    That commercial in 2011.

    Husband: "Skip making my coffee, it's never any good....I'll get some at Starbucks...."

    Wife: "Go to hell a-hole".

    I'm reading this thread, thirteen hours later than this post, while drinking my coffee.
    I grind my French Roast beans the evening prior and have it all ready for the morning. I drink one mug (4 cups for my coffee maker) every morning and take my pills while reading threads on the TDPRI forum. I get about 30 mins of relaxation time prior to leaving for work. It's my routine and even on my days off, like today, I'm up and drinking my coffee and on the TDPRI forum.

    We are lucky to have a local coffee roasting operation here so I don't have to worry about fresh coffee at home.

    Still, the best coffee I've ever had is available on every street corner in Miami (no, it's not $tarbux either.)

    Whether it's coffee, beer, whiskey or guitar finishes, people here never cease to amaze me with their snobby fussiness.

    Snobby Fussiness?
    I remember growing up in an East Texas town in the '70s where we could get all the Coors we wanted at Kroger, but we had to have a convoy go into Atlanta to find an A&P so we could get 8 O'Clock Coffee.

    I feel embarrassed that I'm still drinking Folgers made in a Mr. Coffee.

    If you've ever had Navy coffee you will never complain about Folger's, Starbucks, Dunkin, Maxwell House, or any other non-cork sniffin stuff. Trust me.

    OMG. i think i'm going to stop drinking coffee. for me, the beauty of coffee is in a local 24/hr diner served by a surly older lady. all this frenchified snobbery (as the man who invented the dictionary put it) is enough to make me crack a teeny-tiny espresso cup over a hipster's head. he won't feel it, but i'll feel better afterwords.

    Met my wife at a little coffee shop, before Starbucks invaded and ran all the indies out of business. (Though I must admit they've got a pretty tasty cup of joe - not as good as the stuff we make at home; I still have to add a bit of half-and-half to dampen the bitterness) She and I spent countless hours refining the brewing process, trying out different brewing methods, adjusting the grind and trying out different coursenesses of bean . . . It was a fantastic way to flirt. Anyway, our experiments led us to use a manual coffee maker. I'll try to post an image, but I've never been successful in my attempts. Anyway, We've got our whole beans and our grinder, our manual coffee drip, water that is heated but not brought to a boil, and we can make a cup of coffee that's as strong or stronger than what you get at 'bucks without the bitterness. We drink it black. Good stuff. Great video. The really interesting ones are those in which the guy points his finger aggressively, like he's about to get violent. Reminds me of another video. I'll post it next . . .

    We got a low end Cuisinart espresso maker last year for Christmas and life has been great since then. I'm no coffee snob, but I love strong stuff. Now I start every day with a double espresso plus half and half. Bam!

    I'm using a local central PA brew called Star Barn (if you're from the area, you'll get the reference), and it tastes great. No doubt I'm doing it all wrong from an espresso viewpoint, but I'm never going back to "regular" coffee.

    The whole world seems to manage to screw it up somehow.

    I can't make decent coffee to save my life.

    I read a funny book last year about coffee that was full of information, history and anecdotes. It's called The Devil's Cup. Forget who wrote it.

    The guy had a tongue-in-cheek theory about the inverse relationship between the quality of a country's coffee and it's success in warfare.

    Best coffee in the world?
    Italy.

    Last time they were successful militarily?
    2000 years ago.

    Country most famous for appalling coffee before 1970?
    USA.

    Foundation of Starbucks?
    1971.

    Loss of Vietnam war?
    1975.

    Therefore...the best way to stop any future military threat from China or other country?

    Mass air-drop high quality expresso makers all over it.

    When you roast your own beans, how do you add the grumpy nastiness? :D
