    Re: The Coffee Hobby

    I think that comes from drip systems. The water is not hot enough for a good extraction, then after the swill sits on a burner for an hour, it is definately gut unfriendly. I couldnt drink it anymore either, so I switched over to more of a connesiours approach like Shawn (although not nearly as detailed). You make a one cup at a time, so its always fresh. The extraction is good, so the gut busting bitterness isnt present. The best thing is you dont end up drinking a whole pot of swill when one good cup will satisfy.

    Great question Flippy. I have a very sensitive stomach myself. I do much better with home roasted coffees. 99% of the US (yes Im making up that stat but I would say its close) drink stale coffee on a daily basis. That bitter acidic coffee is a product of sitting too long before it hits your coffee pot. After 1 week a bean starts to become stale and bitter. Home roasted coffee is light years better in taste. And my stomach has thanked me as well. Home roasted coffee is so good I never use sugar or cream.

    There are also some beans known for their low acidity. I would be happy to roast you some and mail em to you if you have a grinder and a coffee pot. That way you could find out if you can tolerate them. PM me some details if you are interested.

    Thanks for the offer. I don't have the equipment. But I do plan to try to find someone / somewhere that can make homemade coffee like this. I hope it works out. I never knew about this stuff.

    Do you have a model # for that? I drove to the local Wal-mart (70 miles) and they acted like they had never heard of a Mr. coffee that includes Mr. Radar.
