When I'm in a rush its Nescafe or something like that. Otherwise its coffee from a local artisan "Carls Roastery" he's got a Guatemala bean that is awesome. Its actually a filter / cappuccino bean but I use it for espresso. I make it in a stove top 2 cup espresso kettle. And use a Bodum grinder on a fine setting. Then it's poured in a Star Wars espresso cup and enjoyed slowly.

Nice coffees gents.

Only had my first cup this morning just now (luckily here at work they have quite a good filter coffee). Been looking forward to it, and must say that it is going down smoothly...
