Yesterday as I was reaching for the coffee concentrate out of the fridge, I realized that I haven't really talked much about our coffee since I wrote this post in 2008.
This summer it will have been three years since I wrote that post. Although I stop drinking coffee from time to time when I have fallen ill or I am trying to break up my relationship with half-n-half to this day we are still drinking this amazing alternative to regular coffee.
The thing that I have noticed most is that whenever I drink coffee at Starbucks whether it is a latte or a drip coffee it never taste as rich or as smooth. It certainly taste potent and the slap-in-the-face jolt of caffeine can be useful compared to the somewhat slow but steady dose of caffeine with cold press. But it just doesn't taste nice.
I consider this a healthy coffee because it contains considerably less acid than normal coffee.

When we last went on vacation and didnt' take our concentrate with us I could tell the difference in my body after a few days. I began to get small stomach aches and I became jittery. I couldn't wait to arrive home and go back to our home brew.
We still use our Filtron system but apparently there is a fancy new system on the market.
I always take a to-go cup of coffee every Friday and Saturday morning so that I don't have to buy any conventional coffee while I am thrifting. At this point I love avoiding anything but cold press coffee. I never expected to break my Coffee Shop Latte addiction on my own. Not only is cold press coffee healthier but in the long run it is truly the frugal choice.
I realize this sounds completely like a paid advertising post but it's not. It's just something that I truly believe in. If you get stomach aches, painful caffeine spikes or the jitters, consider trying out cold press coffee. It might change your life like it did mine.
I adore coffee and my favorite way to drink it is a half inch of concentrate, hot water, a spoon of local honey and a far too large dash of half-n-half. What's your favorite way to drink coffee?
