There is no such thing as coffee that is too strong.

If you water down espresso, it is called Americano.

You are not watering down espresso because the espresso
is too strong.

Dang. In 14 years running this website, you are the first person to say "My coffee is too strong..."

I kid you not - more than 10,000,000 people have looked at this website... and you are the first to use that word.

:huh: Colin, I finally get your meaning.

How is this ... it was great for an espresso like shot (but we all know a stovetop cannot creat a true espresso), but would have been to much too fast to have that way yesterday morning. I was in need of a cup of joe ... in other words a full cup of coffee. When I get like that having straight espresso is like having a shooter at the bar ... over too quickly and I could have several in the same time frame. Yummy sure, but a little much caffeine too fast for me thanks.

I do like to make Americano's with my moka pot. About half and half is pretty much right on the button in most cases. As I drink my coffee black it gives me a chance to see how the coffee does in several different ways. Yesterday, Americano style. This morning I'll give it a run through the Bellman, for a try and then make up a coffee press. I do like to experiment with my coffee :)

There are days / mornings when an espresso is perfect though. With that in mind, the Bellman is on the stove starting to do it's thing. I will let you know how that turns out.

Take it a little easy on a guy, especially one that isn't a bonafide coffee taster/tester. I'm learn'n as I go in this thread. Note to self this morning ... avoid the word 'strong' ... it messes up Colin :P

Cheers, Guy :side:

Well hello y'all. It is I, proprietor of the very bean. Is this allowed? Too bad, here I go.

I can tell you I have the least experience with coffee of all of youze, but I am the one with of all of here, so go figure. I love the stuff and can drink it all day.

For whatever reason, it just does not take the same amount of beanage (new word) that another coffee might. Maybe because it is so fresh, so rich or so good?

Some is on its way to you Colin, so you can tell us for yourself!

Cheers bean babes!

Lisa

Once we get on an official "beans in exchange for banner", all will be good - in the mean time I will look the other way.

;)

Message to other vendors: This is not a free advertising area.

Lisa has sent us samples and will be sending us more samples for review - and we will be putting up a banner.

That's commerce baby!

Do I get a banner? What is a banner btw? Yes I had too much coffee this morning. The coffee press turned out most excellent. I'll tell you about it later as I'm at work right now.

Oh and darn staight this isn't an advertising area ... this is my thread ... which Colin was so kind as to have a place for me to put my drivel at/in/to or what have you.

Cheers, Guy :side:
