Help me understand you.
You drink instant 'coffee' and you are looking to find WHAT?

Real coffee tastes like real coffee. Instant is for yeshiva coffee rooms.
Buy a real coffee maker and you'll get real coffee.
Steer clear of Keurig and Starbucks.
Keurig is convenient, but the quality of the coffee is not great. (and yes some are better than others)
Starbucks is a very lucrative scam, IMHO.
I personally use a french press and it makes pretty much the best coffee I've ever tasted. (Bested only by The French Press in Lakewood. They make GREAT coffee.)

Are you one of those that understands and tastes coffee like a some do to wine?
When I was in French press I was wondering how many guys are really really into coffee. You see many many people into wine, but haven't met any that can talk about coffee like a wine connoisseur.

If u want te best, buy a grinder and grind cofee beans everyday. After you have ur freshly grounded coffee, throw it in ur french press, add hot water. Then, wait 2-4 min depending on how heavy u want ur coffee and wala. P.s. These days i use kurig every morning for convenience

You can also roast your own beans for ultimate freshness. It's a lot easier than it sounds. All you need a popcorn popper and a timer.

It depends on what you are looking for.  You obviously have very gourmet taste buds.  I agree with you that The French Press is top-notch and has very gourmet-ish coffee.  But I have been there quite a few times, and cannot find a coffee that my taste buds enjoy.  Granted, it is better than instant, but from my non-gourmet POV, I prefer the Keurig.  A real coffee gourmet would probably turn his nose up at my choice, but it is all a matter of preference.

2 problems with being a coffee snob.

#1 shabbat in the winter, but i dont see why you cant use grinds in a mechanism that would avoid borer ? I just generally cook coffee before shabbat, put it in a pitcher in fridge and drink it cold.
#2 shabbat traveling, I used to do #1 but put coffee in travel mug,  but after I passed 25 I got lazy..

Lets talk coffee, coffee actually is a lot like wine,  if you like sweet wine you're nuts, if you like sweet coffee its a a cause for concern, however I drink my coffee sweet using natural brown turbiando or similar sugar's, I brew my coffee very strong to a crispy not bitter flavor, at this time I use a capresso grinder and a french press, both have been with me for 5 year l'orech yamim v'shanim tovos although i'm looking to step up my game.

I used a peculator but it was too much of a hassle / time consuming and I cant actually do ANYTHING coherent before coffee, I cant even say brachos right often repeating paragraph's in a mumbled daze.

French press dudes and dudetes is awesome, there are other great ways to brew and enjoy coffee, but unlike wine I have no time or patience in the morning.

I have given serious consideration to swapping my beverage intake with wine being consumed in the morning and coffee in the evening.. i'll let you know how that goes

I agree with you to a certain extent, I am a huge Starbucks guy, only because I find that beside roasting your own beans, there is really not much out there that is better, you seem to have found something. I would love to hear.
as far as k cups go, the only coffee worth getting is barista prima (unless there's something out there that I never heard of)
using a French press to make your coffee dosnt mean that you are using high quality beans.
 I have never gotten coffee at the French press, and therefore can not comment on that quality

Not great but infinitely better than instant, which I simply cannot get down.  For shabbos I make do with this (I'm not a posek but no reason these should differ from tea bags).

How much grinds and water etc? Can you give us instructions?
I usually do 1 part coffee to 2 parts water.
These are good instructions.

I did. You obviously have no idea what I'm talking about.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_brew (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_brew)

I know every form of coffee, in miami we have panther coffee, you can get i dunno 12 hour cold brew.

Any ways, b'kitzur, I do 1 of 2 things, if I  brewd a full french press pot but only used half, on a winter shabbat i just pour the rest in a pitcher and put in fridge. If a new shebang is needed, i repeat daily coffee brew but put piticher in freezer 5 min then fridge

Look, we are generally looking at a miami winter of 75 degrees by the time I have my coffee at 11am (friends of chabad shabbas mevorchim running late)

im looking to address #1 3 day YT, a cold brew, any brew gets stale, #2 a cold shabbat where you want HOT coffee.

