Question: I just bought a good bean grinder that allows me to select the the coarseness. Do I need to also buy a pour through, or will I get the same results by using my freshly ground bean and my Kuerig adapter for fresh ground coffee?
I tend to drink espresso so I don't own a pour over, however I HATE Keurig coffee. If I want regular coffee I'd rather use my drip coffee maker, so my guess would be a pour over or even a french press would give better results than the Keurig. However a pour over or french press are cheap so just try it and see how you like it.

As for coffee I have been trying various espresso blends from peets. I like the Espresso Forte, but I think I like the Garuda even more. I have tried some other "fancy" brands that honestly just taste horrible to me. Have some of their Italian Blend coming in soon to try that. I get the whole beans, but they will grind it to your liking also.

Thanks. I'm going to buy a pour over and try it myself. Great advice.

My preferred coffee is Julius Meinl with Delonghi coffee maker, after long time testing all kind of brands, narrowed my family choice to Jubilaum and Amaranto.

Actually bough some Lavazza Super Crema from Amazon because we had gone through all our Peets and the new batch wont be here until next week so we were all out. Anyways I always hear how great the Lavazza Super Crema is and Amazon would deliver it next day so I decided to try it.

It's not bad, its not great. I still prefer Peets over it, but I would keep some on hand as backup like right now that we are out of Peets. Also cheaper than Peets.

Next time try Lavazza Gold Selection. I think it is better than Super Crema.
