    So, I enjoy good coffee (and no nespresso, lavazza and vittoria do not fit into this category) and regularly hunt around for new beans from various roasters.

    I am guessing there are others here into good coffee, so figured be a good place to share what we are currently grinding and pouring.

    I will start with my long time favourite, the Jackson from Adore Coffee.

    JACKSON - Aromatic, Caramel & Chocolate

    The coffee from coffee works in Mareeba QLD is my current favourite. I just order it online and they express post it with sample pack of different blend.

    I get my beans from Forsyths and prepare it here and can get it here - @EN710 no need for an expensive machine, made the way millions of Europeans make it every day

    @EN710 - Very little to master.

    If you have an electric stove you turn it off when the coffee starts coming up. With gas when it stops perculating/top is full. Otherwise it burns.

    Hands down best coffee from a cafe is Little Cove Coffee at Noosa.
    The Breville Dual Boiler makes a great coffee at home. We use Campos beans for our home brew.

    Witham's Super Mocha is my favourite so far, always trying new ones but have always circled back to this. Stoked to nab the last bag from their Northside Produce Market stall :) Great rounded and slightly chocolatey taste.

    Next one to try is Jasper's Blend #10 which I picked up at Prahran Market when I was down in Melb last last weekend. Haven't dialed in the grind just yet but first impressions are good, esp the depth of flavour - probably the best lingering aftertaste of all the beans I've tried.

    Saw the BES980 "The Oracle" at Bing Lee, very impressive unit and glowing reviews on ProductReview.... not sure if it's too automatic for my tastes though (automatic grinding, tamping and steaming)

    They had the dual boiler on sale without smart grinder a couple of months ago for $699. Well worth grabbing that next sale, its $1500 with grinder normally, $800 saving pays for a good second hand mini mazzer etc

    Nice thread, one of my favourite subjects...

    I feel bad, especially with my Italian background... I am still on nespresso pods, what can I say.. its convenient, no cleaning, does not come close to the real thing.

    Nespresso gives you convenience, consistency and speed. I had a CitiZ&milk and tried all the different flavours (even that stupidly expensive $3/capsule one, silver box can't remember name) but didn't really enjoy it that much.

    Upgraded to a Lelit PL042EMI combi (built-in grinder) and haven't looked back. I don't like how slow it is for milk drinks (single boiler) and how noisy it is (vibratory pump) but the challenge is fun and I get to practise latte art :) Great taste from an unlimited selection of beans.

    Gonna have to keep an eye on Bing Lee sales, thanks for the tip @DaveM.

    I've had the machines. They have to be cleaned, and eventually break down, requiring expensive repairs.

    I much prefer having a good grinder- one which does a consistent quantity and grind. My Breville costs about $300 now, I've had it running flawlessly for years. It does everything from an extremely coarse grind to a fine powder.

    The coffee I will sometimes do Middle Eastern style, in a saucepan on the stove, sometimes with small stick of cinnamon- crunchy coffee. Or more often I use the aeropress. Choice doesn't like it- it doesn't give any crema- but I like that it makes a quite reasonable cup of coffee, quickly, and it's quick and easy to clean up. Less cleaning overall than a fully automatic machine.

    Does anyone else here roast their own beans? I have an iCoffee bean roaster which, silly name aside, produced excellent results for small batches, meaning I always had the most freshly-roasted beans on hand.

    I'll stop photobombing this thread now.
