    Strong as in dark roast? High caffeine? You can make any coffee strong by increasing ratio of grounds to h20 and dark roasts often use cheaper grade beans because you canít taste the difference when theyíre burned! Highest caffeine coffee comes from robusta beans, again the cheaper alternative. Good coffee is naturally sweet, but most coffee drinkers just want the kick. Might as well drink Red Bull...

    I just purchased a bag of "kicking horse" coffee. I think it's supposed to be pretty strong. We'll see whenever I get around to using it

    Roast and then I grind them. At that point any brewer will work.Much cheaper and better than any coffee you can buy. Itís like fresh baked bread compared to store bought.

    Starbuck's Sumatra is my absolute favorite dark roast/robust tasting coffee. Recently I tried Peet's Major Dickason and it is really good as well - when I want a slightly different tasting coffee that is also "strong".

    Haven't tried any listed in the first post so can't comment on how those would compare...

    Cheers,
    Tim

    I think that chart underrates how strong Deathwish coffee actually is.

    They get you coming and going if you're not careful. These ceramic dripper makers, that basically hold the filter and grounds while you pour over hot water, try and sell you pour over kettles and scales to measure your water and grounds, special rigs to hold the dripper over the cup underneath, all sorts of bells and whistles. I just use a pot to boil the water, pour that into a pyrex measuring and pour over the dripper over a large cup.

    True, you can go minimalist. Weighing grounds and knowing how much water youíre using helps but so does trial and error. Grind is pretty important too but if youíre using preground, medium or med fine is ok.Youtube videos can be helpful and the ones by Hoffmann are my favorite but it can get as technical as flashlights!

    I can eyeball it with respect to water level, grounds spoonfuls. No big deal.

    Black. Haven't had any foo foo in my cup for years now (i.e. sugar, sweetener, cream).

    Looks like a marketing ploy. You donít burn good beans to super dark. You might be paying for packaging. There are no coffee beans grown in the USA. Try intelligentsia, sweetmarias, or better yet, find a local roaster.

    BRC is right up my alley. Just Black is great. Beyond Black cup was outstanding. I keep track of my caffeine half life so no problems with sleep lol.

    Looks like Rambo coffee. They probably sell macho soap to go with it. Anything to get your dollar. Also, darker roasts have LESS caffeine than lighter roasts.

    What can I say - I like supporting Veteran owned companies. I like dark roasts. And I also like my coffee black.
