    Black, maybe 1 sugar.

    Bodum french press and a bistro grinder. Considering a Chemex or aeropress.

    Beans: Whatever Peter has recently roasted at work (the 4th largest whole foods). Recently its been Sidama/o or Kenyan.

    Bummed someone grabbed my bag of Dark Lord Intelligensia.

    My wife makes the best coffee and it has wrecked me to all others. That being said I take it with a dash of coffee mate as taking black was giving me heartburn. No sugar

    Black, I use the "Clever Coffee Dripper". I have been into Ethopian coffee lately.

    We have a machine that is randomly loaded by a variety of employees, not of which follow the directions. The results are always the same however, undrinkable coffee (though as I mentioned before my wife is also to blame by spoiling me with great coffee)

    That is why I make coffee at my desk. I did set up an informal coffee share with a few people using a standard drip, but found out everyone else just wanted foldgers so I started to just make my own

    Our coffee thread is quickly turning into a penis thread. How did this happen.

    I only drink black coffee. But I have a problem...I'm not sure I know what "great" coffee is. I drink Dunkin almost exclusively, but when you guys say you/your wife/your hot mom makes "great" coffee, how do they do that? Can it be done with a normal drip coffee machine?

    Good coffee and what most people are used to coffee being are two very different beasts. Coffee shouldn't just be bitter and abrasive. If you're curious, get a clever coffee dripper like posted above and follow the SM guide. Should cost you less than 20$. From there it's up to you to how far down the rabbit hole you go.
