Coffee recommendations

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone :) 
 

I have never been some ones who has liked coffee I've always preferred tea, but I'm determined to add it to my diet. I work 12 hour shifts and usually start at either 4 or 5 am each morning so something to give me a pick me up through the day would be great. I've always heard a bunch of people use coffee as a pre workout  .  Can any one recommend a particular coffee you enoy? when you go to the shops there is literally an aisle full of different brands .

This morning for pre workout I'm having my usual 1 scoop of whey and 2 scoops of instant oats, I'm thinking I could change this some days depending on the outcome of this. I've heard bulletproof coffee is good for pre workout but not tried it?

Cheers

If you just want pre-workout caffeine and hate coffee, you can buy caffeine tablets pretty cheaply which can also be stronger if you want that.

It's hard to suggest coffee for someone who doesnt' like coffee. When I have instant it's currently this, which isn't bitter but you may still prefer something milder:

Damn you! I was going to say that :) Oh well, I'll have to settle for seconding it. A simple but excellent piece of kit as long as you are only brewing a cup at a time. Easy to use, no mess, no fuss and no grinds in your brew. What coffee you use comes down to personal taste and I have a fair few selections from my local specialist store that I'm working through. For a good strong off-the-shelf coffee that is value for money consider Bellarom Espresso from Lidl.

you snooze, you lose, brother.

I have a few cafetieres too, for when I'm brewing for many people but honestly the press comes out so much nicer.

Only takes 40 seconds per cup so can brew a few cups no bother.

Get one of these and use ground coffee as opposed to instant is my advice.

If you're not planning on spending a bomb on a coffee machine, then go instant. Douwe Egberts gold is my fave.

3 spoons and 3 sugars.

Ps. You suppose to drink the whey and oats post-workout, not pre.

I usually have a shake with whey and milk , then makeral and rice . thought that was good :))

I use one of them stove top coffee makers. I've found the asda special range(or whatever they call it) grounded coffee to be pretty good. You need to try a few different types to find what you like. For instant coffee the nescafe azera is pretty good for an instant but still not as good as fresh coffee.

Aeropress is the best you can get without coughing up for a full on espresso machine.

Coffee wise, Taylor's hot lava Java or decaf are very good.

Aldi speciality Ethiopian is a decent one and just two quid.

Instant wise it's a bit meh, best I've used is percol fusion Columbian.

Illy and lavazza are good, but seriously overpriced.

Nescafe Alta Rica is a decent instant.

If you want instant Kenco Milicano is good. If you want something really easy, not strong and extremely smooth I highly recommend Kenco 2 in 1, sadly it only comes in boxes of individual sachets, it's seriously lush though and is the closest I've found to the Dennys stuff I fell in love with last year in the states.
