Favorite coffee beans/ beans recommended for beginner coffee drinkers? Or things to recommend in general? I’m a noob.

Hi! I am new-ish to drinking coffee. My entire life I was told never to drink it because of some weird religious rules, (and I’ve finally broken away from that, thank goodness. I bet most of you know which religion it is, lol) so now I am 24 and have no idea where to start when brewing at home. I want to be able to save money, and not have to go to a coffee shop almost every day.

Coffee shops are how I used to get my coffee for the past year, but my husband and I finally bought an affordable, high-tech coffee maker (after doing much research)! It’s the Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System. This thing is incredible and can do so much! Classic, Rich, Over Ice, Cold Brew, and various Specialty options! I am still figuring out how to grind coffee beans in a way that pairs well for the machine’s different brewing options. I’ve been sticking to medium-coarse grinding. I have made some GOOD coffee, but not GREAT. It doesn’t seem to be as strong or flavorful compared to when I go to a coffee shop. Maybe it’s because I’m brewing for myself for the first time and am barely learning, or maybe because I’m not using the best beans, or maybe I’m just not grinding enough beans. Obviously, there is going to be trial and error for a noob like me.

I have read so many (at least 50) reviews on this coffee maker before purchasing it, and I have read reviews for many other coffee makers for that matter, and compared ratings before a final decision was made. It can also brew tea in various ways, which is another reason I bought it. Anyway, everyone raves about the coffee maker that I’ve bought, and says their coffee tastes better than any Starbucks ever has, how rich and flavorful it is, etc... I feel like I’m doing something wrong. Pro coffee brewers and drinkers alike, lend me your knowledge.

I turned coffee beans into "chocolate".

Behold: these bars of "chocolate" have not a single gram of cocoa solids: I replaced the cocoa nib content with ground coffee beans, and it tastes absolutely incredible. Sound on to bear witness to the SNAP.

First I'll discuss the bar's attributes, briefly talk about the background, then tell you how I made it. I'll leave some additional notes at the end.

(If you're more the visual type, I made a video about the process. Just bear in mind that I have no cinematography experience, so it's not the sharpest production you'll see this week.)

SMELL: It smells like whole coffee beans. The scent has a roundness and smoothness to it.

TASTE: It tastes like, well, coffee. A strong coffee flavor that has a good balance between sweetness and bitterness: sorta akin to 75-80% dark chocolate, I'd wager. There's an initial hit of sweetness that becomes more mellow and bitter the longer you let it sit in your mouth, but not in an unpleasant fashion. I think the best description I can give would be "moka brew in solid form", given how the cocoa butter lends the coffee a full-bodied flavor and mouthfeel. (My roommate claimed it tasted like a "super nutty espresso", but I'm not educated enough on that topic to make any agreements.)

The difference in taste between bean types was quite apparent. I made a batch with a dark roast (unknown bean type), and a batch containing light roast Ethiopian beans. The dark roast I used has a bold, earthy, roasty taste. Contrasting this, the Ethiopian dark matter was tangy, fruity, with a slightly greater sweetness. I think I caught some strawberry notes in it, too.

TEXTURE: Exactly like chocolate. It melts easily in the mouth, a result of the cocoa butter's melting point. In a tempered state, it's smooth, glossy, and will break with a crisp snap.

BACKGROUND:

I'd made the decision to buy a melanger/wet grinder some time ago, with the intention of making coffee praline paste, given that food processors do a terrible job of adequately grinding coffee beans. It made me wonder if you could make chocolate using coffee beans, so I conducted a little research. There isn't much out there on the internet regarding this idea. I found that ChefSteps does have a recipe for so-called "dark matter", and there's [a blog that discusses Che

I know they have been here for a while, but what in the world is going on with the 'new' JJ Bean coffee lids?

It feels like some kind of medical experiment gone wrong, like I am waterboarding myself with hot coffee, as if my beverage is being delivered to me through some kind of insect proboscis....

Is this making sense to anyone? The lids are like a spout, but it goes so far into your mouth it removes almost any tongue control over what happens to the coffee when it gets inside your mouth. It just gets delivered straight to you throat. There is literally an evil insect monster in a David Lynch Prouction that I think of whenever I see them....

Help me understand, Vancouver!

7% Nitro Sweet Stout - With Coconut, Vanilla Beans, Lactose, Cacao Nibs, Cold Brewed Coffee and Graham Crackers

Heyo friends, I wanted to share with you all my house nitro sweet stout. It's always on tap, and is brewed roughly 2x per year since it's not really an every day drinker for us.

That doesn't mean it isn't delicious though. It also improves as it sits for months. Here's the link to the recipe and some pics throughout the brew process.

https://simplehomebrewbbq.com/2021/02/11/my-house-nitro-sweet-stout/

I always make minor changes and tweaks from batch to batch to try and improve and experiment, and I'm happy with the latest changes.

From the last batch, there were two main changes. One was backing off the amount of roast malt by a fair bit, and subbing in Pale Chocolate Malt in place of more chocolate malt, roasted barley, black malt. The other was dialing it back from 9% down to 7%... just because. Not that you can actually tell what percent this beer is by taste. Seriously.

I know not everyone has the luxury to serve beer on nitro - but it really makes this beer what it is. That and the coconut. Coconut stouts are some of my favorite beers. See: Anchorage Brewing The Sacrifice. Not that I've ever made anything like that... Just sayin'.

Other notes:

  • The vanilla I don't really get much of. I'm sure it rounds out the flavors a little, but it's not too detectable on my palette, which may or may not be a good thing.
  • The graham crackers were more of a fun what the heck type of addition. It doesn't do much other than add a couple gravity points. Plus it's fun seeing them on top of the mash at the end, looks like cake. See the last version's mash pic: https://simplehomebrewbbq.com/imperial-stout-mackys-nitro-coconut/
  • I can always advocate for more coconut, even though I never actually do it.
  • The coffee really hits me on the aroma end. Although that's been the case since brew day, the roast malts really give me a lot of coffee notes. Also, it wasn't a huge addition of coffee anyways.

Anyways, hope you like this one! Cheers, Nick

Accidentally bought whole bean coffee instead of grounds.... here we go

Logically I now have to buy a grinder and start drinking whole bean because it's fresher right? Might as well replace by 5 year old $20 Mr. Coffee machine while I'm at it right? I love coffee and want to enjoy it fully.

Willing to spend maybe $150 - $200 here, what advice do you all have for me?

Should I buy a fancy $200 machine with a grinder built in?

Do I have to french press/drip?

Can I get a really nice machine and grinder set for less?

Edit: Thank you all so much for your responses, recommendations, tips, etc. There are way too many comments to respond to all of them, but I did read every single one and will definitely update with what I end up buying after I do some research!

Edit 2: Wanted to update everyone and let you all know after a lot of thought and research, I went with the Keurig!

Edit 3: Just kidding, ordered a Bonavita 1901ts and a Baratza Encore burr grinder last night, along with a small digital scale for beans. Thanks to everyone who recommended various pour-over setups, I'll definitely be archiving this thread to refer back to down the line if I get more into it, ton of great info in this thread
