Anyone for coffee?

Recommended Posts

What's your favourite coffee, do you grind your own beans ,only drink instant, pod machine, swear by a particular Supermarket own brand of ground ,once you've got your coffee assuming it's either ground or beans what is your chosen method of brewing, Cafetiere, stove top pot, Aeropress , machine? I've tried most methods except one of the expensive machines like a Gaggia.

I don't drink much coffee - mainly tea. If I do have one it's mainly in the style of a Latte type thing. Sort of milky and creamy. It's quite odd but I drink more coffee when I'm on holiday - Spain or Greece or wherever. Having said that it's nearly ten years since I had a proper holiday! 

I've had a bit of involvement with some Syrian families recently and I quite like their coffee. Very strong and sweet in tiny little cups.

A flat white from costa ( lot ) is my choice , but prefer Nescafé & none of that decaf malarkey

So you're not a sufferer of tinnitus then?  What's it like to not have bells ringing in your ears 24/7, I've forgotten.:(

Had no hearing in my left ear 4 16 years & it rings constant , sounds like cobridge hall steel band playing , allways sit on my own @ niters as conversation is near on impossible but coffee or ale don't seem make any difference !

Mine is similar and having conversations at all-nighters is often disjointed and muddled, but caffeine hits my tinnitus up a notch something chronic.  I have no problem with ale either, mercifully.

Bugger love coffee and I also have severe tinnitus which is a result of my job,never thought there was a connection with caffeine making it worse,might have to either cut down or cut out the coffee see if it improves matters for me.

As a vegan I investigate lots of stuff that causes problems with tinnitus and other age related problems, let alone those of having a misspent youth, caffeine is a big no-no for tinnitus sufferers, I used to love Mysore coffee, but I've yet to find a decaf Mysore that has the right taste.

I remember the stuff :( A quick search on the net reveals..... Camp Coffee is a brown liquid which consists of water, sugar, 4% caffeine-free coffee essence, and 26% chicoryessence. 

Best disguised with sterilised milk ?

Black coffee only for me to avoid milk which makes me ill. I have gone from instant to caffeteire to a Cuisinart bean grinding and coffee machine from Lakeland.  Sometimes Kenco instant for a quick cup but the machine is great and not too expensive. I like the coffee strong and can now try a variety of beans.

Being a proud Lancastrian even though the powers that be try to make me accept Greater Manchester I don't particularly like Yorkshire Tea but have to say it beats by a mile the abomination that masquerades as Lancashire tea, bought a box once, one sip and down the sink box in the bin, don't know who buys it twice,bloody awful.
