That is so true. A coffee cup status symbol - are we stupid or what?

I do like their coffee
But they can choke on it for their prices.


You want very, I mean very good coffee?
No bitterness, low acid?

I love this product
This is how I make coffee.

Cold Brew
And it's cheaper than 90% of the coffee makers out there.

So, you just add water and heat in the microwave or on the stove?

Yup

You cold brew overnight by just letting it sit! and keep the concentrate in the refrigerator.
Put it in your coffe cup
Add water
Nuke it

Prob saving electric too

Mellow and tasty coffee

I prefer roasting my own coffee.  Nothing is like the taste of your own roasted, own grinded coffe.  And it is not that difficult.  I just use a simple popcorn popper.

There are some pictures here:
