I just had to hit the Google to research that one a little bit. There is some evidence that paper removes some of the fat, but I saw no evidence paper pulled out caffeine. I am going to have to do some more digging, but I would hate if if something removed the caffeine from my coffee. Decaf coffee is almost as much of a sin as non-alcoholic beer (and I don't even drink).

Paper filters will remove some of the trans fats in the coffee, but as far as I have ever read (which is a fair bit), it does not remove the caffeine. Paper will get rid of more fines too, if you want a clearer cup.

Very true. Charbucks has very little caffeine to their coffee.
It is actually very interesting tasting coffees of varying roast levels, and how this affects the flavour. Lighter roasts definitely have more and different tastes, usually more hints of fruit and sweetness, darker starts bringing out various unsweetened chocolate and nutty flavours.

Re: Fix'in Coffee...Yummmmmm

I snag the coffee and accessory packs when I stay in hotels and use a Melitta single cup brewer like this. https://shop.melitta.com/itemdy00.asp?T1=64+007&Cat=

The used filter bag is easily discarded.

I only have one cup of free coffee a day so it works out OK for me.

Re: Fix'in Coffee...Yummmmmm

Thane, you just made me throw up a little in my throat.
I take my own coffee with me to drink in a hotel or go find a good cup somewhere, I have never found a good cup in a room.

Re: Fix'in Coffee...Yummmmmm

Although they serve the in-room coffee in a drip coffee maker, I fully believe it is instant coffee. Have to agree; a source of caffeine, but lousy taste!

Re: Fix'in Coffee...Yummmmmm

I think most of it is grounds, but very stale in most cases. I guess if I didn't roast to have fresh beans, and grind right before every use, I would not have spoiled myself so much.

Re: Fix'in Coffee...Yummmmmm

Those motel packs are filled with coffee dust! Who knows how many years ago it was ground, and to expect it has any oils left! I didn&#39;t want to sound negative, but I can&#39;t imagine coffee any worse...cheap...but really! (I always let Jim be negative first : - ) But I think I DID throw up)
Interesting article on the health benefits of coffee...fresh coffee, that is, with all it&#39;s essential nutrients.

Re: Fix'in Coffee...Yummmmmm

Jeez, some of you folks take your coffee pretty seriously. I'm just fine with my one cup a day.

Re: Fix'in Coffee...Yummmmmm

Well, I'm usually only one cup (well mug) a day as well, so it better be good!
