So I have ordered from Stocking Mill Coffee Roasters 3 times now.

My most recent order Dec 7 th has gone Un touched.

I emailed last night and first thing this AM I got a text saying it had shipped. Lmao.

This is the 2nd time this has happened. Exact same thing.

Anyone else order from them?

I am a firm believer in several of their blends

Traceroute good homebrew coffee
I read this really fast and thought you were calling Tecate a homebrew coffee.

Anyway, my wife replaced my Mr. Coffee from the 80s with a Keurig, and I hate it. Maybe I'm not getting the right k-cups but even the Dunkin k-cups don't taste nearly as good as when I was tossing Dunkin grounds in the ol' percolator. Despite my hate for the new taste, I've noticed that I use the new machine more than the old one due to saving 15 minutes every morning. 1st world struggles. :cry:

Nespresso here and love it.

Same. The capsules are annoyingly expensive (happy we can recycle them) and I find most of their Vertuo coffee flavors too bitter, but we get enough rotation out of the 3-4 blends we like to keep it fresh.

My wife and I mainly use our Ninja coffee maker. It does all kinds of stuff. Rich, classic, cold, specialty, and various sizes. We also have a French press, drip, and espresso coffee makers. We also currently have a bunch of different kinds of coffee from folgers 1850, to Starbucks' holiday blend, to various other coffees.

With the Ninja, I have found thoroughly washing all components after each use, along with running a cleaning agent through the coffee maker on a monthly basis, helps to ensure a consistent flavor pot after pot.

At first we rarely cleaned it and the coffee tasted like sludge.

I agree. But there's also a noticeable difference when you make coffee via one method than another. You can use the same blend, use the drip method, then also use a coffee maker and it'll have a different taste. Even the French press has a different taste. I used to love trying different methods and blends, but then just started using the Ninja more often.

I have been wanting an espresso machine ever since I was in my early 20s and just could never swallow the price tag associated with them. Fast forward a decade and a half and now I feel its a must have. The DeLonghi models have been on my radar for a little while now. Anyone have an espresso machine?

When my wife and I got married back in 2013, I ended up putting an espresso machine on our wedding registry. I can't remember the brand, but it was definitely worth it. I made different kinds of drinks for quite some time (mochas, cappacinos, lattes, ect). Took time to make and clean, but the quality of the drink was worth it. I just ended up stop using it after we moved into our new house and for some reason stopped using it.
