Re: Coffee aficionados ...

I certainly appreciate the science involved, balancing all the variables to get this or that flavor result. But I wonder if coffee is just getting too darn precious when I walk into a coffee shop and the menu board does not seem to have anything like "basic cup of coffee" -- French press, pour-over, Americano, flannel, plus whatever method was in the trade mags last week are the only options -- and more often than not I just want a bleedin' red eye (coffee + espresso shot) and don't particularly care how it is made as long as it works and doesn't taste like kerosene. I guess it gives the proprietors license to charge meal prices for a beverage, and if there's enough customer base for this business model to survive long-term more power to 'em but I'll fuel up elsewhere.
