    I am sure. CO & MN have a ton in common.

    Try an Aeropress. Add a good grinder and it is the best budget setup. Peruse craigslist for Mazzer, Macap and the like. Once you have the grinder the coffee machine is easier.

    It is what I bought for my parents.

    The problem is the grinder. Used you can probably get buy with $200 for a grinder and $400-600 for a machine. Rancilio Silvia with PID mod is the budget machine (from when I shopped). Add a Macap Stepless and you will have an AWESOME setup.

    but as we know my stomach asks for different shit than yours

    Coffee here isn't bitter. Every single person that has had one here that normally takes sugar in a coffee to deal with that says they don't need it.

    It gets me harder than espresso. Something more gentle about it in every way. Sure way to get me to take a dumb is a monster size strong french press.

    Nice. I don't see green beans on their site though Coffee beans are great from about 3-12 days after roasting. First couple and they haven't outgassed enough and after 12 they lose the capability to release their oils nicely. In the metro here there are at least 60 shops that sell beans roasted that day or close. Makes a HUGE difference. Bigger than going from a good bean to a bad bean.

    MORE practice

    So yes, I am a nut in everything I do.

    The boiling water on tap at all times of the day is nice too. I also use the steam wand for spot cleaning clothes in particular dry clean only clothes.

    16g per shot or 28 cappuccinos per pound. Shit is $20/lb though so I buy them green for $4/lb. https://www.sweetmarias.com/product/sweet-marias-espresso-monkey-blend-2653 Need a behmor roaster then too https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PKEZ3M6/ref=asc_df_B00PKEZ3M65223954/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=394997&creativeASIN=B00PKEZ3M6&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167144008776&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=3051644972899411714&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9019596&hvtargid=pla-303474368844 My payoff happened fast. I NEVER go to a coffee shop and buy anything there as they all suck in comparison. Perfect caps, latte's, americano's, espresso, breve, hot chocolate, mocha, all in less than 2 minutes.

    Social drink too, I can't pull a single. Doubles easy.
  15. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Can't have 10 cups a day though. 16grams of beans per double.
