    Bad Coffee or a can of coke

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,

    Thought I would de-lurk now that Im the proud owner of a Gaggia Classic. Im still well in the learning curve, but this site has been great in terms of finding information and Im sure ill be bugging the gurus in weeks to come!

    Anyway, despite my snobbery nowhere near reaching the levels of others on the BeanBay, I cant stand crap coffee.

    So, just for a bit of fun, I thought I would ask what you all would choose if you needed a caffeine & sugar fix:
    A bad coffee
    or
    A can of coke

    Personally I would go the Coke anyday over a Blend 43!

    Hi redgsr,

    Welcome to CoffeeSnobs mate [smiley=thumbsup.gif], lots of people here who are only too happy to make new members feel right at home and help out when ever called upon, so when youre ready just fire away ;).

    By the way, I think its been pointed out by someone else before but we are CoffeeSnobs with the emphasis on the Coffee, not the hardware you make it with..... so long as at the end of the day youre getting the best coffee you can with the equipment you have, and theres absolutely nothing wrong with a Classic, makes a terrific brew 8-). All the best,

    Mal.

    Gave up drinking straight Coke 20 years ago, Partial to it in Captain Morgan Rum though, I carry a Stella SS Neapolitan Pot in my Ute and Grind some beans every couple of days.. And a Birko to heat the Water.. Cant drink international roast without Milk though..
    However can Drink Pablo instant as when we arrived on the Gold Coast in 67 the water was that bad that one could not drink Tea, only Pablo killed the taste, Strange Eh..

    Bad coffee :P *Ugh*shudder* :P

    There are very few places where I will drink their coffee. Most places serve pure swill and I wont let it get anywhere near my mouth.

    Re: Bad Coffee or a can of coke

    Thanks all for your support - ive only had the machine for 24 hours now, and thanks to the advice on this site and others, im starting to make coffees that are better than some that I have bought at (bad) cafes.

    Of course I am nowhere near the quality of the best cafes, and realise I have a hell of a lot to learn, but reading all the valuable info has definitely kick-started things.

    A can of coke any day if its between those two. :-/
    But I do have tea- black no sugar- if Ive had too much coffee- and that does happen sometimes and feel a bit- blarr :-X
    I dont see myself as a snobby person- but Im sure others think I am when I request a tea at someones house while they make themselves a brew of dark smelly stuff they call coffee. ;D
    Great to have you aboard mate

    Bad Coffee??

    Fortunately/Unfortunately I am a real CS when out and around - only a handful of Melbournes cafes will get my order for a good coffee these days.....

    Its any wonder that their Coke fridges are always full! 8-)

    In 1982, I ordered a cappucino at a roadhouse halfway across the Nullarbor on a trip to Perth. When the old duck poured Carnation Milk ("fridge on the blink luv...") into the frothing jug, I quietly walked back to the bus.......
