I use a French press to brew French Roast coarse ground beans provided by a local barista. This has been my morning ritual for almost 15 years after having been introduced to the process by a good friend. I can't imagine venturing away from this morning wake up however, having had a sample of what you describe, I can see its merits. Thanks for the reminder!

There's a million ways to skin a cat. Money's been a little tight the last few years at our house. We got off the top drawer stuff and started drinking Folgers. After a couple days - Hell, coffee's coffee. I'm living in Kona now. I've had this super expensive Kona coffee, brewed by the coffee house. As far as I can tell, it tastes like Folgers.

Pretty much any way to brew coffee is fine, except for the percolator and cowboy coffee. It's too easy to burn it. But then if you're using a percolator, you have other problems. If you're making cowboy coffee, you don't really give a crap about anything anyway.

A chemist friend of mine tells me that you're likely to not extract as much caffeine with the cold method.

I'm a man, and I can change, if I have to, I guess.

Confessed coffee snob here, guilty as charged. I was raised in a family of foodies, and older sis lived in Berkeley which was near ground zero for the current US coffee obsession. We've been grinding the stuff since the 70s. That said, I was turned on to the cold brew process a while back and have used the Toddy that Mike illustrated. Neat process, each person can vary the strength of their own cup according to their tastes, it's efficient and it's highly portable. The only thing I have found - since I am a bitter SOB - is that the coffee tends to be on the smooth side. Not a critique, just a feature.

I'm fine with diner coffee as I leave my coffee expectations at home, but I will not drink major Amercian beers, a man has got to have his limitations.

When you are next in Miami, I will treat you to a cup brewed by these folks. Truly a spoiling experience. Panther Coffee. Best enjoyed when you are wearing your BMW Whale Foreskin Riding Suit.

Makes one wonder. Is coffee oil safe to use in a bike with a wet clutch?
