Lets talk about COFFEE - Page 96
Cowboy coffee ftw. Just strain out the grounds with your teeth while you are sipping. Like a MAN.
I actually love coffee made in one of those old school percolators over a fire or campstove. This is certainly almost exclusively an emotional attachment, but what food isn't emotional?
That's an exaggeration. Coffee flavors just diminish with time. A great coffee whose flavors are dampened is still way better than anything you can find in a supermarket.
Freezing beans is mandatory if one is pulling their own shots. If it's drip coffee, I'll let the bag stay out. I'll go through a 12 oz bag in about 1.5 weeks if I drink my morning cup.
I ended up freezing to get the crema and freshness that espresso demands. Sadly my espresso machine is mostly unused as the summer rolls in and I'm cold-brewing coffee overnight instead of making espresso.
