Coffee !

I've been all over these forums & can't find the 'right forum', so mybe i'll find an answer on the front porch ?  Smiley Very Happy

I have 2 cans of 'cheapie' coffee ; tried mixing them so they would be more flavorful, but not-so-much did it work. Might buy a more spendy brand & mix them, but in meantime, anyone have any ideas on how to make these cheap brands taste better ?

Thanks !

Heaven is ~ One cup of dark, rich coffee and enough beans to make many cups more.

I awake.

I rise from my bed and stagger down the hall--using my fingertips, tapping the walls, as my guide.

As if on autopilot, I make my one single cup of coffee.

And with the first sip....

My eyes open.

Coffee is a way of stealing time which should by rights belong to your older self.

Does a high end coffee maker really make a better cup of coffee?

Dave, you asked, "Does a high end coffee maker really make a better cup of coffee?"

 

In short, I say it does not.  I make a pretty darn good cup of cup using Folgers Decaf instant coffee.  And after a few heaping spoonfuls of creamer and artificial sweetener (stirred not shaken), I'm good to go! Ummmmm, good!

The woman who started a coffee empire with her son's book

Before 1908, when you brewed coffee, filters were made of cloth. Sometimes coffee was filtered through socks if you were in a pinch. Yummy!

After getting fed up with her coffee's bitter taste caused by cloth filters, German homemaker Melitta Bentz literally took a page from her son's schoolbook and filtered her coffee through it. She quickly patented her contraption and became a coffee filter mogul.

The paper filters went on to win awards at the Leipzig Trade Fair and her company still exists to this day.

Thank you Melitta Bentz for bringing the sock brew to extinction!

THE IRISH COFFEE STORY

The historic venture started on the night of November the 10th in 1952. Jack Koeppler, then-owner of the Buena Vista, challenged international travel writer Stanton Delaplane to help re-create a highly touted "Irish Coffee" served at Shannon Airport in Ireland. Intrigued, Stan Accepted Jack’s invitation, and the pair began to experiment immediately.

Throughout the night the two of them stirred and sipped judiciously and eventually acknowledged two recurring problems. The taste was "not quite right," and the cream would not float. Stan’s hopes sank like the cream, but Jack was undaunted. The restaurateur pursued the elusive elixir with religious fervor, even making a pilgrimage overseas to Shannon Airport.

Upon Jack’s return, the experimentation continued. Finally, the perfect-tasting Irish whiskey was selected. Then the problem of the bottom-bent cream was taken to San Francisco’s mayor, a prominent dairy owner. It was discovered that when the cream was aged for 48 hours and frothed to a precise consistency, it would float as delicately as a swan on the surface of Jack’s and Stan’s special nectar.

Success was theirs! With the recipe now mastered, a sparkling clear, six-ounce, heat-treated goblet was chosen as a suitable chalice.

Soon the fame of the Buena Vista’s Irish Coffee spread throughout the land. Today, it’s still the same delicious mixture, and it’s still the same clamorous, cosmopolitan Buena Vista. Both…delightful experiences.

Below is the man who started it all!
