    Yes, it is. I really quite like it here.



    D'Amico definitely isn't the most gourmet place around, but I love it for what it is. And honestly, it makes a great cup of coffee. Perhaps not the most complex cup, but for a morning drinker? It's great. And I love supporting an old school place like that that has been around forever.

    Try Fonte Coffee out of Seattle

    It it the best coffee I have ever had

    Order "Bin 16"

    They only roast this variety once a week, on Tuesdays.

    Order easily off their web site

    The owner is a multi millionaire who went on a quest to roast the best coffee in the world

    Spared no expense on equipment and expertise

    The results show in the product

    I got a french press and a burr grinder as gifts...anyone have some advice on a starting point to learn a little? A website on where to buy good beans, somewhere to see reviews, etc?

    Sweet Maria's has a good library of stuff, but their French Press tip sheet should get you going:

    http://www.sweetmarias.com/brewinstr/brewinginstr.frenchpress.php

    For good beans, I'd try to find a local roaster so you can easily get freshly-roasted beans, but there are plenty of Internet ordering sites. This thread alone has dozens of recommendations. Which one you pick depends on what you like. But between good, fresh beans and the equipment you have already, you have the capability to make better coffee than almost any coffee shop out there.

    I just got the Blue Bottle Ethiopian Nekisse. This is one of the best coffees I've had in a long, long time, but it's a bit expensive and comes in a stupid can. $15/150g or 5.3 oz. It's a naturally processed bean, and has that characteristic fermented fruit flavor because of it. It's like a chocolate-dipped peach cobbler, but with a fairly acidic undertone. For once, the breathless text on the packaging describing the coffee is not that far from the truth, even the insipid analogy.

    https://store.bluebottlecoffee.com/products/-Small-Lots-%2d-Ethiopia-Nekisse-.html

    They will brew it for you in their stores if you want to try it out first, but they only do the stupid expensive siphon method ($6/cup or $12 for a large) as far as I can tell.

    Anyway, try it before it's gone --- it's a pretty limited run.

    Y, you're my go-to guy when it comes to trying new coffees, but that description pretty much sums up why BB is the ground zero of what's wrong with coffee today. Anything new at Peet's for the working man?
