    I have tried a bunch, continue to do so, but I always seems to come back to this company for my coffee:

    In particular, their Dark Vengeance from their Dark Line in off the charts good:

    Finally, if you want to take your coffee to an 11 in both taste and various health benefits, my Bomb Proof Coffee Recipe is what you want:

    9E8A8167-5526-4ABD-9198-070E1C172EAB.jpeg I think the key to good coffee is starting with good water.

    My secret Santa arrived yesterday!! I thought I was the only early shipper!!! ..... yes, still sealed!!

    Package will be sent later today. I'm going to be the devil and tell you to open when you get whoever you are. Fresh beans are best enjoyed fresh after all!

    For those who don't know -- there is a noticeable difference between commercial restaurant , diner etc and other types , supermarket etc and I've known this for years .I assume the non-commercial types have a preservative and I have a good reason to believe it . I did a little test recently and found the ' bottom of the barrel " both BK and M now have [ at least in this area ] terrible coffee involving 'toxic encephalopathy ' things . Sorry to be so technical !
    So it's back to my local diner !
    anybody know where the roasters get their training ?

    Was that the coffee or the water though?

    In this area we only have Catskill Mtn Well Water.
    But to compare soft vs hard water vs coffee vs tea one works best with coffee the other best with tea.
    It's hard to hide toxic encephalopathy as it goes directly into the brain - fast "

    I'm waiting on something else to come in before shipping. Hopefully I will be able to get it there before Christmas, but it's going to be a couple days yet.

    You still have a few days before it starts to get a little close.

    Got my package from Y'shua today! 3 kinds of unroasted beans and one bag of Guatemala that is roasted (which smells fantastic). There was also a custom fixed blade and a burlap coffee sack.

    I thought it was a bit strange at first when I couldn't smell anything before opening the package.:D I wasn't expecting unroasted beans, but it's a good idea. Thanks!

    Green beans are a good idea for us home roasters! :) :thumbsup: :cool:

    You'll have to tell me what you think of the guat, and that Boji roasts really well as light roast, or medium.

    The curiosity and the smell of coffee beans got to me. I had to open it! And what a wonderful Secret Santa gift! Knives of all varieties and delicious coffee. I wasted no time ripping open the Iron Bean. Thanks John!
