Found a great mug, went w/ the Contigo snapseal 20oz.



Keeps the drinks hot for up to 12hrs, actually, too hot laugh.gif

Keeps drinks cold for up to 8hrs. Put some iced coffee in at 6:30a, drank it all by 9:30a, ice was still solid at 9:30p pimp.gif

If you want to simulate Vietnamese coffee at Starbucks:

Starbucks double shot
1 classic
Light milk

I've also seen people order 4 shots of espresso with 2-4 pumps of white mocha.

I'm not a big fan of coffee but I was Portugal 12 years ago and we got a set menu deal at a local restaurant. They came out with something that looked like that at the end - it was like rocket fuel but it was delicious.


Still never found out what it was.

Found something close this time last year. Was in Cyprus for a meeting and at breakfast one morning a guy I was with ordered "a little Greek one" and it was very good. Some sort of double brewing thing - gritty at the bottom but thick and delicious.

We got a new machine at home that the local store sells generic pods for and they're much cheaper.

Yeah I've only found the Nespresso branded pods for them. But it's not too bad. I'm usually a double shot drinker, so two pods a day is still cheaper than going to Starbucks for me. (unfortunately where I live it's Starbucks or crap coffee.) It's pretty much under a dollar per shot. Sometimes I do one regular espresso shot and then reuse the pod for another one. It's a lighter brew but it still tastes decent.

It's a few years since I said that and there are plenty of generic ones available now.

I've not had anything better than cold press recently. No bitterness at all and good hot or cold. It makes a kind of dense syrup which you can keep in the fridge and just dilute with hot or cold water. Fresh coarsely ground beans are all you need.

Starbucks actually sells Vietnamese beans from dalat in their reserve line

It's really mild tho

Its robusta while Vietnamese coffee is usually arabica with chickory

Made my first cold brew over the weekend in my French press. Thanks for the inspiration, fellas! I'll definitely be making these more often.

Anyone else feel as if their Keurig machine coffee is only hot for a short period of time mean.gif . Every cup I have gets cold way too quick.

Try using a double-wall mug - usually keeps my coffee at the right temperature for a while longer
