Tampering with Taste Buds for Better Coffee?
It's not so much as how it's prepared as how fresh the beans are. look into roasting your own if you are hardcore about great coffee. http://www.sweetmarias.com gives you a lot of info. Since it soudns like you will be getting the coffee soon, you should know this, *percolators ruin coffee*. never use them. drip is ok with good coffee. use a french press for the best of the best coffee (i prefer espresso, but that is out of the realm of this conversation). so yeah, you can read stuff on http://www.coffeekid.com for more on how to get really good coffee. enjoy!!
