The right stuff!
The Arizona Republic reported today that coffee prices are at a 12 year high. Hopefully that means you are making your java at home and saving a few buckaroos.
I like Pajaro coffee from Trader Joe's (see picture). I get it whole bean and grind it once a week and then brew it espresso style.
Grinders are pretty cheap, Target has them for $20 and I use a Mr. Coffee espresso maker that came from WalMart, also cheap, $30.
If anyone out there wants an espresso lesson, just let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will give you an in-person tutorial. I promise, you won't blow yourself up. I was afraid the first few times, too.
