My Dr prescribed some medication that "might make you drowsy." Bloody hell if it made me sleep like a baby for the whole night but not only that when I got up I was a zombie - all I wanted to do was sleep! That was the prefect excuse to make a big Jez-vey of Turkish Coffee.

It was strong and sweet - lovely.

Had one of our clients from Jamaica bring us a packet as a gift before. Simply lovely. Like you I could not find it anywhere but there is a local restaurant in Chelmsford called Jamaica Blue which sell it.

When I was in Bali a few years ago I drank a coffee made from coffee cherries which were eaten and then sh@t out by a monkey like animal, called kopi luwak. So I literally drank a cup of ****. I hadn't realised at the time but it turns out it is the most expensive coffee in the world, selling for a few hundred quid.

So that animal basically shits money? I need to get me one.

The thing I wonder, is who first thought of this ?

"Hmm, let's see, that animal just ate and **** coffee beans, (well you wouldn't know that it actually couldn't digest the beans at first would you?) let me clean them up, roast and drink it's poop."

My thoughts exactly C 'a

Same goes for milk though, although more understandable given the fact we feed from our mothers as babies, but I have always wondered how perverse the very first person who looked at a cow and thought "I'm gonna yank those teats and drink the milk that comes out" was.

I'd imagine it's more that cows can produce lots of milk. Plenty of people drink sheep or goats milk. Similarly goats cheese is delicious, which raises another question - who decided that blue cheese looked and smelt like something to eat?

I've got some of this stuff at home. Has quite a distinct chocolate-like flavour

A nice cup once in a while, but not an everyday coffee for me

There's probably a good reason for that but it escapes me at the moment....

I think they just went for the teets. The milk was an unexpected bonus.

Quite impressed with the Aeropress after half a dozen uses. There's still lots of variables involved - especially finding the best coffee to use in it - but the actual process absolutely does yield better coffee :thup:

Do you buy already ground and if so does normal grind work? Or buy whole bean and do a home grind?

Am going to order one for when I get back to Texas and will take some coffee with me. Question is take beans or already ground?

I don't have one, but their website recommends an espresso grind ie fine.

The bubble at work had an aeropress today. The coffee looked and smelt great. I might have to invest.
