Late to the game, however I am curious...

In my travels, I typically would have coffee as the locals, be it beans that were dried on a road and a path swept for a vehicle to pass, then swept back out on the road (cafe de calcetines,anyone?), or coffee in whatever big city and many ways in between...

As example, here in the states, in New Orleans and only New Orleans, I will drink chicory coffee. That is probably the only flavored coffee that I would drink, and again only in Nawlins... I don't do ANY flavored creamer/whitener...

Milk, cream, evaporated milk, powered whitener,sugar, black, strong, weak...

I do quite a bit of 'espresso', in the afternoon, often changing brand, Pilon, Bustello are big and popular, no problem with small, lesser known brands. Currently 'La Llave"...
I have an assortment of cafeteras and know how to make a lot of foam... Those that know, know what I am saying [emoticon]

For what ever reason (ok, lazy and like to have a cup ready when I awake...) I always have Maxwell House around, only fresh brewed, it's nasty old or reheated! Folgers seems to last longer, retaining it's taste... In it, Carnation Evaporated milk. I buy it by the case.

Tried many other brands, too much to type.

So, my question and please answer and be honest;

What coffee do you drink that can be reheated and retain the taste?

In my opinion, reheated coffee is like coffee that has been ground too fine,... very bitter, quite nasty...


My honest answer as a coffee lover: I would not drink reheated coffee.
I never have and never will

I agree with Guy. I make just enough coffee for 1 cup and drink it in one sitting with breakfast. That's it for the day. I drink green tea at times during the day, sweetened with honey ( gotta be honey, not sugar).

500MG magnesium sulfate nothing less to start. I was found to have medical center labs of magnesium so low they wanted to IV me and write an Rx. Electrolyte balance plays a key role in neural stimulation. I have not had an Afib event since 2002 but one in 2011 when my magnesium was misplaced in Mexico.


Thanks for the info, MexicoWanderer

To have absolutely the perfect cup of coffee it's vital to consume ground right then beans that have rested 2 days after being double-checked roasted. Superb estate grown beans no more than a few months old that have been dried and stored properly so as to avoid wet mold. After laying out to allow oils to be reabsorbed for 2 days after roasting a low speed burr grinder should be used to achieve the known perfect grind. Distilled water is my preference because it has no minerals influence.

To retain 100% of this extravagant overkill superb taste takes a heavy steel tank and an an air conditioner vacuum pump. Pump down to perfect vacuum. Other than having proven this insane degree of perfection I roast green beans shipped from the Sunocoso mountains of Chiapas at insane cost and roast in a wood fired Adobe oven when the fit overtakes me. I know what a perfect cup of coffee tastes like. But now far from home I am prepared to arise from bed, go to the kitchen, pour a cup of coffee brewed last night and stick it in the nuker for 2 minutes. It may be defective as heck but it beats Nescafé.

I guess we're not "coffee snobs" enough to be very fussy. Folgers Half-Caff has been our go to blend for years. We brew a 12-cup pot in our basic Mr Coffee drip machine and store it in an insulated Air-pot carafe. If it's too cool when we dispense it, in the microwave the cup goes. Some years back a friend made a cup of his custom Kona blend that he had flown in from Hawaii for me telling me it would spoil me for anything else. I could hardly drink it... [emoticon]