BTW, this is also another PITA if you are, like myself, a raw brown sugar user

He uses a weaker ratio of coffee grinds as well. How much "essence" do you use to how much water?

You can dilute it with hot water to make it hot. I personally don't.

I was thinking of an airpot http://www.amazon.com/32125-0000-Liter-Lever-Action-Airpot-Stainless/dp/B000FAMSFK/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Would the coffee be stale after 12 hours though?

But 50% hot water will not quite make it hot. Using which measurements would you be able to get hot coffee from this on shabbos. During the week we can just microwave it etc.

This is from Chazzano Coffee in Michigan! They are Kosher certified, in my opinion they are ahead of the game then French Press in Lakewood. I have used the directions below, to make a cold brew concentrate. On Shabbos I add 4 parts hot water to 1 part concentrate.

You Too Can Brew Great Coffee


You Too Can Brew a
Fantastic Cup of Coffee
Follow these steps, to make a delicious cup of Chazzano® Coffee at home.

1. Use a Burr Grinder to grind your coffee at a coarse grind.

2. Using a standard scoop, scoop your freshly ground Chazzano Coffee.*

3. Pour water that is between 195° and 205° F into the press pot. Cover the pot with the plunger, but do not press down. If you are boiling water, wait about 30 seconds for the boiling water to drop a few degrees.

4. After 90 seconds, press down the plunger slowly and serve the freshest and most fragrant coffee that you have ever had.


*Note: If you are enjoying delicious Chazzano® Coffee iced, add an additional coffee scoop in the press.

I want you to enjoy your Chazzano® Coffee in any way that suits your taste, but before adding anything, try it black. Take some quick noisy sips.

Do you taste or smell something exquisite that you don’t usually associate with coffee?
Do you smell chamomile, or chocolate, or even tobacco?
Does it taste smooth, buttery, or sweet?
Did the taste change after it cooled down?
Would you enjoy this coffee at breakfast, lunch, or dinner? 
We would love to have your feedback. Fill out our Cupping Form online or come to Chazzano Coffee and fill one out in person—while enjoying a cup.


How to Cold Brew Iced Chazzano Coffee
With a large pitcher, place one cup of cold water in the bottom.
Place about a 1/2 lb. of fresh roasted coarsely ground Chazzano® Coffee  in the pitcher.
Pour 4 cups of cold water over the coffee in the pitcher.
Place the other ˝ lb. of coarsely ground coffee in the pitcher and pour 4 more cups of cold water and soak the grounds.
Leave the mixture in the pitcher for 12 hours or overnight, outside of the refrigerator.
After 12 hours, using a strainer or the strainer hole of the pitcher, pour the concentrated coffee in a large French press (Press Pot) and strain out the coffee grounds.
Pour the coffee concentrate in a closed pitcher and refrigerate.
For the perfect iced coffee use the following formula: 1 part coffee concentrate, 3 parts cold water over ice.
NOTE: If you use Chazzano’s Ethiopia Sidamo, you should expect a cold beverage with notes of chocolate and cherry. Try the Brazil Cold Brew for notes of butter, chocolate, and hazelnuts—like a marzipan beverage.

My best bet are the local beans from my grocer. Between $6.99-$8.99 a lb. And by far the best coffee around. Just would like an online option that I know is good for gifting etc.

Gonna check out craftcoffee. Thanks an613

Luna Roasters for one. Amazon or Sams Club/WM.
The French Press in Lakewood for another. They say they have online ordering too, though I've only ever bought in store.
Target carries Intelligentsia in store... you could order probably order online from Target or from Intelligentsia's website.

I have no idea if Fairway ships, but that's my go to place near work.


Gevalia used to be good but they changed their business model to go after high margin (i.e. k-cups and supermarket quality) instead of high quality. A shame.
