    Go buy some real coffee ya bum.

    Stared with one of those. Now I have a Baratza Encore electric burr (look it up). An aero press, French press, Chemex (my personal favorite) and a clever dripper for use at work. And then I just got a Bonavita auto dripper cuz I'm too lazy and tired to make coffee now at 5am so I just grind my beans toss it in press start and pour my coffee in to a thermos before heading out the door.

    I agree that a primo cup of coffee doesn't need anything added, but the stuff we have at work isn't that great and they only supply us with that powdered creamer crap. Over xmas, we had a can of whipped cream in the fridge and that shit tastes bomb in coffee

    I've been pretty happy with this setup so far. A little manual labor makes me enjoy my coffee even more.

    Yo sign up for Modern Times coffee subscription. $40 a month gets you 2 bags of freshly roasted goodness. You get one bag of usually their Black House (it's also the same beans they use in their coffee stout) and a bag of a barrel-aged bean. You get some really interesting flavors from those. I think this month is a bourbon barrel aged bag. Last month was a whiskey barrel aged. I usually finish the last of both bags right as my new shipment comes in the first few days of the month.

    All this fancy coffee making stuff and I'm over here with my Starbucks coffee..it's always done the job, but damn I hate when I think about all the money I spend. I got two gift cards for xmas which was a total of about $50, and it's pretty much gone already :annoyed:

    I quit starbucks when I learned how to make a good cup of coffee. Very rarely do I go to one. Its way too overpriced for over-roasted coffee. $50 gets you at least a months worth of good, fresh, local roasted beans.

    I was at a Peets coffee the other day, wanted a small regular cup of joe and it was $2.25, ok whatever it's just a couple bucks. Then the girl hands it to me half full and says, "if you want it full we'll need to make another batch" o_O bitch I just paid $2.25 for 10 oz of water filtered through dirt, of course I want it full!!

    buy yourself a grinder and an aero press. it's the easiest way to make a consistently good cup of coffee. That's what I bought when I first started. Don't buy pre-ground beans the flavor is garbage. Once you grind the beans the true flavors only stay with them for a few minutes so you want to grind and brew as close together as possible

    Definitely man. I picked up a Ninja Coffee bar over black Friday for like 50% off. Just enough customization to get you started down the road. Half the battle to good coffee is nice filtered water and NOT over heating the water.

    @lesterb315 alternatively if you want a good auto dripper get the Bonavita BV1500. It's $75 but it's one of the best drippers in the price range. It heats the water up to about 195 which is where you want it, and it has a showerhead water dispenser so it evenly covers your beans. I got one for christmas and I use it every morning during the week.

    This seems so pricey when a can of Folgers will run you $15 or so. I'll have to check it out.

    Yes, but it's also legit coffee, not that folgers shit. It lasts a month. Think of it this way: you can go to Starbucks everyday and spend about $3-5 depending what you get. If you go only during the week that's about 20 * $4 = $80 for coffee only during Monday-Friday. That $40 I spend gives me at minimum 2 cups of coffee Monday-Sunday every week for the full month.

    All that coffee talk caught my attention but that is WAY too much work to do when you're not even awake yet. I'll stick to my keurig for now.

    I don't go to Starbucks though. I spend ~50-75 cents a day on Folgers + a solid flavored cream that makes it taste like a $5 cup. :rofl:
