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 !

Coffee maker is called “expresso maker or Bialetti or Primus for brands.

 

First one discovered/gifted while working in 1982 and still using .

 Only thing that might need replacement is the seal between top and bottom sections but, mines remained intact.

 

Price is downright affordable on them, have packed and taken them on hikes on APpalachian Trail, yes I do have an addiction to beans🤣

 

Examples-

 LOVE STRONG COFFEE-  HAVE USED FENCH ROAST SINCE 80'S, LONG BEFORE IT BECAME TRENDY. VERY BEST WAY TO MAKE COFFEE IS CONE DRIP- BOIL WATER ON THE STOVE( GAS- IN CASE POWER GOES OUT!)= THE BEST & STRONGEST, BUT ELECTRIC DRIP IS EASIEST & READY WHEN YOU WAKE UP, IF YOU HAVE AUTO TIMER. MOTHER ALWAYS USED PERCOLATER, THEN SWITCHED  TO INSTANT WHEN IT WORE OUT. TOO BAD I NEVER BOUGHT HER A "MR. COFFEEE" OR SIMILAR.

 FOR TEA, EARL GREY IS GREAT, BUT I LIKE LAPSANG SOUCHONG FOR A HEARTIER CUP!- RED ZINGER OKAY TOO- LOCAL HONEY ONLY.

Brown sugar, @l483260l ?  Now, that's a twist.  Never tried it so I guess I can't knock it.  Smile.

It seems like every coffee shop, from Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts to your local spot, is starting to serve cold brew instead of iced coffee. Coffee snobs are hyped about the switch, but the rest of us are left wondering—what, exactly, is the difference between iced coffee and cold brew? It’s hard not to feel like cold brew is some kind of elaborate marketing ploy, since cold brewed coffee can be even more expensive than iced coffee, which is already more expensive than hot coffee. But saying that a coffee is cold brewed doesn't just mean it's trendy, because there is a very real difference between iced coffee and cold brew brewing methods. It’s hard to say whether cold brewed coffee or iced coffee is better, since that’s all up to personal preference, but the taste of each is distinct, especially once you understand what differentiates each brewing method.

The mere thought of either cold brewed or iced coffee do not hold any appeal for me.  In my humble opinion, the whole purpose of coffee is it's heat!  The hotter the better I always say.  It warms up the innards.  Starts the old noggin to percolatin'.  And before you know it, I'm ready to take on the day!
