Coffee isn't good for your heart.

A Polish friend described instant coffee as "greasy crap".

Of all the greasy crap, I hear Aldi is good.

I buy it from Whitards of Chelsea: Santos and Java for breakfast and Guautemala Elephant for during the day.

Best coffee I have had is a latte from Monmouth Coffee in Borough Market.

Worst coffee I have ever had was some of the filter coffee sachets left in US hotel rooms, particularly the stuff under the Puck name. Utterly undrinkable.

If done well an independent coffee shop is a billion times better than a chain but I do think it is wrong to entirely dismiss them. They built the vanilla standard of drink that all good places in the province's have taken on board.

Before then Cafe coffee all came in cafetiers or filters and other abominations.

I went into a cafe in Cambridge that sells Blue Mountain. At £15 a cup. I had the Colombian. That is my coffee story.

I love coffee but threads like this scare me

FleurDuMal - 28 May 2018 19:32:16 (#8 of 205)

(((Coffee)))

Is java as strong as it makes itself out to be?

Have been at the coffee-free zone that is my mother's house, for four days. It is good to be reunited with the coffee grinder and espresso machine. The coffee on the ferry was OKish, as it was the boat with the Isle of Wight roasted coffee, rather than the one with Costa.

I enjoy drinking coffee when I'm in ITALY ITALY ITALY, because they make a rubbish cup of tea.

My younger son-in-law is a coffee nerd. I bought him a pack of Blue Mountain for Christmas, and now I'm his (almost) best mate.

Coffee is the new Corbyn!

Verdigris - 28 May 2018 19:47:02 (#15 of 205)

A disaster?

TinyMcOtter - 28 May 2018 19:51:45 (#16 of 205)

Nescafé Dads.

TinyMcOtter - 28 May 2018 19:52:21 (#17 of 205)

Anyway, tea is better.

How do people feel about the newish 3rd wave Hipster espressos relative to the typical Italian beans like Illy, Danesi or Hausbrandt?

I think they're a bit like IPAs, pushing a very specific flavour profile sometimes to excess.

I like Hot Lava Java; also, the Morrisons knock-off Molten Magma. HLJ is higher in caffeine than ordinary coffees, as I understand it.

I'm don't know about the MM, however.

Sainsos do a couple of very nice ones, a Nicaraguan Taste the Difference and a Sumatran one.
