So, Coffee is my preferred drug of choice for the gig. Anyone else? You may not be able to afford boutique bass gear, but almost anyone can afford boutique coffee. Of course, you CAN drink Maxwell House or something for the big buzz, but I've gotten so I like the Boutique beans the most. At one time, I used to buy from the Coffee Connection in Boston. They were OUTSTANDING. They had all the varietals, and would roast the day they shipped. However, they were so good, that Starbucks, in its rise to prominence, bought them out and eliminated the business. Or, that's the way I heard it. More recently, I found this outfit: http://www.majikcoffee.com/ in RI, that is expensive, but delivers excellent beans. Do any of you thumpers have other good sources for the enlightening fruit? Another thing is how the coffee is brewed. I've gone to the French Press almost exclusively, which seems to wring the most taste out of the grounds. Anyone have any better ways to brew?
