But what I really want to know (and perhaps others do as well) is about your screen name. Is that '3 eggs' as in over-easy on a plate? In which case it certainly fits in with the general breakfast theme. Or is it the more colloquial Spanish definition of huevos?
Yeah, I'm ashamed that I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to food. Although I'm not into taking pictures and calling it food porn. That's just weird.

My screen name is my alter-ego, born with the rare defect/enhancement known as tritesticularism. Very big sack.

I can hadle simple the maintenance on my bike, easy as making a cup of coffee. Anything requiring more mechanical aptitude, and it's off to the shop. That's more like roasting a fine Ethiopia Yirgacheffe.
Yeah, just yanking your chain a bit. I actually agree with you. While I do as much work on my bike as I can, my mechanical genius lies in knowing my limitations. I'll go as far as swap parts, regular maintenance, rebuild a clutch and the like. But, I go to the pros when I need suspension rebuilds and tuning and any kind of serious engine performance work.

I had to google "Ethiopia Yirgacheffe". Sounds interesting.

Because of this thread, I bought some "cheaper" esspresso coffee to test what the difference is. I got a brick of "caffe Mauro", and "Caffe Gioia" and a tin of "Compliments Trattoria Espresso" which is a grocery story chain brand. I usually grind the beans at the grocery store which costs about 2-3 times as much as these ones I'm testing.

This morning I'm trying the "Caffe Mauro". It tastes a little different but not much to me. I usually put about 1/2 teaspoon of suger in my double espresso. I think because I use suger, I'm not as sensitive to the taste of the different brands. I think from now on I'll stick to the cheaper stuff and save some money. Cheers for the thread.

If you don't have time to brew real coffee. The Best instant is......

Its all I drink when in a rush in the morning. Nearly as good as the real thing.

If you want the hair on the back of your neck to stand up, try Community Coffee. Cajun's love that stuff.

Community Coffee, local to me and great stuff. I don't get the blend with Chicory though, can't stand it but some folks love it. We usually get the "cafe special" that Mrs. Irish posted earlier. Great flavor but not too strong in a B&D drip that's 3 years old.

Another even more local brew we have is "River Road Coffee" and it is phenomenal, but I usually just save a few bucks on Community.

I have some espresso ground Cafe Bustelo that I use in my espresso machine, good flavors from it

I like A&E Coffee Roastery out of New Hampshire made with a French Press. They roast weekly and ship it all over the country. By the time you get it it is 2 days old and super fresh.
