    Coffee!! I really seriously very, very much want some French Press Coffee with warmed half & half & Demara Sugar!!
    Like RIGHT NOW!!

    There's no kitchen or stovetop, or a microwave down here in the basement to do any cooking......not that I really would want to cook down here in The Spider Dungeon!! I have a shower & toilet and a kitchen sink....just no kitchen!! So, I have no Earthly idea how I would actually prepare said coffee.....I'd need a tea kettle for water....some way to make a fire under it......I have an ice chest down here to put some ice & Pepsi in, so I could keep some 1/2 & 1/2 in there!

    Of course I'd still need to purchase a French Press pot and some nice Organically Grown freshly ground coffee beans....oh! a coffee grinder too!!

    WOW!! I'd need a LOT just to make a simple pot of coffee!!!!

    Guess it's a ride on the bike down to the coffee stand!! BUMMER!!!

    Could use a fucking Red Eye my self right now....

    If you got to buy everything anyway, check the camping section. Lots of good gas mini-stoves out there to make little pots of anything. Easy to do inside or out (though I would do it outside).

    Enjoy whatever coffee you find!

    I am an avid coffee drinker, but I drink my coffee cold, old, and black. I was able to try a french press when I visited B.C and it was awesome. The tangible pleasure you get from slowly pushing down the plunger beats watching and waiting to for the coffee pot to brew anyday. Happy coffee hunting.

    What a disappointment!!!

    I got NO coffee this morning! Bummer!

    All I got was a Pepsi & a cup of ice at the nearby gas station/mini mart!!

    Make a run to a camping store and get a snall sterno stove...or if you have electricity, a plug-in electric two-burner coil. Coffee is just a few bucks away. If you can afford an electric skillet, you can not only boil water in it, but cook all kinds of stuff! Or a microwave.....

    The Goodwill up here has a few french presses in stock for something like 5 or 6 dollars. They look a little cheapie and they're made of plastic but I bet it would work a few times. BTW where do I get one of those metal coffee filters I see in the videos?

    Which ones? The gold cone shaped ones? Target, wallyworld, kmart, those are fairly common nowadays.

    There's a coffe video???

    Nah, the chamber where you get the finished coffee is clear and it looks like plastic. The top with the Plunger is white and made of plastic. Like I said I'm not sure how well they would work or how long they would last.

    No the videos of people making hash. I want one of those filter things so I can do it, it's been years since I've had hash and as I recal it's pretty good.

    BTW Geo I added you on Myspace.

    I dug out my mom's old Rival electric skillet, that old thing still rocks!! I've McGuyvered a 'double boiler' using a metal mixing bowl, fill up the skillet w/water...voila!! Hot tea or coffee water!! I've also been boiling water for pasta.....drain it & make the sauce!! One dish meals I can do!! Been making some tasty pasta sauces with fresh tomatoes & basil, handmade cheese & sausages from the local farmer's market! Yummy!

    Still need to find a press pot for coffee though!!

    And shoes!! I need to shop for work shoes, chef clogs, comfy Berkie's or Crocs! My feet are killing me, standing the entire 8+ hours!!

    Pay day today!! Coffee makin' supplies are on my list of 'splurges'!!

    A press pot is coming out of my food budget! I'll eat at work for free & rather have a lovely pot of coffee in the morning in exchange for a couple of dinners at home!
