    I will be ordering Ethiopian heirloom single origin espresso roast - thanks Spike - now I have 2 additional sources for coffee
    PhaetonFalling and Spike, any other coffees you like from Stumptown?
    I brew espresso but also use Aeropress sometimes.

    I did the Black cat coffee, forums fave etc. back in the day but have bought local since and it is costly and about time for variety - thanks

    No arguments from Stumptown from me; not life changing, though it's been so long since I first had really good coffee. My first life changing coffee/espresso was from Vivace in Seattle. You really have to know what you are doing, but when you get it right it is pretty amazing stuff. I am not a big fan of Mokapots; can you make a good cup with it? Sure, why not. Anytime you add heat to coffee, you shorten it's lifespan, and it already has a very short lifespan...minutes at room temperature after grinding. I usually grind it, tamp, and put into my grouphead (espresso machine) within 2 minutes, then am pulling the shot within 3 minutes. Mokapots take awhile for the heat to come up, then virually perculate right? Too much heat, too much time = burnt coffee. I'm a huge fan of human ingenuity, people always find a way to make things work. BTW, to the OP if you would like some coffee but don't have the money now, PM me your address and I will send you some...Jason

    I am really ashamed - I picked up a cup at McD's drive-thru this morning... Need t get back into the swing again, still underusing my machine. I second the Vivace coffe's, had the dolce and I really liked it. Always wanted to try Black Cat but never have,

    Let's move the coffee stuff over to the coffee thread.

    http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...-thread/page12

    I'll post my recommendations over there.

    My newest and best knife purchase so far. Some of you might recognise the maker's mark

    It's a 210 petty Tilman (or Rottman as he's known here) made for me. In the passaround forum 2 of his Niolox/SB1 knives are being passed around forum members
