Hi Jason,

Yes, I certianly do now know!  I think I am becoming obsessed with coffee - this really is a different experience.

Have you ever heard of Old City Coffee in Philadelphia?  http://www.oldcitycoffee.com/

If so, any recommendations about them?

Thanks,

Chris

Thanks, Gery.  Yes, they are expensive but, as I said, that was incredible coffee.  I will give your recommendation a try!

Thanks, Chris

If you haven't looked at their site is www.Roaste.com and another is www.gocoffeego.com but are like a coffee broker they have anything and everything to do with coffee. But I did notice that its usually cheaper to buy the coffee straight from the roaster, cause for the same amount of beans from Deep Cello for example they charged me 10.00 for shipping but Deep Cello was only charging 3.95 for same amount. But you can go there and read the reviews to see what you may like and compare prices before ordering

I have to add Caffe Fresco's Ambrosia blend to this list. It's simply wonderful.

I just received my Red Bird and Red Bird Decaf - I am still amazed at the taste of these coffees - where does the chocolate taste come from?  Amazing!  All of these coffees are so much different from what I have drunk in the past.

I also found a local store that sells Black Cat and CC Toscano - the buyer there agreed to inform me when the new shipments come in.  We'll see how fresh it is.

Great recommendations from everyone on this site for incredible coffee - I feel like a kid who just found out about candy.

I received my order of samples from Deep Cello - tried the decaf last night and it is incredible.

Hey Chris,

Glad to hear you like the Red Bird.  It's awesome, huh?  I'm interested in hearing how you like Black Cat.  I won't tell you what I think of it, so as to not bias you.

I tried Deep Cello's Nostromo and Black Tie, in that order and found the Black tie to be more in the bass tones (along the lines of Red Bird).  Another blend I find to be in the same ballpark is the WBC from Klatch.  I think I may have recommended it to you in another thread...and I had mentioned their decaf is great as well.

I think you're hooked, Man!

Ron

I second the Red Bird suggestion. I ordered five pounds recently and I'm going through it faster than any other coffee I've had. It seems to be easy to get a great shot even on relatively entry level equipment.

Posted January 20, 2012 link

I agree!  I've tried Black Cat, Hairbender, and a few other local roasters and then discovered that RedBird is in the same town!  Called up Jeff and he delivered a 5lb bag and I've been hooked ever since.  I haven't even ventured into other blends in the past 8 months.  On my Silvia I'm able to pull consistently decent shots with Blue Jaguar and Brazilian Sweet Blue.  It is just always good!

Hi Ron,

Sorry for the delay - I didn't have this thread send me notifications.  Thanks for all your advice!

I love Red Bird.  My favorite so far, and I recognize that it may be that I got lucky with a few great shots and not a real difference in the coffees, is Counter Culture's Rustico decaf.

The local store has not delivered yet on fresh Black Cat - they keep promising.  We'll see.

I am going to visit the WBC from Klatch when I finish this post!  I am out of decaf!

You have no idea - I am totally addicted!  I am drinking 3 to 4 times the coffee I used to drink and alcohol consumption is down to nothing.  What's wrong with that picture?  Any way, yes, I love my new machine and especially all the great advice for coffees!

Thank, Ron!

Nothing, Ron, unless you have wines in your cellar that need drinking . . . ;^)
