    I get beans from a local roaster in Cranberry TWP. PA. I'm not the coffee connoisseur that JimR is but I savor a freshly ground blend of various Arabica beans. Usually a blend of Colombian Supremo; a mild Costa Rican and an Ethiopian Sidamo. A dark roast pushes the flavor profile and sometimes I'll opt for a medium roast of those same beans, less the African beans.
    My taste varies too at times. If I want a smooth cup I'll use the french press but most of the time it's the Bunn.

    I always measure the water temp, and adjust it to 195 degrees,,,

    I do "pre-wet" the grounds with about a tablespoon of water, while waiting for the water to heat,,,

    We have a tiny microwave,, to heat 12 ounces of water, it takes 3 minutes,,,

    Ahhhh yes the Keurig. We are on our second one. The first lasted 6 years, actually it is still working, but is now our in our camper. The one we have now is not quite a year old. It is much more high tech with a touch screen, etc. We have well water that is filtered with the tightest filter I can get. I think in 6 years, we descaled the first Keurig once. This new one has been descaled once already. We also have had "pressure" problem messages showing up on the screen with grounds blown all over the inside, a real PITA to clean up. I finally called Keurig and as soon as they heard "well water", they had the solution. The new machines have so many sensors, they don't recommend using well water. So I started buying jugs of water from the grocery store and the problem has stopped, almost immediately. I'm so happy to buy water filters, then have to buy jugged water.....NOT! But Mrs. CP needs her morning cup of coffee, 7 days a week.

    Lots of people will tell you that Starbuck's "regular" coffee tastes bitter and/or burnt to them. That burnt flavoring is because they are roasting so much coffee that they turn up the heat to get it done faster. If you try a cup of their "regular" and a cup of their "mild" you can really taste the difference. They are both made with the exact same beans but the regular is roasted at a 50 degree higher temp.

    When you're doing your own roasting all the science behind it gets pretty heavy. Different sugars within the beans melt (caramelize) at different temps so you can play with things and adjust the flavor profiles of different beans.

    I’m not cad but I can answer the question. It called a “pour over” brewer. You manually pour the water thru the grounds in the upper(filter) part and the coffee is collected below. As he describes he can use precisely the water temp he wants (hot) and it brews fast so the coffee is the best it can be.

    If, and it’s very infrequently, I lower myself to going to Starbucks I always get something they have to make via pour-over, it’s the only way I can stand to have their coffee brewed.

    It is basically a miniature "Mr Coffee" coffee maker, without the tank, or heater,,
    you heat your own water, and pour it over the grounds,,

    They come in several sizes,, I think the one I own is a 4 cup size, or 24 OZ of coffee.
    The max I make is 12 OZ..

    The thing is barely larger than a coffee mug,, and the screen is "permanent", no paper filters needed,,,

    I hate "stuff" on the kitchen counter,, I tossed 3 cans of baked beans, now, there is room in the cabinet to store it,,,

    AND, the coffee costs about (I guess) 1/20th of what most Keurig cups cost,,, (Did I mention I am CHEAP!!?? )

    That mini-maker cost about $10 at Walmart,,,

    Not related to the Kerrig things but water - while reading this interesting thread I thought about the water used. To me water from different sources tastes different - so I am sure your coffee would taste different. I have spring water in my house - I canít stand the city water when I go to Wendyís so I always bring my own. Iíve never tasted bottled water so donít know about that.

    I love my coffee. Ever since I quit drinking beer about 12 years ago Iíve really come to like it. Have tried quite a few different brands but have settled on Tim Hortonís the past few years. Nothing comes close for me.

    When out on a road trip I like to get my mug full of coffee for the long ride home. I have a heck of a time finding coffee I like. I used to get Sheetz coffee (local mini mart chain) but since about a couple years ago I canít stand it. Donít know what changed. So now in the town where we usually go for groceries I tried a GetGo mini mart - their signature blend works for me.

    In another town where we go to a lot of doctor visits I end up going to Eat n Park restaurant on the way out just for my travel coffee - very good.

    I donít know what blend my Tim Hortonís coffee is but oh so good for me!

    Before I got into the Tim Hortonís it was Dunkin Donuts for me also. I had to buy it 400 miles away when on my mail run but now I see they have it at Walmart.

    Regular ground coffee is getting harder to find. I wanted to get my wifeís dad a selection of coffee for Christmas. I couldnít find Green Mountain anywhere in ground bags - ended up having to order from Amazon. Here to find out that Keurig now ownís Green Mountain. I have no interest in those single cup coffee maker things and neither does her dad.
