    Kona is great if you can get 100%. The blends aren't as good in comparison. Man, now I want some coffee.

    There ya go! one of those should do the trick.

    I topped yesterday's coffee mixup today...ground 10 cups of coffee put it in the machine, hit start... took me 20 minutes to realize it would brew faster if I also put water in the machine.
    :confused:

    That looks fantastic! You're having a rough go with the coffee machine. The plus side is it's going to be hard to top no water.

    There's still scope for forgetting to turn it on

    Thanks for that! :p
    If I do that tomorrow I'm blaming your jinx! Worst part was i'm making my lunch and breakfast, puttering around the kitchen and looked at the pot two or three times wondering why the h3ll it hadn't brewed yet

    I have a habit of getting the pot ready the night before and then forgetting to hit the program button so it starts at 5am... My wife hates that because then she doesn't get any coffee. Maybe it's a subconscious thing so I get more coffee... :oops:

    Oh and the Chai tea thing, they would put the leaves directly in the pot and brew it and then would use a hard candy for sweetener. Can't seem to find the right chai leaves though...

    Arabian Moka Java brewed at home every morning. Brewed strong, drunk black. If I'm lucky I find estate grown Java or s good Indonesian blend I haven't yet tried on occasion. I want to get a small roasting set up to begin roasting my own beans. That's the new hotness. Homebrewing is soooo last year...

    Not much of a tea drinker, but I like an occasional English Breakfast Tea...

    Well, at least for today, I managed to avoid Dave's jinx. Not only did I remember water, and grounds, but I also successfully set the timer and it was ready for me when I got downstairs at 7:00AM.

    I know you were all concerned about my ongoing coffee troubles. Thank you for all your support

    Starbucks tried to open a store here in Adelaide. It was only open for a few months before it had to close. Why? Because Adelaide has a very very healthy cafe scene. Adelaideans know good coffee and expect to get it. And these days 9.5/10 times you'll get it. Compared to the coffee that is readily available here, Starbucks was $%*t and so they had to close. I dont think I've ever been prouder of my city :D

    LOVE THIS! I've never been a fan of their coffee, over roasted to hide inferior flavor, in my opinion. The whole hipster vibe only added to my loathing LOL

    Starbucks almost always has a burnt flavor to me. I don't really care for that taste.

    It really is quite inferior. These are the only Starbucks I like ;)

    ElyDave, I'd love an authentic Chai recipe, if you wife doesn't mind sharing. . .

    I saw this online with the caption "Starbucks in Starbucks. Your argument is invalid"
