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 !

Hey Dave - The picture shows a "round" waffle maker, but the next pic shows "square" waffles.  How did you do that?  Also, the uncooked strips in the frying pan look like "turkey" bacon.  We have that stuff all the time.  Healthy.

 

One last thing:  We'd love to be getting some of your rain showers!  

 

Keep up the good work.

@wilful I used photos downloaded from the internet. I did the post before the Sunday Morning News. We fixed our meal after the news was over. The coffee was ready before the news.

Welcome to the Front Porch coffee club!

 

Does coffee really taste sweeter on Friday?

The natural sugars, amino acids, alcohols, and glycols of coffee are transformed during the roasting process in an event called the Maillard Reaction. ... Lighter roasted coffees are known to have a fruity or floral sweetness. Darker roasted coffees more often have a darker, deeper sweetness.

Hi, Sandee!

 

Not sure how old this post is, so if it's truly from 2017, everyone pls ignore my response and tyvm...

 

If current, it would help to know what coffee brands you consider "cheapie" and which "more flavorful".

 

I do this mix daily, buying with Kroger stores have "case" sale on Folgers, then adding cheap coffee from other sources. But I use a "k-cup" based coffee machine (had to stop having so much coffee every day due to heartburn and insomnia, so bought a pod system).

 

If you have favorite and cheap available brew names possible to get formula 😉

Hello @ss11943859 , years ago when I lived in New Orleans I enjoyed their special coffee with chicory, which I liked for its dark roast taste and blood sugar lowering benefits. Maybe blending your cans with Cafe du Monde coffee with chicory or French Market brand would help.

 

While I was searching for sources of chicory additive, which I didn't find, I came across this article with suggestions for other ways to enhance coffee.  Most of these don't sound especially appealing to me, but I have already tried some by adding coffee toppers often available at Starbucks et. al., such as cinnamon, chocolate, and vanilla
