I've been drinking coffee for years, pretty much started off drinking various instant types, then Costa or Starbucks started selling little tins of microground whole bean coffee in Tesco which was a whole load better tasting than normal instant. Then came Kenco Milicano which was a load cheaper than the microground coffee and still much better tasting them normal instant, I'm guessing it was really popular as recently I cant seem to find the little 50 serving tins of microground coffee. Nescafé Azera is another nice instant and a lot stronger tasting then Milicano. If I happen to be near a Costa express I often cant resist a proper coffee. Earlier in the year I received a Hario TCA-3 coffee syphon as a gift, its a real funky looking bit of kit, and with some practice it also makes a really nice brew. Weekend breakfast coffee has become a part of my weekend ritual, there really is nothing like the smell of freshly ground coffee beans, and the only thing better than the smell is the taste. I've tried several types of bean and the ones so far for me are Guatemalan, which are strong but with plenty of flavour too. As its a bit of a process to use the syphon for faster brews I also have use drip filters, a whole lot less faffing and really easy to clean up after!
