Coffee

Posted: Tue Apr 08, 2014 4:47 am



Is anybody here into manual coffee brewing? Like, not auto-drip or Keurig?

I've been working with a V60 lately with some locally roasted beans. Fun stuff. If I had $2000 to throw out, I might buy some fancy espresso grinder and a machine, but you know. A pour over is nice. I really want to try Turkish though.

I like french press for the ease of it, no technique required, but there's too much body and just not enough flavor clarity. The V60 filters are a nice medium between metal strainers and thick filters like a Chemex.

I stopped drinking coffee this year after a 26 year habit. Haven't looked back. No addiction anymore.
Don't need it to function. I can drive long distances without getting off at several exits for caffeine.
No more loads of sugar and coffee mate for me. Substituted water. Don't plan to return. I can say
that my entire body ached for a solid week. Not just a headache. A full body ache. That right there
tells me I was addicted. So there you have it.

That is really cool, I've always told myself I don't want to get addicted to any substance like where I depend on it but I see myself slowly using coffee more now that I have so much to do. I'm trying not to become fully dependant on it, not that coffee is bad for us or anything because black coffee is actually healthy for you but I just don't want to ever depend on any substance to operate, get what I'm saying?

I've had a cup of coffee every morning (pretty much) for over a year now and haven't looked back. I use a keurig, but if there was any way i could have an espresso/cappuccino machine I would be soooooo happy :D

Yeah... I've been drinking coffee every day for several months now. I decided to go out on a limb and not have it one morning; that day sucked. A constant headache, and I never felt awake. I felt asleep for the entire day. That tells me that I've developed a bit of a dependence on it... I need to get off of it if I want to march corps because that's going to be a problem. I don't load it up with sugar, cream, milk or anything. None of that milkshake crap you get from Starbucks.

Oh well. I enjoy it now. I've got what... like, six months? Yeah.

The dehydrating effects of caffeine is why you can't/shouldn't drink pop or coffee on tour. So a caffeine patch would be no better

Eat an apple, twice as much caffeine as a cup of coffee and 100% all natural.

I eat one pretty much every day. No wonder I never sleep lol. And coffee is natural, as long as you use actual coffee and not like the mocha latte crap for kuerig.

Well so are lima beans but you still have to cook them to make them edible haha.
Never use the word 'natural' in excuse of something. Poison ivy, e.coli, and bears all happen to be just as natural as a cucumber.

And no, I don't just drink coffee because I'm addicted to it, nor do I think it's super healthy (or super unhealthy). I really enjoy it and it's something to look forward to in the morning. If I wanted to eat something healthy in the morning I'd eat something naturally fibrous (granola, gran, etc.), which I do, just not as regularly as coffee.

I drink three cups of black coffee every morning and enjoy it. I have a good pad practice while slurping on my coffee and a great dump each morning as well thanks to the mild laxative effect it has. I am not worried about being "addicted" to caffeine because I really don't care. There are far worse addictions in life.

FROM LIVESTRONG.COM:

How Much Caffiene Is in an Apple?
Apples are a good source of many nutrients. For example, a typical small apple has 12 percent of your daily recommended intake of fiber, 10 percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin C, and trace amounts of minerals such as calcium, potassium, and manganese. However, apples do not contain any caffeine.

The Origin of the Question
Googling "apples caffeine coffee" turns up several pages of links to sites where people have asked the question "Does an apple contain more caffeine than coffee?" The misconception seems to stem from the fact that apples have sugar in them -- an average small apple has about 13 g of it -- and that people are equating the energy boost they get from a cup of coffee with the energy boost they presumably get from eating an apple.

Dr. Grandjean: A critique of the published controlled research shows that consuming caffeinated beverages during physical performance does not increase urine output or detrimentally affect performance.

They just won't drink as much. In some cases, this can increase their risk of dehydration.  - See more at: http://beverageinstitute.org/us/expert/ ... omFtu.dpuf

misinformation? idk.

I've been mixing this stuff (see pic) in my hydration pack for my long weekend runs and it works pretty awesome. Energy levels stay pretty high and even-keeled throughout a workout.

Drum corps should consider hydration packs for rehearsals. You could pretty much eliminate all water breaks and people would be more hydrated / higher energy levels / better mental focus than without. :)

Sorry this is pretty off topic from the OP.

I like coffee. I own a mid-tier espresso machine although I don't use it very often. It is pretty awesome at steaming milk and produces a decent espresso shot. The only downside is that it is really labor intensive.

I have very well-informed parents when it comes to food. The sugar in apples gives you a carb high, also known as a sugar rush, but it's bad for touring because at the end of a high always comes a low and you feel, as well as perform, like crap when you have a carb based diet. Caffeine does not harm you really besides its addictiveness(provided you don't consume it close to the time you go to sleep.) the reason a lot of people say caffeine is bad for you is because the bad effects that they think caffeine gives them are actually from the 40g of sugar giving you a high and a low in sodas, etc.

Caffeine addiction is just that, an addiction. I kicked coffee this past summer after drinking several cups a day for
27 years straight. I finally decided to kick the habit. I had pains from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. Not
just a headache like some would tell you. It literally took 7 full days until I was totally through the withdrawal symptoms.
I know everyone reacts differently, but for me it was painful. I haven't touched a cup since then and don't plan to. The
mounds of sugar and coffee mate are no longer part of my diet. I can drive long distances without having to get off at
several exits to find coffee. I get up in the morning and can function without it. I substituted water for the coffee and
I'm better off for it.
