Anyone for coffee? — 7 Comments

  1. I need a two fresh brews every morning first thing just to get my head in order. It is my breakfast ritual from 7.00am to at least 10.0am and it sets me right for the day. In a lifetime of working, I would never have had the time for such a luxury. I tried several brands of ground coffee before I found the one that gave me just the right bang. It's so good, I'm almost tempted to try smoking it too. It's called Sumatra Dark and it would knock you sideways just sniffing the aroma.

    • Sumatran coffee is by and far the best coffee there is!!!  It is by it's nature best as a dark roast.  I have a small one cup french press with which I make my morning joe.  It's a PITA to clean it to reuse it each morning but hey, it works.

    • As an expert, can you explain something for me?

      How come if I have a coffee in the afternoon I feel an urgent need for a nap after, but if I have one in the evening, I'm tossing and turning all fucking night?

      • The nocturnal tossing and turning in your case must be your bad conscience at all the terrible things we suspect you must have got away with over the years. Afternoon naps are normal and desirable and if the coffee is not knocking you for long enough, then try wine the next time.

  2. Coffee machines are carefully designed to cause as much trouble as possible.  Many, many years ago, I put an old percolator on the gas, went to "cuddle" my then girlfriend – and forgot the coffee.  Big hole in pot.  Then I managed to misread the dosing instructions on a Cona machine at an exhibition.  Whole bag of instant coffee placed in receptacle, result very thick mud and fast clean up to win back sick visitors.  And then there was the more modern machine which managed to explode at a very unwelcome moment.

    Don't drink coffee any more.

    • I have noticed that a lot of the modern machines seem to be designed around a particular "pod" of coffee that you have to buy individually [and of course from the same manufacturer]?  I may be wrong but it would be kind of typical of the modern world?
