Sounds like you gotta talk to Farrell about that one.

I don't drink coffee or try not to, I drink 5 hour energy shots, people have been telling me it's really bad for you.

Thoughts?

I don't know much about those stuff. Sounds unpleasant to me, but it's your brain - whatever cranks your difference engine.

But what's your beef with coffee? Coffee's brilliant. Coffee is the black goddess of mathematics, the demon lover, that which availeth. She brings insight and she points the way to the truth. Not to mention, she scatters with fists of burning thunder the headaches that cripple us in the mornings and sometimes in the afternoon. She parts clouds, and succours the bedrizzled and the down-at-heart.
Coffee is your friend. Turn not your face away, lest ye be curst with slumberings at ill-fated times, such as in the middle of an important meeting or something.

LOL! Nice Poem about Coffee.

I have no beef with coffee and I do drink it in the worst case emergency needed situation. It does strange things to me for some reason. Same with Frappuccino/Cappuccino, and other forms of Coffee.

I work at Panera, so when I brew coffee for the restaurant I just snag some.

I'm rather astonished by the number of replies already!

I suggest a french press. First off, there's no need to buy paper filters. Secondly, as long as you can heat water you can make coffee, it's not dependant on a single energy source.

On the flip side, do not get a home espresso machine. They suck. They tend to be under powered, making terrible espresso. They also tend to break after only a few months of use. Professional machines are not an option either as they are designed for the heavy load of a coffee house and are intended to be left on about 98% of the time (not to mention very very expensive).

I find I have to balance convenience and flavor. French pressed coffee tastes amazing, but it takes a bit more effort to make. I'm a zombie in the morning. I need something that equates to "push button; receive coffee", so I use a Keurig. Really, if you only drink a few cups a day at home, it's great. If you are the kind of person that drinks several cups throughout the day, it'll be too expensive and wasteful, unless you also use the re-usable cup that supersloth mentioned. But I swear by it. I'll make french press coffee when I want a treat, Keurig when I just need caffeine.

K-cups are my goto for workdays, but when I have time (or when we're camping) it's french pressed for me.

Get a Keurig.
Then get Donut House k-cups.
Make. Sip. Enjoy.


This. I also like the Green Mountain Hazelnut coffee. Easiest thing to do in the morning.
