Whale dreck was a substance they had leftover and no use for when they cooked down whales after whaling. I just bought a bag of "Kona Blend" Coffee by "High Mountain Kona" or some such brand and brewed a cup straightaway. It was absolutely terrible, hence my new term "coffee dreck".
The girl at the counter even raved to me about how she loved this brand...
I don't know how many of you drink coffee but I like it when I'm at home. I don't drink it anywhere else, cos I don't like it anywhere else. So far I only like Kona Blend by Cameron's Coffee (it has the red heraldic lion/shield on the bag of beans). Other coffees I've tried gag me, tasting rather like a cigarette butt is floating in the cup. My dad drinks Folgers, he gave me a cup of that and I dumped it out when he wasn't looking. I've noticed most coffee beans are black when ground up and have that putrid tobbacco taste but when I grind up Cameron's it's brown and has a really nice smooth flavor (almost a cocoa like aftertaste) even though it's black when brewed and I use it at 2x.
Just curious if anyone else is this picky about coffee or if it's just me... I keep looking for other "good brands" but can't find anything that doesn't taste nasty.
What kind/brand coffee do you like?
Have you ever had pure Kona coffee instead of the Kona Blends ? It's $20 a lb plus postage but if it's better/smoother than even Cameron's I'd like to try it.
Anyone try the "Civet Cat Coffee"?
