iced-Coffee/Bailey's I use Starbucks Pike Place. Ratio of 8 scoops for 10cups.
    When I go back to Hawaii for the New Year, I grab a few bags of the smaller local coffee makers, usually medium-bold to bold.

    something i highly recommend, but caution that it takes some practice... it's something i've been doing for years that i learned while living in Seattle, and my coffee will kick any store bought coffee's ass 9-ways to Sunday.

    ask Kat, even.

    most markets have their bulk coffee next to all that stale s*** sitting on the shelf. there's plenty to chose from and it is almost ALWAYS on sale - usually at about a dollar less per pound than the abject s*** sitting just to the left.

    now, you grab a bag, fill it with a generous amount of Sumatra, smell it - getting a good idea of that "base" smell, and then start adding bits of other coffees (depending on what sounds interesting). as you're adding, periodically either shake the bag or mix the beans by hand and keep smelling - try to identify what you're missing, and add accordingly, not forgetting to add more Sumatra, but be sure to continue to keep mixing and smelling as you go.


    in the end, the amount of Sumatra in your blend should be at least 50% of the coffee. i remind you that i have done this for many many years and have found Sumatra to be the absolute best "foundation" as it's a smooth heavy-bodied coffee with low acidity.

    don't forget to add a little acid and maybe a touch of whatever Vanilla beans available. but most importantly, USE YOUR NOSE!

    and since most real Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is far too expensive (about $45-$50 a pound) unless you're a coffee freak, one place i HIGHLY recommend and my personal favorite for everyday drinking is...
