Looks like Antipodean increased their price, it's now almost RM32 with GST. Time to look for other budget beans for cheapskates like me  brows.gif .

IKEA beans la. RM12.90 for 250gm.
I notice a balance of Arabica and Robusta in them but i dont know the origin.

Coffee beans are exempted from GST right?
Btw, how fast do you guys normally finish your 250g/500g/1Kg beans?

That's quite fast. My 500g can last me about 2 months.

Yes you are right... thumbup.gif

Most people don't do this, but simply by boiling freshly drawn water each time you want to make coffee makes a huge difference to the taste.
This machine can heat up the water from room temperature to the right temperature for a cup of coffee in 40sec.
The best coffee taste can be had when you use water that has not quite reached boiling point.

Learn to enjoy a cup of instant coffee and enjoy your daily lifestyle.

You have only one point which is water close to boiling temperature is most suited for coffee and i believe most if not all the members in here knows it already.
I think what we want to know is what makes the machine so special other than reheating the water just for instant coffee?

How i wish i could get an espresso but due to budget and space constraint, i can't.
Have to enjoy my French Press & Moka Pot for now. biggrin.gif

Heck, even in office i cant make coffee using fresh milk and have to resort using condensed milk because there's no fridge and the pantry's super far.

You MUST try Aeropress.... it is still my favourite method anywhere outside home. Super convenient, makes really really good coffee, easy to clean up, very forgiving in terms of technique, one of the cheapest .... At my wife's office, I can even brew at her cubicle (cleanup at the pantry of course); just that the two minutes on the Hario Skerton attracts some attention! That, and the wonderful aroma..... !!

For milk, try the packet UHT milk... full cream seems better than the "fresh" type, IMHO. No need to refrigerate, the small packet makes about 2 decent lattes.

I did consider an Aeropress before but i like my coffee with some "dirt" and residue in it. I feel im getting a bolder taste (without filter medium) and that's why i opted for both the Moka Pot and French Press.

How do you guys plan to roast the beans? I know of heating them until they caramelize till they pop in the frying pan but this will cause inconsistent color.
Btw, i just got my Brazilian coffee and im loving it!

Please share the brand of French Press so that we will *NOT* get it!

I thought all should be pretty much rust-proof; I think Bodum is, at any rate.....

Mine is some cheap China french press only blush.gif unlike you all who have much much deeper pockets..

According to The Star's ongoing report on the revised budget, Mr 2.6 billion announced "- 3. To reduce cost of living, Govt to liberalise APs for agricultural products including coffee beans and meats".

So what does "liberalise" mean? Why not just say "eliminate"? Does it just mean more cronies get APs?
*
Ah, i was just about to quote that too. I think what liberalized mean is that there will be more AP holders who can import these now?

I had a cup of Coffee Bean's house blend coffee and it was terrible. Not that im a snob but it was the most tasteless and watery cup of coffee i've ever got from a cafe.

Made some Liberica coffee just now. What an eye opener.
Nutty, super earthy, definitely full bodied and a medium finish. This is a good filler coffee but too punchy as it is, at least for me la.

So my gf bought me a entry level semi auto espresso machine and a grinder for my birthday cum christmas present.
I used the unit and i failed to make proper frothed milk (maybe coz it was full cream milk instead of fresh milk?

By the way, where can i get Vietnamese coffee/beans in KL at a reasonable price? I love their mocha-butter taste which is always present in the coffee.
