I use a French Press and no matter what kind of coffee I use, I've never had a bitterness problem, as long as it isn't a really cheap brand. I, too, prefer to use almond milk but the one with coconut milk or cream in it comes out much richer. Yes, it does have some fat, but at least it's not dairy.I agree about using a picnh of salt. Mt Dad swore by that.

It's not the size of the cup, it's the amount of coffee in it. But if you want a more objective answer, things start to get murky because different coffee experts define a cup different things depending on their agenda. Most of the big-name percolator companies including KitchenAid, Bunn, Mr. Coffee, etc. advertise a "cup of coffee" as being 5-oz. because ...

Actually, almond milk in coffee always tastes bitter to me, even when the black coffee is wonderful without a trace of bitterness. I believe there is a chemical change in the mixture. However, since not many people sense this, I wonder if it is also individual taste perception. I have only tried commercial almond milk, so I am going to try making it and see ...

When I make coffee to substitute for instant I grind it real fine and make it in a small french press using triple the amount of coffee I would normally use for drinking. I strain it and I reduce the amount of liquids in my recipes. There are things it won't work for such as in chocolates as water will ruin chocolate. I haven't tried brewing it with heated ...

Not that this is not an interesting question, its main problem, (and there are several), is that it asks for particulars with respect to the general rather than asking for particulars about something in particular. This creates a logical fallacy. Yes, Starbucks® house blend is always processed as what the industry calls a gravity feed or gravity fed brew, ...

One coffee bean has 4-12mg of caffeine in it. About half of that is extracted when brewed with a standard home drip machine. Heres the math: Its common knowledge that a decent 8oz cup of Starbucks is 180mg of caffeine. Say you used a machine that held 60oz of water and had a regular sized basket up top which was filled with approx 600 little beans (you ...

A quick internet search "Café Brulot" returns a number of recipes. There is even a scan of"Good Taste Today" by Emily Post in the St. Petersburg Times Feb 6 1938) that describes the Café Brulot (not a recipe). http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=nx9PAAAAIBAJ&sjid=Wk0DAAAAIBAJ&pg=3267%2C872400

In my experience, you're going to get a lot of degradation with pre-ground coffee regardless of the steps you take to protect it. As mentioned in other posts (ex: What is the best way to store ground coffee?) you're looking to do the following: Prevent the coffee as much as possible from contact with air. Avoid moisture absorption (from air). Avoid ...

Turkish coffee refers to the method of making coffee, not a type of coffee. Also known as mocha or kahve, it is traditionally made in an ibik using cold water to prolong the time the coffee "brews" and releases flavour. The ibik (aka cezve in Arabic) was invented in the 16th century, replacing the previous method of steeping the coffee in hot water set in ...

It is NOT necessary to store coffee in the freezer. It can be helpful if you want to store it for long periods - i.e. months. Ground coffee should NOT be thawed and re-frozen, nor opened frequently and put-back in the freezer. Think of your freezer as long-term storage, and take out a week's worth of coffee at a time. Also, it's not going to make a ...
