    Xander I don't know what to say other than you are defacing your avatar by speaking about regurgitated (by weasels no less!) coffee beans.

    I always see those for sale cheap! Do you think it makes better coffee than an machine?

    Rice milk first, of course.

    It also just makes better coffee, IMO, richer/fuller taste (my taste echoes Ivy's, gimme diesel, light tan with the spoon standing up). You put the coffee in the bottom of the pot and pour the boiling water in. The water swirls the grounds around until you plunge it, rather than trickling through it on the way down, and hits it hotter.

    Also no chance of the joys of running the coffee machine with the pot slightly askew, causing the valve under the filter cone to stay closed, which makes the basket overflow and causes chunky hot protocoffee to cascade down the sides into an expanding puddle of hazelnut/mocha stain.
    Ahhh, I see. I like my coffee diesel strength too, so maybe I will look into this. I'm never making coffee for more than one person, too, so the size is not an issue. I'd love to get that giant hulk of a coffeepot off the counter.

    This is the one we have. It was a gift- if I had been picking, I would probably have picked this one.

    It figures my name would turn up in a thread about coffee. But y'know, there's a real easy way to solve this whole milk dilemma -- just drink it black, fer cryin' out loud.

    Yep, black's the only way to go. And...buy a Bunn.

    It seems like it's common for people to be very particular about their coffee. When I drink it, I usually just take a spoon of instant coffee, pour boiled water over it (don't have a coffeemaker), put in creamer and sugar, and then stir and drink it.

    I make tea similarly, except I steep the tea bag in the mug for five minutes, and then and either drink it as is, or add cream and sugar.

    Oddly enough, I like regular tea better than iced tea. That seems to be an unusual preference of mine, because I've never met anyone else who liked it (until Xander said he knew people that liked tea).

    It sounds insane, but for someone as disorganized as I am, using anything other than instant in the morning doesn't happen. I know I could set my coffeemaker up in the evening, and sometimes I do, but I forget to push the button in the morning. I'm so terrible at mornings that I've started to drink tea instead of coffee because it requires less movement and ingredients to make.

    Hmmm - maybe I should set up my one-cup French press for the mornings and put it on the counter. That might actually help a bit. Like, I would see it right there in front of me instead of forgetting about it completely.

    Are you serious? I don't even think I've seen anyone drink iced tea for several years. I certainly know I haven't. Maybe I'm biased. Most of my immediate relations, including myself, drink massive amounts of hot tea - sometimes we even drink the real, loose stuff that doesn't resemble sawdust in a filter.

    Actually there is a thing called rice milk for those people who cannot drink the "real" milk. Soya milk can also be found from stores as well as oat milk. I have to use these replacement milks for now because of some reasons that I'm too lazy to explain now.
