    Coffee experts.... do you have coffee recipes?

    A long time ago, during my travels in Europe and the Middle East, I was fortunate enough to experience coffee the way it was meant to be. Served in a demitasse cup (very small) it was thick enough to practically stand a spoon up... and strong enough to peel paint, with an after taste that stuck with me for what seemed like days.... I LOVED that stuff.

    But I haven't been able to find anyone or any particular product to make it with over here.

    I have an espresso machine, but I don't think that helps.

    So... what's the secret? What do I need... and are their any preferences for brand names?

    I'm hooked now.

    I've made a cup for two mornings in a row.

    Then I switch to ordinary drip brew to calm down.

    any cold coffee lovers? to me the mere thought of a cold coffee was just disgusting..until that one day, when i dared to be so bold and tried an iced mocha chill with whipcream.. ahhh starbucks, the only place you will pay $4.00 for a cup of coffee, and say it was worth it.:D

    I use a Krups 10 cup with a built in grinder and one of those permanant, gold screen filters. French Roast is my coffee of choice!
