How do you make coffee at home?

For this Sunday morning, let me confess: though I take coffee seriously, with my burr grinder feeding my La Pavoni lever espresso, Frieling French press, and everyday drip brewer depending on the quantity and quality we want, when I wake up I like microwaved day-old coffee that's been sitting in the drip carafe for the last twenty hours, less the dregs at the very bottom.

If freshly brewed coffee has many of the attributes I like in a syrah, reused old coffee has those of a merlot, with softer flavor and a more gentle mouthfeel.

Love the hipster flavor wheel & terms like "turpeny" which don't exist elsewhere on the Net or in any dictionary I can find. Almost makes me want to take up coffee again. :lol:

i wonder if it's supposed be turpentiny or something like that since it seems related to piney. much to my own shame, i prettuy much just drink coffee, i don't really "taste" it

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Yeah, I figgered it was shorthand for that. Just struck me as funny.

I've been off coffee way too long to be very discerning about it.

i only started drinking coffee when i was living in the uk because those psychos put milk in tea and i cannot abide that. but their lovely double cream made coffee okay for me

I'd guess its a typo and it is supposed to be terpene-y - but i think the real term is terpenic. At least that's what my wife says - who does that sort of stuff for a living.

But yeah, its basically turpentine like.
Why not mayo?
