'Gevalia Coffee' first thing in the morning....

I got up this morning and made Gevalia Coffee with Frontenac Spring Water from the Thousand Islands area of Northern New York.  As I sit her contemplating how darned delicious this coffee is, I wonder, Gentleman:  What is your favorite coffee experience - something you truly enjoy and savour?  I believe I am open to the thought of some new and exciting coffee experiences. 

I love and savour Gevalia Traditional Roast coffee made with spring water...a little sweetener... a little splash of Wawa Dairy whole milk!  It is better than any coffee I've ever had, anywhere.  What a GREAT way to start my day!

Can you share - What coffee and what brewing method - really makes an impression on you -that you actually savour your morning 'cup of Joe'?  I'm very curious to hear everyone's opinions.

Best coffee I ever had by far (and I, too, get Gevalia, although I prefer the Signature Blend) was on my honeymoon in Jamaica.  Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee....you can get it through Gevalia but it is obscenely expensive (much more than I'm willing to pay for mail order).

Only way to drink it is BLACK.

That French Press worked great deployed without electricity and no way of actually regulating heat for water.  I never was able to get a proper boil, pretty muc just steep to strength.

 

On another note, I just spent a month in Europe putting up with their shitty coffee.  As much as I hate it when I'm here, my first meal home, whenever I come back from where I've been, is usually a Starbucks latte and a Big Mac.  There's something to be said about tasting America.

My wife used to get Gevalia (like a book of the month club, but for coffee, right) because they offered a free black ceramic canister to keep the stuff, and then cancel. I don't remember the coffee being other than good...

My best coffee experience ever was when I was stationed with these people for my job as a lad. They had what I remember they called an Aroma-roast, that is, the thing not only made the coffee, but roasted and ground the beans.

Made with spring water, and with half and half added I remember it made a cup of coffee better than sex.

Nowadays it's whatever fair-trade my wife finds on sale, with tap water (we have delicious well water). It's kept in the Gevalia container we still have. We always put the half and half in first, then add the coffee, no stirring needed.

I can almost see that like a scene in a movie.  Very cool!

I like Starbucks better when it has cooled down a bit...takes the 'burned' flavor out of the coffee..but then, I like coffee when it is either cool or cold, too.

Don't really care for the french pressed method of making coffee.  There is a little stand-alone coffee shop near my work, that charges - no lie - $4.00 for a cup of french-pressed coffee.  Freakin unbelievable!

One of my best times is enjoying a good cup of hot coffee on a crisp cold NNY spring morning - just as the sun is coming up - listening and watching the birds come alive from my deck over-looking Lake Ontario.  Even though it is (really) cold, the birds are unbelievably loud and happy to be alive.

I have no idea what you're talking about, but, I once caught a break and was able to make some coffee using a french press, some kind of bottled water from Saudi heated up on Humvee exhaust, using Starbucks grounds shipped to me by my ex.  Enjoyed as the sun came up over the dunes in Anbar back in '04.

Out to Build Bridges

This is a LGBTQ+ group.  All men are encouraged to join, including straight men.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate is expected, but this is for building up bridges not…See More
