Following up on the coffee enema story ;).. Last week I splashed out on some Jamaican Blue Mountain ground espresso coffee (supposedly the "best coffee in the world") and the courier just arrived (more on that later) I've been drinking a lot of coffee recently (lots of work, not much sleep allowed!) and it's gotten to the stage of having my own espresso machine at the office. Don't have a bean grinder, yet. Anyway, we've been drinking a brand which is not THAT expensive, but is the ONLY one that isn't bitter (that we could find at the supermarket). In fact it is a meal in itself, and can be easily drunk without sugar. Anyway, I got to thinking, if this $5/bag coffee is this good, what does the "best" taste like? Hence the $30.00 outlay for 100g of the freshly-ground Jamaican (about 4 cups worth.. doh!) Well.. *sip* It's got a distinctly earthy/dusky flavour, (like a good Pinot) and is making my hands shake. Which is a feat in itself! Nice and smooth. So the question is, what's your favourite brew? Is it worth getting a grinder and fresh beans? Am I really looking into this too much?
Curious George: what's your favourite coffee? What's your favourite coffee, and why? (link goes to my Flickr where I documented a recent coffee delivery)
