Starbucks if there's nothing else around. I always feel like their drip coffee is over-roasted, however.Never my first choice. Peets has better roasted drip. Super-duper strong, though.

I use a single cup dripper at home. Been thinking about upgrading either to a french press or a Bialetti Moka.
There's a place on Portola near the Hook that still serves single-drip cups, or at least it did as of a year or 2 ago.

A couple of cups of coffee, a great big dump, and I'm good to go for the day!

yeah coffeetopia on the east side was a short walk from my bungalo. they used to have a good drip sumatran.

our local roaster has the best bean (italian roast) i've ever homemade. every time i've forced myself to try another bean - i've regretted it.

Best coffee I had was in a town on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, can't remember the name smokin Beans picked directly from the mountain and brewed into a super long drip espresso in a 12 ounce mug facelick I've been ruined ever since bawling

Had the poop coffee in Bali. The lesser acidity was noticeable and enjoyable. Although I think the place could have brewed it better/stronger, because otherwise it wasn't super memorable shrug Anyone ever think about how they came up with that confused2 Did a Luak raid some coffee fiends stash of beans, and dude was so desperate for coffee that he picked the beans out the poop and brewed it up- then realized it was super tasty confused2 roflmao

Moka Pot aka :Poor Man's Espresso" is pretty awesome, used to do that religiously- need to get back into it beer

I'm a big fan of a long drip espresso with whipped cream on top. The hot coffee through the cold cream before it melts is facelick

I find pour overs to be too technical and gear intensive to get a consistently good brew and to be an overall pain in the arse- water temperature has to be just right, time spent seeping the grinds before repouring, etc. I'd rather hit the button on the coffee maker and work on something else roflmao

Starbucks in nothing special, however they are conveniently placed near freeway exits. I drive a lot for work, so if I have limited time to grab a cup of coffee and hit the pisser it does the job shrug

Coffee could be the last vice I ever give up beer cheers

I used to work for the Beanery back in the day when living in Corvallis.

What do you think of their coffee bean products?

Can't you just put that butter on some tasty hunk of good bread rather than in the beverage?

I know the stomach won't mind too much either way, but think about the tongue. hat

we're bulletproofishing ours. used to use a stick blender but actually found that vigorously shaking it all up in a mason jar (or in a sealed coffee mug) froths it up as well.

that's exactly where i learned of good coffee starting back in '90. where you there in the 90's perchance?

really barista dependent results - but they have among the best mexi-mocha "the beanery" i've ever had.
