    I mean real barista made coffee with good quality coffee beans.

    I discovered real decent coffee about two years ago while living in Chiang Mai as up to that point Id only ever tried the freeze dried instant stuff you buy from the super market and thought it was awful. I'm now hooked and have been trying to emulate at home what I can get from a decent coffee shop (not costa!) with all number of gadgets.

    Recently I purchased an Aeropress which I must say is a great little tool. Anyone else into their coffee?

    Love coffee and have some how become one of those "I cant function properly in the morning until I've had one" kinds of people ha ha

    I don't mind the odd instant but usually use my coffee filter machine, is that what it's called? Love coffee to start the day

    Another great idea for coffee I found out in Chiang Mai were these cup pour over bags, I brought a couple of boxes back of my favourite brand but they didnt last long. Ive not seen many of these over here though.

    I like strong coffee hence the death wish coffee. Taste is strong but very smooth – gave my folks a taste when they were visiting a few days ago and they liked it. Didn’t mention what it was at first though!

    I have another coffee machine that I have set on a timer that grinds the coffee beans so they are ready in the morning – using Lavazza Qualita Rossa coffee beans just now.

    Need to experiment with the making of the coffee as I haven't mastered a latte as yet!

    i enjoy a coffee, but not overly into it i guess.

    I get a costa every morning on way into work, vanilla latte sorts me right out :D

    I spent the first 5 years of my life drinking it, then the next 39 not, I got back in to coffee a couple of months ago but don't drink alot.

    I got in to coffee more for the whole Bullet Proof coffee thing (read up on it, it's interesting), I spent some money on decent BP type coffee beans and a single coffee maker.

    My folks have owned in one form or another a decent bean to cup coffee maker for the last 10 years and love their coffee, they get different blends and enjoy most of them.

    It may baffle you Apexes, but that is expensive stuff.

    Seen it on storage hunters, think it was £300 a pack, and he had 10 packs
