    Spending my Sunday behind my computer and reading all these old threads, this one is worth responding to.

    Yes, I am a coffee addict. I know how to make a good cup of coffee. First I extract a very high coffee concentrate, using pure chemical free water. Then I add boiled milk to it.

    For some reason the coffee tastes better when eating a chocolate croissant with it .

    A cup of coffee and a croissant tastes the best when sitting at a table at the Champs-Élysées.
    I miss Paris right now.

    good ole chase and sanburn coffee out of a perculator on the wood stove in the winter is the best thing i can think of to have in the belly before heading out to rabbit hunt or work on the farm on a cold day.

    Yes. I've been home roasting since 2006; mostly American beans (North, Central, and South), but also my own Mokha Java blend (Yemen Mokha Matari and Sulawesi Torajaland, in a 1:3 mix).

    I home-roast with a modified West Bend Poppery popcorn popper:

    At home, I grind my coffee with a KitchenAid model (L); when away, I use my Zassenhaus hand-grinder (R):

    And I brew my coffee in a Bodum Shin Bistro press-pot:

    Hmmm, yes if I didn't spend so much on beans, I could have more straights.

    My wife and I are into good coffee too. I never thought about home roasting until I read this thread. I think I'll check it out.

    I remember drinking C&S back in the 60s and it was a great coffee with a distinctive flavor. I did not know what it was untill the 90s and found out this aroma and flavor was the result of a little Kona. I have not had C&S in many years and should try some just to see if it is still as good.
