Tried JBM and thought it was good so would like to try Kona to compare.

Any recommendations for online sellers that ship outside the US (and stock Kona) would be appreciated.

To be honest, I don't care how my coffee tastes as long as there's no cream/sugar and it's full of caffeine.

Current faves are tulips and wave hearts made on my Vibiemme domobar super paired with a Mazzer Super Jolly. Beans from bertoni - a local roaster in Sydney

I typically use a FP and just use a local dark roast. I have been wanting to try Kona for a while. Anyone have a suggestion what kona coffee to get?

Trader Joes sells 1lb of 100% Kona for $19.95 . Very good, very smooth. Even at that price it's a far better deal than a Starbucks coffee. I like JBM better, but it could be because my brain thinks it must be better because it's so expensive.

I'd get the Peaberry from either of these retailers. You're going to be spending a bit on shipping, might as well get the best possible bean. http://www.kenacoffee.com/store/shippinginfo.php http://www.konaearth.com/Shop/#top

Very nice pours. I'm guessing you're not a professional barista now based on your home machine - were you in the past?

29th and Broadway. It's part of the Ace Hotel, but the door isn't really labeled so you have to look out for it. Awesome coffee, but this is where the beardos and tweeds thrive as baristas.

^ Yeah, just look for people that look like they were really into swing dancing in the 90s.

My first try at being a barista...Hoping for better results tomorrow. The machine...The Bezzera BZ07 PM.

I'm sorry to laugh, but that is a good chuckle. Don't feel bad, I couldn't do any better. And that, god damn it, is a beautiful looking machine.

Haha it was pretty funny. I was definitely over confident.

And thanks, I'm pretty pleased to have it. There is obviously lots of room for me to grow into it...

I'm reviving this thread because I'm a coffee fanatic and only recently discovered that there was a dedicated coffee thread (was about to start one myself, but search is my friend). At any rate, I second the Kona Earth recommendation -- though, in my experience, any benefits of peaberry vs. regular beans are marginal at best. I think a fair amount of the peaberry mythology is marketing hype. Yes, I'm aware of all the supposed benefits in roasting, and certainly aware of the comparative difficulty to produce. I just don't taste the difference in the end result, all else being equal. I also want to throw out a recommendation for Zoka Coffee Roasters, a shop in Seattle from which I source a lot of my beans: http://secure.zokacoffee.com/coffee/..._utmk=39313248 The Costa Rica Calle de Copey that they sell is freaking amazing. Expensive, but worth it.

Another Gimme! Fan.

This week is Ethiopia Amara Gayo through my Aeropress. But Gimme! just had their Las Mingas release party, so I'm looking to work my way through those selections, either by the cup at the shop or by the pound at home.

In NYC, I also like 9th Street and Cafe Grumpy.
