Hi,

I'm just curious. I don't work as a café but I'd like to compare to other people.

Also what is your favorite store-bought brand of whole roasted beans? Please don't say Dunkin Donuts.

Thanks.

Hey Happy, I drink 2-3 cups a day - more on the week ends. I don't EVER!! buy beans from the store. I home roast. Fresh coffee is the ONLY way to go!

I typically drink 2 milk drinks a morning.  Each are double/triple shots somewhere between a macchiato and a cappucicno.  About half the time, I drink them both in the same cup (one very large drink), but the other times, I drink them consecutively.  On weekends, there's typically another similar drink in my repertoire later in the day, and depending on time of day and how I feel, it may or may not be decaf.

I buy 99% of my coffee off the good 'ol www (mostly Red Bird or Klatch).  The rest I get from Whole Foods (when I f@#k up and run out before a new shipment arrives).

I pull two doubles first thing in the morning and make a VERY large Americano with them, and do the same thing in the early afternoon.  That's eight shots daily and is pretty much my regimen as of now.

It depends.

I make a 10 ounce Americano in the morning, sometimes I make another.
Sometimes in the evening I'll have about a 10-12 ounce cup of coffee, pressed most often, but I make my evening drink on the mild side.

On weekends, if I'm just running errands I might have 2-3 cups in the morning, more if I go by Augies.

If I'm out coffee crawling with friends, the sky's the limit.

Can I have too much caffeine, yes, but my tolerance is incredibly high.

And being a girly-girl when it comes to coffee, I will occasionally have an iced blended mocha or the like.

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

Usually I have two 480g (30g of grounds) cups a day. One in the morning and one in the afternoon. Almost always pour-over.

Some days I'll have 480g of pour over in the morning, and a 250g Aeropress in the afternoon if I'm feeling full.

A latte for breakfast, an espresso macchiato during the morning, a doppio after lunch, one or two during the afternoon, and another one after dinner.

One of my favourite brands comes from a microroaster: Carroux Caffee, Hamburg. But I don't buy any beans at the supermarket.

I drink about 2 cups a day, on in the morning and another around noon or in the afternoon.
Usually using AeroPress. I get my beans from local micro-roasters, preferably as freshly roasted as possible!

I'm saving up for a MyPressi Twist so I can occasionally treat myself to a ristretto (aka double shot).

 
life's to short to drink bad coffee
preferred brewing method: AeroPress

wishlist:
MyPressi Twist, Espro Press, Coava Disk, Syphon Brewer

I agree with you there, although I have yet to buy a roaster. I still stir it in a pot on the stove maybe once a month. Could be worse, I saw a video of people in Ethiopia stirring beans over a fire.
The rest of the time I buy Peet's. Most everything else tastes bad by comparison. Sometimes Whole Foods is OK but they are moving to open bins, letting the bean oxidize.

What's your brewing method?  I used to use Peet's exclusively, and still have a recurring order for my Mom.  I switched from press pot and drip to espresso before I dropped my own Peet's order, so I can only speak for espresso these days, but there are far superior coffees out there than Peet's (IMO).  If you're doing espresso, try Red Bird, Klatch, Espresso Vivace, or some of the many others on the HB list of favorite roasters.  Having said that, I would be surprised shocked if those roasters don't produce far superior beans than Peet's for other brew methods as well.  Not trying to kick Peet's, but they're so big it's gotta be nearly impossible for them to compete with world class micro-roasters.
