hahaha... i 'm lazy on caps/strict grammar for casual writing especially on net forums not thats indicative of anything.   buzz ?stimulation? whatever term you prefer. all i have to say is ,even amongst english speakers, not everyone sees the same thing, its kinda like watching one of the presidential debate between george bush senior and bill clinton.  :P

i got a better buzz with a different brand, same barista technique.  actually sensed changes in sensation up till a distinct strong headache.  did have to take like 8 tsps , 4 cups coffee.  roughly about 2 per cup .dunno if i can tweak it for even more buzz.  anyone got a video tutorial they deem real good?  

never had to do this before as about 4 tsps of folgers instant worked year-round, everyday,all the time.


any recommended brew brands?

Give this a try, it might be just what the doctor ordered when the withdrawal headache kicks in…

Take care!

I've tried the lime Aeroshot and found it fairly disgusting (review), but of course YMMV. Also, it only contains 100 mg. of caffeine total. Here's another place to look as long as we're just talking about buzz: http://www.caffex.com/

Chris, thanks for the highlight about Mr Cho. Interesting development of the art.

The AEROSHOT & Caffex citations are interesting tangents to the common flow we have here; yet directly relevant with the OP's intent.

Always interesting how the denizens of c.g. Can create sense of the oblique.
Cheers, Chris

Aren't there just some threads you just want to turn around and walk away form?

thats the thing, my doctor was useless on this as i casually mentioned this. that old lady thought i had depression or something and referred me to mental clinic.   yeah sure doc. O_o  it is true that she was a sub till my formal on-leave fp returns but still.   wouldn't be surprised she didn't even use coffee and had no clue.

lost my respect for doctors right there.  

anyways neat ideas. anybody here tried them yet?  i'm gonna look into them.

Caffeine powder doesn’t seem to be the same as coffee.  When I tested it with my premixed instant, instant gave almost instant euphoria and cognition boost.  That powder’s much lesser.

Less euphoria and cognition but more jitter feel. And to boot, you can crash on that sheet which I found out the hard way. -_-

I guess this synthetic just doesn’t measure up. weak science or something.

And there was a new research out on brew so if that give you stomach issue ,this explains why.

Click Here (www.webmd.com)


I guess all the makers got their own formulas on their coffee which would explain why there such a wide range differences between the brands.

But doesn’t look like this powder stuff is some miracle science or anything.

It kinda like having the perfect woman. If you ever lose that, you always strive to get something as good and not less if you can. -_-




p.s. there some people i like to turn away from too. -_-

interested in listening to folks with brewing experiences.  i did more experiments and was able to get some successes.

but i did find big differences between brands with pour over method.  i did melitta mild and that didn't made me feel any buzz.  i tried folgers medium roast and that gave me a pretty good buzz, much closer to what folgers instant was.  i followed their recommended water-grounds ratio for both.

i tried the country roast folgers mild brew and surprising even though i got the same coffee headache as folgers medium, it was kinda empty in feeling. and surprisingly ,the confidence and motivation isn't the same compared with the medium .

anyone expert brewers got similar experiences.  looking for some samaritan feedbacks. not in the mood for wise- ass comments right now, so the likes of that can go take a hike.

This whole brewing business can seem tricky compared with instant coffee which is just heat water and add and you are done.
