Now Brewing

Deans Beans Oromia Blend. Fine stuff. “The best Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, Sidamo and Jimma make for a smooth, strong and floral roast.” OK, now a question:
I was having coffee the other day with a friend, Mindy Caliguire, and she commented that she and Jeff go through a pound of coffee per week. I think our coffee lasts about 2 weeks, maybe more. How long does a bag of coffee last for you?
Perhaps a word of clarification: Kris has coffee on the way to work and at work, but not at home except on weekends. I drink 2-3 coffees per day at home, and after supper we have a cup of tea (Tetley).

Scot, my wife and I go through about a pound of coffee a week also. We probably drink about 5 cups a piece between about 6am and 10am. We also make our coffee pretty strong, which takes more coffee. I found some pretty good coffee while on vacation from a local coffee shop. Check out Larry’s Beans http://www.larrysbeans.com We had the “Frank Sumatra,” which was really good. It is Fair Trade and Organic.

We go through a pound every two weeks, I think. We have three coffee drinkers, but we rarely drink more than one cup a day at home. In winter I switch to decaf or drink hot tea. Larry’s Beans are good. We have a local outlet, and I like that they are all fair trade. However, we have a local company who roasts their beans right in front of you at the store just 5 minutes from me. You can’t get fresher than that!

Scot,
My wife and I will usually try to find the larger containers so that it takes longer. But on average, we’ll go through a pound in about a week or week and a half. (The larger containers will kick us up to two weeks–maybe).
Jenn and I will each have a cup in the morning before she leaves for work, then she’ll fill her travel-mug, and then I finish off the carafe, which is about another mug’s worth. Every now and then, I’ll crank up another half-pot if I’m having trouble concentrating on a given project.

Scot (and anyone else),
Have you tried IKEA’s coffee? If so, what are your thoughts?
PS: I tried posting this question earlier; so if this is a repeat, please forgive me.

Scot says “I drink 2-3 coffees per day at home, and after supper we have a cup of tea.”
I’ve wondered how you maintain such prolific blogging, write books, travel the world, and teach full time.
Caffeine!

For us, it will usually last for a year or longer! But ask us about tea or the Rooibos Oregon Chai, completely different story… :)

wellll….as for me, i drank coffee for awhile. and then that was all i did for awhile, not much food. then after having anxiety and depression…i quit. bam, no more coffee for me. so a bag would probably last me my whole life! refined sugar is out too…just fruit. pretty sad, huh?! well, get over it and enjoy your coffee…i sure love the smell of it though..that and bacon. as for my favorite drink, water. can’t beat it!

About 1lb in two weeks – my wife has an occasional cup and I’ll have 2-3 8oz mugs a day on average. I’m using the aeropress for my cups and it definitely needs the two+ tablespoons/cup ratio. Good coffee though…

I drink about three cups in the morning. My cat does not drink coffee, but she is known to navigate her way to my Diet Coke.

Scot, et al,
I go thru a pound every two weeks. I have 2-3 cups a day at work. A cup at home every other day. My wife has a cup once a week.
I love Boca Java but its fairly pricey compared to other whole beans, so I don’t drink it that regularly. I often get the store brands of custom measured whole beans.

I’m the lone coffee drinker in my house so it usually depends on how many times we have friends over. On average I’d say usually a couple of weeks for me to go through pound.
My coffee of choice here in Ireland has been Bewley’s for a long time. The tea drinking is a different matter altogther. We quickly learned why the Irish bring their own tea with them when they travel!

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
