7. Buy Krups Coffee/Espresso-maker

8. Brew
9. Hoist the Coffee Burgee

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Is it permissible to use the VHF to call in your order?

Will it be a "sail-thru"? Would one have to anchor anew every time the next person was up to get their order?

Yes...this is a 5 year old thread...but COFFEE NEVER DIES.

I am the guilty one who restarted this thread.

Sure enough, after posting the comment, I noticed Sailingdogs list of rules.

Sort of like "red right return" or handicapped parking spaces....,
they are just a suggestion.

Spinning vs Burr Grinders

Not only do the spinners burn the poor little grindings, the grindings are of inconsistant size. Generally small bits are a little more bitter, and large ones more mellow. If you want to control the size and thus the mellowness, youhave to use a burr grinder. My mate found me a perfect hand one at an antique store.

camaraderie is a jewel in the rough camaraderie is a jewel in the rough camaraderie is a jewel in the rough
Tassimo is for girlie men and Euros or at least Portagees! This is America!!
I want my 20 ounces of (dare I say it?) FRENCH roast and not some puny little tasse of tassimo. If tassimo is going to succeed here it needs to pump up and super-size me!!

I'm glad the thread got bumped. I'l be delivering my boat north in the spring, and I've been thinking about coffee. I seem to remember using a small aluminum percolator on my prior (solo) cruises. Unless the crew complains, I'll use a larger corning one for this trip.
I drink tea these days.

Coffee beans store better than ground coffee and so I used to have a little hand coffee grinder that worked very well. (For the short stuff I do these days I just grind the beans at home.)

Some of the worlds best coffee houses are in Austria, considering my wife is from there I consider her an expert on the topic of coffee Two votes for the stove top espresso maker!!! We grind the beans with a 120V coffee/spice grinder. Yummy. Italian Stove Top Espresso Makers
