Cream for coffee


Recommended Posts

I had it all planned to haul over 30 pounds of Columbian ( Dave's not here man LOL) figuring that would get me by for a year and save me $150 bucks or so but besides the hassle of carting the 10 cans and my small but excellent Cuisinart maker, I realized I gotta find cream or it won't work for me. So then if cream (not milk or Cremora) is hardly available (inconvenient ) and expensive ... I should change my MO to Expresso??? I can drink that without cream but I would rather have my 2 nice strong cups of coffee a day with the half and half. Here I buy a quart of ULTRA PASTEURIZED cream for $1.50 and it lasts me 2 - 3 weeks. So should I just forget coffee (rude awakening haha get it ?) or switch to expresso ?

If you want the brand name Half and Half I believe I've seen it here in the supermarkets. I'm not a big coffee drinker but I will keep an eye out for it and report back. But I'm sure someone else here knows first hand.

 

Edit: Sorry, I was thinking CoffeeMate, not h&h. We plan on going to S&R in the next few days and I will look for it there.

Eagle Brand Condensed Milk is okay in coffee.

 

Not the best solution but if you're willing to drink coffee made from beans roasted over a year ago you're obviously not very selective.

 

Either that or buy a goat.

 

Also, you can get very good recently roasted beans here for 300 pesos a kilo which is three bucks a pound.

I like the taste of coffee so no need for pollutants.

no I think I mean 220

Actually very good point. I ended up blowing up my power supply for my PC when I first arrived here simply because I forgot to move the switch on the back to 220 :( I felt like an idiot for not changing it BEFORE I arrived here.

Nah its good enough for me. Costco - Kirkland Columbian Supremo 3 pound cans $9 or 390 php(not a coffee snob) but just dark and fin grind enough for me. S&R price is 1,000 php. Just 3 well rounded tablespoons and a double filter and throw in 16 ounce of water, cream and sweetner and I'm gold. 3 lbs. lasts me 5 weeks here in U.S. (me alone) I could cut back some but then my gf she'll probably be doing half and halfs LOL.

 

BTW - Half and half refers to the ratio of half heavy cream and half whole milk.

 

Or I can forego the whole thing. The 3 months I spent there (2 trips) I had coffee twice. So I will survive if I don't and won't have to haul all that crap there LOL'

 

Electric ? I was just going to buy a few converters and put around where ever I live. Is that ill advised in the kitchen ? I might ask in another forum but anyways since the subject was brought up. Where is the best place to buy those converters in the U.S. or should I purchase there which is almost always not the answer ?

 

Sorry, if there is such stuff as far as half and half or real cream and is it hard to find and approx. cost (probably buy 250 gms size since not ultra-pasteurized) any info appreciated.

 

thanks

I like that but I add a little Jamesons and a hit of Gran Marnier and garnish with whip cream.
